Beetlebaum and Prince Canaveral

Back in the spring, I made a couple of signs to give to the young lady who purchased two of our horses, Beetlebaum and Prince Canaveral.

I imported photos we had of these horses into Easel software and came up with these designs.

The designs were carved into a couple pieces of wood (poplar I think), then a coat of shellac was applied for a sealant.

Next, I mixed up some epoxy with black colourant and filled the carvings.

A good sanding cleaned up any spill-over and I then applied three or four coats of varnish. On the back side, I cut a key-hole so they could be hung up and added my logo.
