This week’s featured sign: Hearthfire at Richard’s Lake

In 2003, Paxton Signs retro-fitted a newly designed Hearthfire community sign into an existing monument base.  We custom-cut and shaped the 4 ‘x 6’, two-sided sign that featured a handsome, hand-painted blue heron illustration. In addition, we gold-leafed an ornamental border and the hand-carved Hearthfire letters. This gave the sign a dimensional appearance. Finally, the finishing touch was adding a thin, turquoise blue trim – just enough color to set off the gold leaf elements and midnight blue background. Sometimes less is more!
