In one of the trees we sculpted at the Fox & Hounds restaurant a sign will hang on a branch overhead. To start the sign I opened the driftwood bitmap from the Texture Magic Collection in Photoshop.
I used the warp tool to shape the bitmap to a gentle 'S' curve.
I traced the outline with vectors and then imported them into EnRoute.
I also opened, copied and pasted the fox medallion into EnRoute, resized it to an appropriate size and added some shoulder pieces to make the sign flow. I added some sandblasted woodgrain texture to this piece.
I created a separate relief of the lettering border and then added the domed lettering. I created a second copy of the sign and flipped it before adding the lettering to each. That way the two sides would fit together and forma a double sided sign.
Tomorrow I'll route the signs and then glue them up so I can finish this portion of the project off.
