painted background

Since my 3d background is currently on hold I decided that I wanted to do a background on my nursery tank as well. but this time I wanted to paint it.
So I took one of my husbands favorite quotes and started stenciling it on the back of the tank

After that I added another coat

I taped off the sides and top and spray painted the rest white

Let it dry this afternoon, put water back in and am very happy how it turned out

Wow! It looks great! I suggest getting white sand and some silver/white decor to go with it

I like it because if I get bored with it (which I often do with my tank decor) I can just scrape it off and paint something else
