No holds barred on this one. This elaborate sign was created as a tribute to my dear friend and mentor, Rick Glawson. It combines multi-staged acid embossing, textured acid etching, glue chipping and sand carving. It has assorted karats of water and surface gilded gold leaf and composition metals along with glass jewels, watch crystals, and abalone border all set against a royal blue glass smalt background.
