This block wall sign was done for a
local company and we were to match the wall with the detail of the
building...there was an indent that ran around the edge of this
building. So here you go from foundation to completion.
Smaller 6" block was used for the
indentation part of the detail...the mason and I fashioned a jig tool to
make the beveled edges for the groove that ran around the bottom edge of
The wall was then primed prior to
the sprayed stucco. I used a hopper (rented it from the rental store)
that help me spray the textured Dryvit system onto the wall. When the
wall was dry I painted the special match color the beveled groove.
After all the painting and texture
was applied the pattern for the
Gemini Letters was tapped up into place. I taped it onto the wall
using the duct tape all around except for the bottom to let the dust
from the drilling fall through. Drilled the holes and place the
lettering and border in there proper place. I used an exterior clear
silicone sealant 3m brand for windows and doors to glue the letters in.
