I bought these letters for decorating Jack's room a little bit ago. Finally, I got around to painting and decorating them. I bought an inexpensive 6 pack of acrylic paint that had the primary colors, green, black and white. I knew I was going to do his letters in the basic colors so I completed it first. I have letters for Lily, too, which I will have to blend the colors to get the pink, purple and lavender that I want.
