Next, we ordered the 18 lb High density foam to fit a 5ft by 8ft sign and the production began…

We started by embedding a french cleat on the back of the foam for easy hanging… then we primed and painted the foam black then applied a mask film over the top and used the CNC to carve the letters into the foam… Next we primed all the letters


Then we painted the letters…

Meanwhile, the wood frame was carved and painted and glued to the foam…  edited-6321 edited-6337 edited-6338 edited-6339  edited-6340

Epoxy clay was used to create some metal, medieval looking hardware for the frame…

After the letters were dry, we pulled off the mask and did a little more painting and touch up work…
