I got to do the coolest job a couple weeks ago! Two windows for an optical shop in Bellevue.
The outer border is antiqued gold leaf, the lettering is metallic red. Both done in reverse on the inside of the glass and sealed so the glass can be cleaned.
Finished product (left window)
Before: left window
Before: right window
During: right window with the masking still up
My good college bud, Tami Szerlip, helped me put up the masking. Much easier with four hands and two brains!
If you're in the neighborhood and want to see it in real life, the address is 10204 Main Street, Bellevue, WA. I got some really cute glasses there. Oh, and some sunglasses. I'm set!
Website here (unfortunately pics on website were taken before the windows were done), Facebook site here.) Lorali is super knowledgeable and very professional. The selection of frames is marvelous! There's a great eye doctor there, too, so you can maximize your time.
Lorali has two Poodles and a Papillon. The dogs get to go to work in rotation, so one is at the shop and two are home keeping each other company. What a fun place to work!
