It doesn’t take much hand sculpting to make a sign go from mildly dimensional to off the wall different. In the case of the Skull Rock Scramble sign it looked pretty good with just the random shape, the texture and raised lettering. Adding Webster, the turtle Gruffle changed it in a big way without a doubt and he took only a couple of hours to create.. (This time includes my helper’s time.) But we weren’t nearly done yet.
I spent another twenty minutes with our air powered die grinder to extend the gnarly rock texture around the sides, top and bottom of the sign. Then it was time for another bit of sculpting.
The rocks were extended a little to create the skull eyes and the detail around the mouth. The palm tree was the final detail to take the dimension over the top.
