Once the clamps came off it was time for the handwork. The thing I love about Precision Board os how easy to works. There is no grain to fight with. It is predictable. The die grinder I was using went through the 30 lb board like butter. I started with the edges, trimming the glue lines first, then adding a subtle texture over the entire surface. The scroll required a bit of hand work to form the deep curls - but the sign came together in minutes. A little had carving on the mountain complete that portion of the sign.
Then it was time for a little hand sculpting using an epoxy sculpting medium. It is best compared to plasticine that gets rock hard in about 3 hours.
Then it was time for a little sculpting using an epoxy medium. I used this to create the foreground trees on the lower mountain and the rows of plants in the field. Those didn't take long. At this stage the pictorial is pretty bland but it will come alive as the paint goes on.
