    I actually think you should do all three. They all look great when lit. No preference here!

    just throwing this out there….spray paint?? maybe that will reduce the amount of texture you’d see when they’re lit up. could also try gold markers….at michaels in the art supply aisle. you have to shake them up just like a can of spray paint.  good luck!! i think whatever you choose will come out great.

    @MandaMack: I actually prefer brush stroke one, although if I could see it up close I have a feeling I would also like brush stroke three. I think #1 looks more sleek and uniform.

    I like the first one – it’s not too perfect that it’s not handmade but it’s not so overly textured.

    Good luck!

    I love the dabbing the most, but i think a mixture of all three would look really awesome.

    I honestly think all three options look great and it’s really hard to choose!  Based on the close up photos, I think the first option gives a romantic, sweet look, whereas the second one is a funkier look.  From what I can see of the third one, I think it would be a cross between the first two. 

    Regardless, I think you can’t go wrong with whichever one you pick – they all look great!

    I like the 1st and 3rd ones but I think I like the 1st one best.

    I like all of them, especially number 2. I agree with a PP- all the techniques mixed in the centerpieces would look good.
