Dimensional Mechanic Sign – Rustic wood & pop out letters

A recent sign…

Sculptural signs

After a few design iterations, the customer was happy with this graphic.

Heritage Auto

The background is made of weatherproof 1″ HDU 15 lb. foam and hand carved to look like rustic wood. Two panels were carved to go back to back to make a double sided sign.

The letters were carved out of .5″ acrylic and painted.

Next, layers of color were added to the wood texture. Starting with black, then dry brushing browns over the top to give the illusion of real wood. Rebekah did a great job texturing and painting!

A steel frame was embedded in between the foam sheets for structural support.

Next, everything was glued together with construction adhesive caulk and clamped.
