Video of the Week: Doing 3D European Style

Tony Kindelspire is digital content editor of Sign & Digital Graphics & WRAPS magazines.

This video comes to us all the way from Amsterdam, where Eric Winkler owns a shop called Schitterend Glass Art and Gilding (“Schitterend,” in Dutch, means “beautiful.”) Born in 1972, Winkler obviously has a taste for the old ways of sign making and here, demonstrates how he crafts an elaborate 3D wooden sign using various techniques, including sandblasting, handpainting, gilding and gluechipping.
