It’s not very often we paint our signs in pieces and then assemble afterwards. Most often, especially for outdoor projects I like to route in as few pieces as possible and then securely glue and fasten together before the painting process began.
In this case the piece will be displayed indoors. Compared to most pieces we build this one is fragile. The only way to realistically paint it was to do the bulk of it separately and then assemble before finishing the outside surfaces. As each piece came off the MultiCam today I did a little finishing handwork and then test fit everything. Then all of the inside surfaces got their first coat of paint.
