Sandblasted signs

Sandblasting is a very effective way to create a textured 3-D surface. It is more affordable than a hand-carved sign. When I sandblast wood this will accentuate the grain and this makes an organic looking product. Sandblasted medex board results in a rough pebbly kind of background such as the sign at the A Mano restaurant in Santa Fe.

"a mano" translates to "by hand" in Italian. The sign at this restaurant is sandblasted medex, the hands are painted in oils and letters individually cut and affixed.
