Here is a South-Western wood sign in my new series of hand-routed signs. This pine plaque features outset and inset letters and designs. I have added real tacks to the carved horseshoe to give it a truly authentic look. The background is stained with "gunstock" color stain, and then accented with acrylic aqua, barn red, gun metal and vanilla colors. The piece is sealed with two good coats of indoor/outdoor Krylon clear. It weighs 1 lb 10 oz.
