I'm glad that my job is just making the things.
Sure wouldn't want to be the poor guy who has to truck 'em through the woods and screw them to the posts.
They are 14ga steel and are damned heavy. :?

I wanted to post a pic of Bronze Bead Blast, before and after the clear coat.
This is a tough color to capture.

So just for the heck of it, here it is sans the clear.
Maybe someone will enjoy the wall-hanging. :)

Customer wants her name on a Mexican flag. I have a problem cutting into ANY flag - it just seems disrespectful to me.
So I've cut the name so that it can be glued to the piece by her father after both pieces are finished.

Does anyone know the correct proportions of a flag? It will need to be 15" wide but I don't know how tall to make it. I could guess, but it's that respect thang, ya know.

Also, what order would you do the coating? I'm paranoid about the red bleeding into the white, not so much with the green on the other side.
Planning on using SD Wet White, Emerald Green and Signal Red.

Custy hasn't picked a color for the name yet, so I haven't cleaned it up yet.

Mexican flag is 4:7, not 2:1(4:8) ;) 8.57"x 15" and obviously the stripes will be 5" wide.

I would shoot the whole thing white, then mask for the green and red. Seems simple enough.
What are you doing for the logo in the center?

Just a piece of paper made a world of difference.
You can see this from the far end of the farmers market.

Looks like you need some neon green powder and some thin sheet for backing...
