Circus Sign

The circus needed a large sign to indicate the entrance and to set a little atmosphere. We started by designing the logo and then printing it onto a 3' X 6' piece of paper. From there, my brother and his girlfriend and I painted over each of the letters, using them as guides. Paul did a great job of blending the yellow and purple paint and then outlining the letters in green. We mounted the paper to a sheet of luan to keep it light (using wallpaper paste for that circus poster look) and then framed it out and added glass balls that are lit from behind.
