KDF Studio Sign

Here is a fun little internal project of us creating our studio sign. We wanted something a little different than the average sign so we went with a free standing “tree on wheels”.  Oh boy this is going to be interesting.

The first step is to create the structure of the tree. We’ll be applying cement as the material then carving it in place. The structure has to be pretty strong to hold all of that cement.

Brian can be seen here welding up the armature with steel rods.

Once its all welded together the structure is then covered in wire lathe to accept the cement mix.

Its a nice day out so we’ll sculpt outside. Might even get a tan.

First we have to get the cement mixed just right.
