I finished the sign I've been making for work! This was a massive undertaking but I really enjoy painting so it was fun to work on and so satisfying to finish. The man who renovated the Bear Mountain Coffee House & Art Gallery last year helped us build the sign out of plywood and 2X4. Once the sign was built we painted it white with a primer. Then I painted the whole thing our navy blue color. It took several coats to cover it well. After that, I cut out the letters using my Cricut - each letter is approximately 8 1/2 inches tall. After they were all cut out I measured out my board then taped each letter and played around with the arrangement. I traced each letter with pencil, then painted each letter in with white, twice. Once all the letters were painted I put a few coats of polyurethane on the whole board. After this dried I then painted each letter again with polyurethane and before it dried I sprinkled reflective dust on it. This way in the evening each letter will be reflective for traffic passing by. It's a large sign measuring 10X8 feet so we put it on Hwy 60 as you are coming into town for travelers to read on their way in. It was a lot of hard work but turned out pretty good!
