Printing on gessoboard. Gessobord is a wonderful surface for patterns made with stencils or block prints. For this painting, I carved a koi design into a soft rubber block of Safety-Kut™ using Speedball® linoleum block cutters. I mixed acrylic paint and Golden® Acrylic Glazing Liquid (this keeps the acrylic from drying too fast) and applied it to the block with a rubber brayer
The IDIYA part of this sign was cut in cardboard with our Laser Cutter and then stacked to create the extruded look off the wall. An acrylic plate was cut for each letter to safety harness the wires of the LEDS. The white Leds are ran 9 in series, @ 25.6V and 20mA, while the orange LEDS are ran 15 in series @ 27.9V also 20mA... AND... this sign is only using 25 watts of power and is super bright from the road.
