Door Lettering

Finished up the Model-T with door lettering, red variegated gold leaf on the main copy and an off white wash with speed lines on the secondary.
The owner loves it and is working hard to get it ready for a local show Sunday morning.

Rescue Station 231, Toronto East.

Finished all the outlines on this fire fighter panel, 23k gold engine turned by hand, fun project and an honour to do.

Engine Turned Gold Leaf

New panel for one of our finest, all the respect in the world for front of the line service people.
I still have black outlines to do, but it looks so good just as is. More to come!

Sign Painting

Redid the outline on the name plates. It was great weather and had a ton of people walking by with great feedback on this sign.
One thing I did note is I need a sandwich board for when I'm out painting.

23K Gold Install

Winter finally came the same day I installed the gilded sign, design and built by yours truly. 1-Shot paint, letters are 23k german gold leaf with black outlines and the trim is all recycled hardwood.

The end of a book

Gold William
Here's where I end my night, I'd love to stay up all night but there's still lots to do at the 9-5 and I finished off a book of gold leaf. Outline still to be done.

Solid Adhesion

Making sure these letters have had good adhesion has taken up more of my waking moments that I care to admit. After several test panels to make sure I could have a nice finish as well as good adhesion, I went with masking off the area where the raised lettering would be, coated out the sign board (MDO) ,removed the mask and then secured the letters to the sign, leaving a nice finish and rock solid letters.
