It is hard to believe that it was only seven years ago I witnessed a CNC router in action for the very first time. I was fascinated and simply had to have one! Although I had been in the creative end of the three dimensional sign business for most of my life I didn't really know what I would do with one - but I just knew it could do fantastic stuff.

Through extensive research I quickly found out that with the relative simplicity of EnRoute, CNC routers were capable of just about anything imaginable. This journal will chronicle that journey to date and continue each week with two or three entries as we continue to explore just what is possible with this wonderful software... -dan

Movie of glazing process

Writing about the glazing process never seems to get enough information across to the readers. It is but one of the many things we teach in our workshops, best done with a demonstration and then practice. 

Since I can't come to see you and how you are doing it a video will have to do here.  

I also grabbed three photos of the sign after I had finished putting on the glaze. It shows in better detail how I wiped off the high points, leaving the glazes in the lows.

Once the glaze was dry I went back and put a couple of coats of the Modern Masters metallic gold on the top surface of the lettering to finish off the sign.

So hopefully this little video answers a few more questions for everybody.
