Yesterday I worked on the signs adding color after color, glaze after glaze. Each stage went quickly and by the time I was done every square inch of the signs had at least four layers of paint/glaze - some up to six coats. Because of the design and routing of multiple layers and lots of textures the process went easy. For tricky areas like the lettering I just had to drag a brush over the raised parts making cutting of the edges a snap.
Now it will be up to the owners to chose their favorite and I'll hang the other in my studio as a sample piece. Having finished samples on hand makes it easy to sell more of this kind of work in the future.
If it was your choice which one would you pick?
I do have a favorite but I'm not telling...
