    All 1-Shot lettering enamel on Alupanel®.

    That is really nicely done. Did you just lightly stabillo a few rough guide lines on the panel before dipping your brush or did you computer generate a pattern? I gotta break out my brushes and revisit my "old school" more this year.

    Really beautiful work! Has good flow and a nice color pallet. Only thing I could critique on is the drop shadows on "Wrecking"... With that wave in the text, it seems like the drop shadow should be on the Left side of the letters but just my two cents :D

    Seeing as how there are two signs and possibly two more come spring, I made a simple computer generated pattern.

    I should add that these were mounted back to back about 12 feet above grade along a busy highway.

    Very nice, :) Is all of the smaller lettering, single stroke? If so, super nice job!!!

    Thank you, No, I would have had to use a flat and that wouldn't have given enough smooth coverage. I used a #20 Brown Quill to obtain good coverage without a second coat on the Dark Blue. The Yellow over Dark Red was a first coat of White with a dash of Silver added and then a second coat of Chrome Yellow lightened up with white.

    I am sure you had a good reason but why didn't you just cut in the red around the yellow copy on that bottom copy. Is it because of the brush strokes showing up to much?
    Don't take it wrong on my question, the sign came out beautiful the way you did it.

    That would have taken much more brush work and time. Red doesn't cover worth a crap when brushed and it wouldn't have looked as clean.
