Reproduction of a Scalloped Sign and Steps

Post by Andrew Lawrence » Sat Oct 27, 2018 1:34 pm

I post a good deal on the social medias but thought I'd share here since it's an invaluable resource.

I first saw the original of this piece in the book "California's Best" that has a small section on breweriana and glass signs. There's a local bay area man that has an original so I was referencing both that piece and the photo in the book. I ended up making two of them total, one which was entirely mirrored and the other which was a bit more accurate to the original and gilded in the center area.

Process was as follows.

Vector artwork, add inlines, Scallop edges, clean.

apply mask, Peel centers,

Acid etch centers, wash with water, peel brightline

Chemically silver (spray) lettering, back up with silver back up paint, peel mask,

Gild (back up)

Paint in Eagle motif. Paint Background, Paint Blend.

Couldn't really get great photos of the blend - camera didn't pick it up. ... e=5BD4D7B7
