Great old sign, but it needed a little something.
What it needed was a cool background. Plus, I was dying to paint those frosty looking letters. 
The completed background.
Love those frosty letters.

I enhanced this cool 1950's metal soda sign by building a plywood background to mount it on. The icicle fonts are replicated from the graphics found on old ice cube vending machines. The background was hand painted and distressed.

They tell us what they drank...where they went...what to think, where they lived..what they ate and what they bought. Think about it. Words. Words teach us a lot and they let us remember. And I'm glad there's people like you around that care enough to keep the artistry alive. We can't give up. Posted: 11:07 am on November 15th
