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!!

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!

Sylva, was the guitar mosaic, the blue one, done on a real guitar? It is just gorgeous!!


 o
RE: South Austin Music sign finished!

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.

ooOOO its down low. it would be fun to set up a camara to film how many customers feel the urge to touch it! lol

looks great!!!


 o
RE: South Austin Music sign finished!

WhooHoo! It Looks Fabulous!!!! You must feel such a sense of accomplishment!!!


 o
RE: South Austin Music sign finished!

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.


 o
RE: South Austin Music sign finished!

That's probably one of my favorite pieces I've seen so far on here


 o
RE: South Austin Music sign finished!

Thanks, idrive.

RE: South Austin Music sign finished!

RE: South Austin Music sign finished!

I did see that! I also noticed that a certain frog pond is on the first page also. It's great, isn't it?


 o
RE: South Austin Music sign finished!

LOL yeah but we're all going to be overwhelmed by that danged amazing jar of pickles!!!!


 o
RE: South Austin Music sign finished!

I finally found the pic. I wasn't sure where the first link took me . DUH . That is just amazing ! It's HUGE !!!!
How did you reach the middle ? -- LOL That is sure impressive :) Great Job !


 o
RE: South Austin Music sign finished!

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!


 o
RE: South Austin Music sign finished!

I hadn't realized how BIG it is. What a huge job. I hope they paid you handsomely.


 o
RE: South Austin Music sign finished!

pickles are long gone now... and YOU are in 1st!


 o
RE: South Austin Music sign finished!

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.


 o
RE: South Austin Music sign finished!

I am just amazed by this piece. Spectacular.


 o
RE: South Austin Music sign finished!

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.
