A gift for an artist friend. The backboard is 9” X 22” X 1/2” yellowheart. The letters are 1/8” baltic birch plywood. The yellow heart was sprayed with pre-catalyzed lacquer sanding sealer followed by three coats of pre-catalyzed lacquer. The letters were painted with Krylon 2X spray then attached with epoxy. I chose West Systems epoxy because it is less viscous. That made it easier to brush a thin coat on the back of the letters and prevented squeeze out. The original font was from a bumper sticker. I had it enlarged to create the patterns for the letters then rearranged them. I designed the corner pieces and used them in lieu of a frame around the sign.
