Going green

Today it was time for some color on the Laughing Tortoise Beer sign.  I painted the base colors first. 

Then I layered on a series of glazes, gradually building up the color of the piece. I allowed it to dry in between coats.

 

With all the colored layers in place it was time for one last dark glaze to tie everything together... and then the last was the gold on the letters.

Now it is on to the next - already in progress.
