I have recieved numerous emails asking how I painted the checks on knobs. So, here's a quick tutorial - its very EASY. Buy 2 white knobs:
Pencil lines down center and across center:
Use those lines to create wider lines (the width is your choice), both ways:
I begin in the center and color inside every other block to create the checks:
I use a Sharpie Marker with a good point - and I use a Krylon Gold Leaf marker to trim the edges:
I trim the edges with gold:
These photos are not too clear, but I think you get the idea. Imagine the possibilities... polka dots, stripes, zigzags, flowers....so easy to do and there is no reason to spend between $10.00 and $30.00 for a knob!! If you make some, share a photo with me!
I'm saving these as a gift for my 100th follower- and I am so close!!
