Carved HDU Letters with Gold Leaf Finish

January 27th, 2014 by Dan Marquis

This sign is six feet wide and is fabricated from High Density Urethane (HDU). The loge is v-carved and finished with 23k gold leaf. The letters are carved with a prismatic face from 1" thick HDU and finished with 23k gold leaf. Gold leaf is best used on letters and graphics with an angular surface, as shown here, because it shows off the light that reflects off it. The name panels on the bottom panel are fabricated from 1/8" DiBond composite panels and lettered with vinyl, making them easy to change when needed. the panels are attached with brass screws to match with the gold leaf, as well as to prevent rusting. The posts are pressure treated 4 x 4s with white PVC sleeves and capped with copper finials.
