Stockton Court House Glass wall

Post by Robert Beverly » Thu Aug 08, 2013 4:38 pm

Hey Guys...

Funny how we get over 150k of work on this new courthouse in Stockton shortly after they file bankruptcy!...Take a guess of my terms!

Anyhow...I am not sure how this glass is listed but I don't know of a glass company who could pull this off...so it might just be a great project for a Larry or Pat!

Bids are due in by the 13th...and I have the nbbj designer's info if anyone is interested in it.

Robert

The more I look at this, the more involved the glass is, just more straightforward type work...but hey...looks like a nice little project for someone out there. I just have too much exposure already on this to go after the glass as well.
If there is interest I can try to upload the art...It is under the sign package purvey...and not sure it is all of it but I have two companies so far that have approached me for my pricing on our work and expect a few more...that you might piggy back off of.

It is A 12meg file if anyone wants it.

Hey Robert,
That looks like quite an interesting job. Thanks for posting it.
I've done some half tone and mezzotint etchings.
Adding a paint fill can prevent a photograph etched onto glass from flipping between a positive and a negative image in certain lighting conditions.

Other ways to display etched photos without adding color are with edge lighting and controlled ambient light.
(These photos are tagged edge lit and non lit) The dot size depends greatly on the panel size and the contrast needed
for the photo to read well. Usually, a larger photo panel demands a larger dot size or it does not "pop" and
looks fuzzy or out of focus.

What Dave says Pat, seriously good.

This job has your name written on it.
How is it possible to fill in those miniscule points with paint, when the mask you make is rather thick (I guess) and when the mask must be still very dusty from blasting? Or can you hose the dust down easily with water?

Yes very cool new things to see on the forum: Dave, Vladimir and Pat who else?
Gives a hungry smile on my face, thank you.

Still in the learning phase ;-)
