Default Signs Made from Scrap Materials...

so I just finished a tile project, and had a couple tiles left over, can't return them so I figured I would make a few signs with them. nibbled the edges and put a couple coats of clear to give some depth.....

Good use of leftovers. One nice thing about signs, you can always make one out of scrap or extra material.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

Now those are some salable signs. Need the first one for my shop. I like the nibbled edges too.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

How did you do the lettering and graphics? Is that vinyl with a clear coat to protect?
