Snapbacks are not just for the boys anymore.  Some of the most fashionable fashionistas have been spotted rocking this new trend. I found a plain snapback while grocery shopping in Walmart for dirt cheap. All there is to do now is give it my own personal touch.

Do one letter at a time then continue to the next letter until you are finished. Apply a second coat of paint to make your letters darker.
