A feather in my cap...

 Finished and hung! The large metal sign that I have been working on for the last few weeks, has finally found it's home, and freed up some much needed shop floor space. I am sooo pleased with the way this sign turned out. The background is a 4 ft. x 10 ft. four sided flange pan, that I had powder coated in a rust color, and then added the faux rust patina with a mixture of One Shot paint, oil based stain and paint thinner. The added rivets were just for aesthetics, and were left bare to rust in the elements. The can letters are 30" high and 4" deep, and are highly polished aluminum (they look blue in the pictures, but that is just the reflection of the sky). The best part about it, is that it's hanging right downtown, on the main drag, for everyone to see... Perfect.
