Texturing With FSC-88 WB

Dan Sawatzky is known for using a wide variety of interesting textures in the signs he creates. One technique he is fond of using is applying FSC-88 WB with random brush strokes to add texture to routed letters. To quote Dan, ” I don’t want my signs to look like a machine made them. I want them to look handmade.” With Dan’s technique you get all of the benefit of a routed edge for achieving clean paint lines, while introducing an interesting hand-crafted look. Adding fine details like this helps you command premium dollar for your signs.

And the finished product is stunning! To read more about the techniques used to produce this sign, visit Dan’s blog post . Or follow other Dan Sawatzky projects at Speaking From Experience.
