This was a bit of an experiment conducted after building the Red Deer Child Care sign. Rather than using a wood grain texture and colouring, I went for a bronze age colour and texture to creat these pieces. I used the Trotec Speedy 400 laser
to cut these pieces out of HDU sign substrate and to engrave the cracked texture. Once this machine work was finished, I painted these pieces by hand using a variety of metal effects paints and glaze. A final dry brush treatment was used to highlight the base colours of each piece. This experiment is not done yet. A special lighting treatment is planned to outline all the puzzle pieces.
