I've done this for two of my cousin's. I also bought the pre-painted white letters. With the first set of letters I made, I used arcylic paint and hand painted them, in my honest opinion, that was a huge waste of time and a pain in the butt. I used spray paint on the second set of letters and finishing them went by a lot faster.

Hand painting them took me about 9-10 coats to get the smooth look. With the spray paint, I propped the letters up on two pieces of wood, sprayed each side maybe 3 times, letting it air dry 20 minutes between sprays and I got the smooth look and texture as well. Of course, I did this outside on the back deck.

I also added little stickers as well, I got those at Michael's too, along with the finishing spray, which had a glitter finish to it.

Here's the letters I painted by hand:

Hope this helps!!!
