      Looks good Dave,

      I would suggest giving the Cozza name a little more room at the edges, more like the B and H on the bottom line.

      Wonderful work, Dave. Just beautiful.

      I agree with Rick, your Cozza's a little cramped, but otherwise all I see is a great period sign and false front.

      So Dave am I understanding correctly what you are doing here. Did you make the wood master, then make a high res scan of it so that you could then make a photo background for the sign to then print it out?

      @Devon.... You got it........   But I'm also thinking that I can use it for other printed stuff ( in layers with other stuff )  I'll have to do some more work in Photoshop to be able to use it as a drop mask to overlay over anything..

      Got the finishing touches done, and the glamor shots taken yesterday....

       

      Had to make a temporary sign, as printer problems got in the way.

      Oh well....

      You really put the Taylor Materials Group (Taylor Tin, Taylor quarry, and Taylor Window and Sash) to work this year.

      Dave,

       

      looking at the glamour shots you posted in the show off thread you mention the stones are cut from the local rock. That really comes to life in those shots. You did an excellent job of color matching your stones to the native rock in your layout. Yet another take away from your excellent work. When I did my build this year I made no attempt to match either my cut stones or the dino turd to the native rock of my layout which is primarily a very white granite or black basalt. This is something to consider in the future, especially considering the amount of rock in my layout. Nicely done.

      Just to finish out.... A couple of Glamor shots that didn't get used for the pic posting.

      Some roofing detail.....   BTW the anvil and hammer were my first ever sculpt molding....  I did put a wire thru the handle and hammer head

      Dave

      I have been a little busy and have not been following your awesome Blacksmith shop. Now playing catch up, I love your technique, the stone looks very nice for the infamous fire hazardous structure.. I love your front with the cool looking business name. Your technique of the stone is very appropriate,

      Great Job

      Dennis
