I got so into painting the lettering I forgot to take a picture of the last coat of glaze. It was a dark brown glaze over the entire sign including the bird and worm. I left a little more glaze around the lettering to make sure the lettering jumped out. Because I had raised the lettering about 1/8" it was quick and easy to paint the tops, just dragging the brush along the edge. It didn't take a lot of skill. Practice does make it go a lot faster however.
The big letters were triple coated, the small ones were done in only two coats. Then I added the pupils to the eyes of the bird and worm, and a tiny white highlight to make them come alive. And just like that it was done!
I'll let it harden up for a day or two before I package it up and send it off.
Now it is on to the next...
