At work they asked if I could help with the “awards” for some 20 yr anniversary employees. They ordered the UPS metal (old fashion) trucks and originally asked if I could engrave on them. They wouldn’t fit in the and I didn’t want to risk sandblasting (still a hobby - glasses are easy to replace - they only had the 6 of these). Instead I suggested a base of some sort that I could engrave or do something with - they liked that idea. Anyways, this is what i came up with
The quarter for scale. The base is 0.5 inch clear acrylic (Basic cut it like butter !!) with the tire divots engraved , then clear acrylic for the “arch”. Two-color (black and white) for the circular sign. The alorica was from 3 different colored acrylic (plus a black piece behind). Was satisfying to cut the little letters out of blue and pop them into the white . Originally I had some brown acrylic that I engraved the circular with, then painted the engraving yellow, but couldn’t get it to look as “clean” as the two color acrylic.
The names were just engraved and then acrylic paint wiped into the engraving - a piece of white acrylic behind the name to make it easier to see. Some clear rubber feet and done…
They seemed pleased (thanks )
