Sign On Wood
"My wife opened a new initiative, a greenhouse for the cultivation of Succulent plants. I created a sign with the name of the branding "Santa Succulenta" that will express the concept of sustainability, reuse of materials and closeness to the earth and nature. The board I used was taken from an old wooden pallet. I've edited the logo in a graphic software and I've adjusted the letters to a size that fits the board nicely. because of its size, I had to split the logo into 2 pages (A3) and overlap it so that it would be easy to match the letters."

I've edited the logo in a graphic software and I've adjusted the letters to a size that fits the board nicely. because of its size, I had to split the logo into 2 pages (A3) and overlap it so that it would be easy to match the letters.

I've cut the inside of the letters with a sharp knife, and made sure to leave the center of the letters if they needed a "bridge". for example: the letter A.
I've cleaned the dust and dirt from the board surface before i added masking tape stripes. I've took the stencil and laid it on the masking tape and carefully marked with pencil all the contours of the letters. I've took a sharp knife and made cuts on the pencil marks, then I've peeled the letters out. now all that I needed to do is to pick a color and go over the letters with a brush.
I've waited for the paint to dry - usually the Drying time is written on the can. then I removed all the masking tape and discovered the beautiful golden letters, I've inserted two screws on the back of the board, added an iron wire and the sign is finished !
