South Austin Music sign finished!

silvamaeFebruary 8, 2012

Grouted it yesterday and sealed the grout and painted the edges today. It will be picked up soon, hopefully tomorrow, and I will take another picture of it installed on the front of the business. I am so happy and ready to move on to another project, this next one will be saturated with color!!

Oh thanks! Yes, color! That's what it's all about. However, the black and white should be striking.

I put the wrong link on the first post, here's the right one:

I know ya did, I had to do a little hunting for it. Its perfect for this, bold combination and really shows off as a professional mosaic with the B&w contrast!

Hi, murraysmom, yes, the blue guitar was done on a real guitar. The guitar was cracked and had some holes in it and was donated to me.

Went by there tonight on the way to dinner and I took a picture and posted it on the blog. The owner said I needed to come by again in the morning time because it faces east and he said this morning it looked really good in the morning light. The owner and all his employees were so happy with it. Makes me feel good. If you're ever in Austin, it's at 1402 South Lamar.

Thanks, you all. Yes a video camera focused on it would be fun. I ground all the edges of every single piece because it is so low and right beside the front door of a business, I want it to be okay for customers' children to reach over and touch it.

Nice, the pickles are right behind the sign and about to roll right over it! Toomuch, the sign was on the floor in my dining area and I had to climb up on it sometimes to reach the middle. Thanks for the kind words!

I know how proud you must be of this gigantic accomplishment. I'd probably sit outside w/a sign that says "I did that". Great work, SILVA. Congrats on such an honor to be asked to do this.

Thanks, all! By the way, we went to the Saxon Pub last night, which is in the same building as South Austin Music, and I got to visit my sign. All is well; it is holding up marvelously.
