There's always really cool paintings in there, along with statues, posters, books. There's always a thing or two that I'd love to buy... If I had the money!
This time around, I noticed a miniature classic Disneyland sign:
On the way back to our hotel room, I passed the guy who has a booth right on harbor blvd, where he sells family name signs. I then got the idea: why not do a mashup, and create a family sign for the wall... In the style of that Disneyland sign?
I took a trip to Lowes and Michaels after we returned home, buying thin pieces of basswood for a sign that would be 24 inches wide when done. I then approximated the relative dimensions and cut the necessary number of letterboxes. I had to sit down and do some plotting in order to figure out how it would all layer together.
I painted this with craft paint on gesso, and when done i coated it all with krylon crystal clear gloss.
Of course, the original park sign had flags, so I gave each member of the family a flag of their own.
