Re: Glass Signs (Showcase your work here!)

nice looking panel Rod ! Now tell me about the "snail" chip .......was that intentional ? I've gotten chip like that before, but it seems accidental with me. Mitchell's chipping book states this type of chip happens ehen it's hot and dry, and with less glue per sq ft. (.95 to 1.1 ozs rather than 3.7...

keeping quick size drives my nutty..........

I don’t use quick size very often because my preference is to use slow, but I do like having a ½ pint of it around for certain applications now and then. My problem with quick size (be it Rolco or One Shot) is that I can never seem to have it stay fluid in the can or squeeze bottles very long before...

Re: Do we still call ourselves signmakers?

Martin, I introduce myself to clients as a sign artist.....because that's how I approach sign making.....and other than the kind of work I do, giving myself that distinction seems to create a separation between me and other signmakers in my area.
