With numerous signs on the go progress sometimes seems slow. Each sign gets no less than three coats of each base colour plus multiple glazes. each coat of paint has to dry before the next is applied. This means we work a little on one sign, then jump to the next and the next before returning to the first to begin the process anew. But the sign's colours are slowly deepening and the textures and woodgrains slowly coming alive. On occasion we also switch directions midstream, changing colours to create a slightly different look - all in the hope of making a better sign. It is exciting to see the gradual change of each piece. This is going to be an incredible collection when it is finished.
