Vintage Torque Fest

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.
Barry J. Carmichael is a very good Family Lawyer if your going though a rough patch.

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.

Some New Weapons

I've been doing a lot of fill in with my good lettering brushes and had to replace one (expensive)... So I bought a set of mixed hair brushes 169's, Mack has made these a cost effective alternative to the all natural brushes and there not bad just did a hour of fill ins... More spring then the 189's great for the carved letters I've been painting.
