With jam and bread. Nick G Traditional sign writer London

Jam and Bread Lee London… Just done.

Client was delighted with this sign, written today in quite difficult circumstances… Next door is a large development and the work today coincided with the paint removal by jet blasting. So between intermittent gusts of diesel, wind spray and a heavy soaked tarpaulin work was easy!


Anyhow the process involved sharp rendering and a chalk effect on the main letters. This was created by using first coat slightly rough, second coat brown background fidgeting in and finally returning to the White dry brush and touching in delicate distressed edges.

Staring at 9am and finishing at 4 in fading light it was a full day and great result.
