I needed a new sign for my studio door. Something welcoming and cheerful. Something that says, pleas don't bother me when I'm yelling at my machine or creatively cussing at my seam ripper.



A piece I designed, transferred using a photocopy and golden gel medium. I painted some rough color behind it first, and then added some fun alphabet stickers. I also added some copper leafing to the eyes and bolts, just to steampunk it up a bit.



I gave it a coating of varnish and now it's my new door sign!
