Default This is sign is for the birds

I was bored today and needed something to do in the shop so I decided it was time to make a sign and test some new ideas. The leaf and bird along with the text were carved with a 60º bit and an SC50 bit used for the detail of the leaf and bird. The color was an experiment which turned out okay for this sign. They are acrylic paints that were applied with an airbrush.
