It is hard to believe that it was almost ten years ago I witnessed a CNC router in action for the very first time. I was fascinated and simply had to have one! Although I had been in the creative end of the three dimensional sign business for most of my life I didn't really know what I would do with one of these machines - but I just knew it could do fantastic stuff.

Along with the CNC router I discovered the wonderful material called Precision Board and the glues, primers and other companion products they offer. Since then we have gone through many tons of the material using it in most signs and projects we tackle. This journal will chronicle our many adventures both past, present and future. I'll talk from the perspective of someone who pushes these products to the creative limit on a daily basis. I'll be adding to the stories two or three times each week. -dan

Movie of glazing process

Writing about the glazing process never seems to get enough information across to the readers. It is but one of the many things we teach in our workshops, best done with a demonstration and then practice. 

Since I can't come to see you and how you are doing it a video will have to do here.  

I also grabbed three photos of the sign after I had finished putting on the glaze. It shows in better detail how I wiped off the high points, leaving the glazes in the lows.

Once the glaze was dry I went back and put a couple of coats of the Modern Masters metallic gold on the top surface of the lettering to finish off the sign.

So hopefully this little video answers a few more questions for everybody.
