We haven’t done a step-by-step article since the one about faux woodgrain. Time for another one! Here’s a sign we made last year, which I photographed at various stages of production. Here’s the sequence (albeit incomplete):
Painting the panel with a roller
Hand-carving the groove
And the letters
Meanwhile, the add-on was being hand-sculpted. Can you tell what it will be?
Painting the letters and grooves
Artist-Painting the add-on. It’s a loon.
Painting the trim with a roller
Screwing in the stainless steel eye-bolts.
And finally, the finished product!
If anyone happens across this sign, in the region of Farmingdale, New York, please send us a photo!
