    1. Sand the entire surface of the sign.
    2. Instruction #1
    3. Paint the sign in Navy and wipe it back with a dry rag, keeping the natural wood grain intact. (Do this panel by panel so that the paint does not dry to the point where it cannot be removed.)
    4. Instruction #2
    5. Map out the wording with a fine point black marker and then paint the words in Lamp Black.
    6. Instruction #3
    7. Paint some of the stars in Warm White. Mix Warm White and Slate Grey to make a very light grey color, one that has little contrast to the Warm White, and paint the remainder of stars in this mix.
    8. Instruction #4
    9. Glue the stars to the surface of the sign using E6000 Glue in the shape of the state, alternating between the Warm White and the light grey painted stars.
