Carved and Painted sign for Chiropractor

Postby BillK » Fri Mar 22, 2019 3:59 pm

Here is the final product of a sign carved into PVC trim board. The PVC boards take paint very well. Plan your carving well, hold your zero and have a way to relocate the piece and the painting can be relatively easy. Any questions?

Hi! This sign is 16 inches in diameter and is 3/4” thick. It is made from (3) pieces nominal 1x8 trim board edge glued together.

Thanks.

Turned out very sharp. Nice paint job, too, with great contrast.

Thanks! I think the key was getting the black pretty much perfect. 4 coats flat black brushed on with orbital sanding after coat 3 and 4. Then sprayed flat black. Then 2 coats of sprayed acrylic matte clear finish. The other colors were brushed on acrylics. The white is the natural color of the PVC material.
