Cookie’s tool set was a whole lot of fun to create. Since the last post on the project we’ve hand brushed three coats of base colors on (all acrylic house paints). Then the glazes went on the wood, starting with the lightest and working towards the darkest. After the piece is covered the glaze is gently wiped off leaving excess in the crevices and deeper portions of the texture. The tools themselves also got the same treatment. After all the glazes were on and dry I used a dry brush technique to ‘shiny up’ the edges and surfaces that would be shiny from daily use. The end result is pretty cool.
Everyone loves tools!
The two signs make for a great pair, the first identifying the establishment and providing humor and character. The second sign which will be located inside provides the punchline.
Dreaming up and creating this kind of fun signage makes me laugh trough every workday. It sure beats working!
