This is a very nice sign. It’s very crisp and clean.

Really nice work!
Any idea what the upper area will be for?

Hi Aaron -
First off I’d like to say i think your work is REALLY good and perhaps someday I’ll venture down the road of hand-carving. Your project caught my eye most likely because I just got a new lettering template kit and will be attempting my first sign using a router in the near future. Being new to this, can you offer advise on painting the letters – brush sizes, type of paint, keeping things neat & clean, etc.? Thanks Aaron and again, great work sir!

They actually wanted the upper area to be plain. I had suggested a geometric pattern, but they wanted plain.
brush size really depends on the size of the letters, or the parts of the letter being painted. I had to use a really small brush for the serifs. You might actually use scissors to cut the bristles shorter to make them stiffer.
