Painting signs for film and display

I was thinking of doing some step by step blogs on painting signs for film and display.  I'm not sure how much interest there is, but would be willing to do some projects and explain the process as I go. If you're interested, I'll put some projects together. Here are a couple of examples of signs done for film and display. The process I use really depends on the film or client.

 The two above pictures show the sign first painted and then after the aging process.

The pictures above are of signs that were painted for movies.

 This sign was painted to look 3 dimensional for a display. The sign is painted on MDO with water-based paints. Most of the signs I do for film and display are done with water-based paints. Please let me know if you're interested by becoming a follower or posting a comment. Thank you
