Experimental tiny sign

I’ve been doing some logo/sign design work for a client and wanted to create a 3D visual of one of the ideas - all atomic age themed. The client sells re-manufactured signs, paraphernalia and all sorts of ‘retro’ items.
Having a Glowforge makes creating little models very easy! It’s all made from 2mm mountboard, painted with acrylics. The second picture shows my glasses for scale.

I like the irony that it’s a retro sign made with thoroughly modern techniques.

I keep coming back to look at this becasue it’s so cool. The colors are just perfect. How did you do the little white lines in the lettering?

Thanks kittski, those white lines are laser cut white paper. I just stuck them on the same as all the other parts, with white glue.

Update - having shown my customer the model mock-up, he’s asked me to make two full size versions (3’ wide) for his stall. Having had a quick measure, I believe I can use the glowforge to cut the components for that too, all except the blue background. That project will become a video that I’ll share when the signs are installed.
