THROWBACK THURSDAY: Bella Fiore
The Bella Fiore storefront sign was one of Paxton Signs’ most memorable projects, dating back to the late 1990s. The sign’s high-profile border was hand-carved into High Density Urethane sections that were attached to a larger 5′ x 10′ HDU panel, using traditional tools, techniques and finishes to create the appearance of historic Italian exteriors. To replicate these authentic surfaces, the unfinished base and carved elements were “distressed” with cracks and blemishes prior to color-staining and applying faux finishes. The name, “Bella Fiore,” was hand-carved to imitate worn, aged lettering, then finished in the same fashion.
Paxton Signs’ more than 37 year history includes hundreds of signs. Some are major monument signs, some small business signs. We’ve created ranch signs, lighted signs, signs made from recycled wood, hand-painted signs, carved signs – a continuous variety of communication art.
