Going for the gold

The 2016 Sign Challenge to be held at the International Sign Association Expo is coming fast! Peter’s and my entry pieces have been ready since the new year but before we sent them off we had one more piece to build. It’s the trophy that all of the entrants are hoping for.

The design of the prize is meant to reflect the competition itself. The dimensional letters are stacked up inside a crate. The letters will be gold while the welded metal box will be rusted metal. All will be mounted and displayed on a tall pedestal. A few more coats of gold paint are still to come and the metal box still needs more work. The pedestal base has yet to be started. It’s a fun little project.
