Very nice quality work Phillip, I'm assuming it's made from HDU? I went through many of Sawazky's tutorials online and made my own versions of some of the name signs he's done, it's was a great experience to learn the techniques. Now you have a nice sample you can be proud of!

This one is really cool Phillip. You've come a long way in a short amount of time. I wish I had your artistic ability in design, etc. You'll be deadly with a cnc. LOL

Thanks guys, I had fun with it

The background is HDU, grain texture added with a grain brush (aka wire brush). Painted and washed with thinned black paint to age it and bring out the texture.

The screw heads are 2 part epoxy clay painted with Rustoleum's version of modern masters bronze, also washed with black.

The letters is HDU hammered (litteraly, with a hammer) painted with Rustoleum Champagne and washed with black.

Working on some more now, I'll post when I'm done

Sure do like that look Phillip. Need to find me some Rustoleum Champagne paint.
Guess I'm not familiar with the two part epoxy clay. Where did you acquire yours?

Never mind found the clay
www.amazon.com/Magic-Sculpt-Lb-Epoxy-Clay/dp/B003AL71FI

** here is a question though. Would you or anyone consider doing something as
big as say a human head with epoxy clay without it sagging and such?

Mark, if you have Menards near you, they sell the Rustoleum metallics there.

This is the brand of epoxy I use, it's a bit cheaper than Magic Sculpt. Really nice stuff:

Thanks Phillip. I like what I see. Do you think you could do a head sculpture without it sagging
during the process? Or maybe do it in layers.

I think you would rough it out of foam and skin it with the epoxy?
