The streetcar glued together quickly. There was still a little hand work to do but it didn’t take long. The Precision Board sands easily and in only a few minutes to was ready to mate with the rest of the sign.
This was just a small sample sign measuring about two feet square and six inches deep but the detail I was able to achieve was incredible!
The electrical pickups were fashioned from welding rod. I painted on the base coats of color during brief periods during the day allowing it to dry between. A dark red glaze was added to the bottom to highlight the textures. The last touch was a little gold leaf to add some bling.
In a period of only three days and only using spare minutes I had created a wonderful sample piece for our trade show display.
