Re: Signs From Sydney Australia

I used armour etching paste and came to the conclusion that i can make my own paste (will never use it by the way). But in this process i realized that it is definatly not as harmless as the company projects. It still has HF-acid as a base, but it is more controlable when handling it. I liked the s...

Re: Signs From Sydney Australia

Glass Mat Paste is an etching paste, similar to but not as good as the Acid People like Pat,Dave and Erik use. It can be applied via screen printing. As can be seen here http://www.agabe.com/en/mattglass.php I don't know of anyone who has used this paste but I am hoping that for those that don't, or...

Re: 276ccm: My work and progress..

Here is an example of a "seven" and a "continental seven"

In your piece you have changed one of the continental sevens so it looks out of balance.

Re: 276ccm: My work and progress..

The area with the circle should have a horizontal bar to match the other two 7's in the piece or the other two 7's should be changed to having no bar.
The number "2" and number "6" might look better if there curves were mirror images, if that makes sense.

Re: Signs From Sydney Australia

Well!! That's the first I've heard of that other than I knew it was done on site in the past. A little crazier might be the acid etching also done on site. I dug out a copy of SOT from Sept. 1958 that I stumbled on some years ago and in the questions and answer section there was one regarding "flak...

Re: 276ccm: My work and progress..

I know I am going to get shot at for saying this but the large 7 looks wrong since it has been changed from a "continental" 7.
There are three 7's in the artwork, two written continental style and the largest without.

I think they should all look the same, just my 2 cents worth.

If you have competition Dave, well you don't need me to tell you this work blows them away.
I wonder if this will give birth to a new genre amongst graphic designer/artists ?

Re: 276ccm: My work and progress..

Just another thought which you might find on other posts, the screen print ink was Colonial Ink's Dekor Gloss which we all used and the LHSS backing is a replacement of that. You might find a local supply of an ink that would be used as a substitute for it. Dekor was discontinued a number of years ...

The Soames Ales looks familiar.
Is that black on chipped glass or weathered paint?
Does anyone know of this brewery please, is it Australian or might it be a uk sign taken to Australia?
