    Great work Terry, I wondered did you back it up in black on the inside of the glass to hide the brush markes or leave the work as it stands ?

    WOW!!! – sexy or what [wolf whistle]

    Great Composition..

    Great Colour…

    Great Style and Rhythm…

    …and a tiny little signature too! [grin]

    A classic piece of shop window art.

    Would absolutley love to see a few photos of the process sometime? – Even though I don’t paint – I’d just like to see how it all comes together!

    thanks for sharin’ Terry

    Wow im gettin embarrased now- thanks
    In future I will attempt to take pics as I work and will gladly post them ,
    Perhaps you could put them together Mike if give you details
    As I painted the panels and main text in white primer first with brush and roller from the inside thats what you see – snot a pretty site but then I scraped them off 2 weeks later -NOW THAT HURTS
    They stored baskets against the reverse anyway

    If they were more permanant id have done it all on the inside

    hi terry.. thanks for the offer mate…
    any demo etc can be sent to myself to load on our servers.
    all i need from you is the images and the text to go with them.
    each image must be named so as to pair with the text.
    e.g. part 1 goes along with picture1 part 2a goes along with picture 2a and so on…

    once this is done just e-mail me it and ill load it mate…

    thanks again! and thanks for showing us all some cracking signs…
    its always good to se the traditional work still being done..
    thanks for sharing 😉

    Fantastic job if you used emamel paint.

    Most jobs I use acrylic fluorescent paint 😆

    Please reply what sort of emamel you use for window jobs? 😉

    Lovely Job Terry,
    Do you work from a pattern or is it all freehand – the chiseled letters look especially good – I’d love to get into this type of work but I’d have to do a reverse patter with a pen in the plotter to rough it out with a chinagraph pencil first. What type of paint do you use, how long did it take to do, how long does it take to dry and HOW MUCH?……I know…bloody nosey $%@*
    Keep the pics coming mate….
