I had to share this one: it turned out pretty bad-ass in my (not so) humble opinion...
This was a custom request from a couple in Germany for their gym: they have been so cool to work with & I LOVE the way the sign came out! The logo is from Quake III (a game); and I absolutely am enamored with it! For the red piece: I polished the steel, then painted it with a candy-apple finish. In the light, you can still see the polish through the paint.
The background is mirror, with steel & aluminum gears. All metal was cut by water-jet for maximum precision: a must on a design like this! Thanks to Robo-Jet for the help on this one : )
Tomorrow, the sign will be making it's long journey to it's permanent home in Germany: how cool is that?? It's so fun doing projects for people on the other side of the world: I never would have thought we would be shipping things world-wide....lol ; )
We have a busy week lined up: I will be updating as we go---we have new baby ducks & turkeys, as well as lots of projects in the works: stay tuned!
