Occasionally with the right client a couple of sketches at the breakfast table can turn into nice restroom signs by mid afternoon. More fun to come tomorrow with a gold door sign in the works. @paddyspdx #goldleafsigns #handpaintedsigns #handdrawnletters

23karat birth glass panel to celebrate the new life of Lena. @thedebonairsignman this design is inspired by your layout of the workshop piece, because the client really likes that one. Added the flag of Brabant and Amsterdam to show her parents roots:)

A few months ago I was referred to a barber in Ybor City interested in having his storefront gilded. I met with Johnny to discuss his vision and proceeded to draft sketches for his approval. We agreed on a lettering style and to use genuine 23k gold leaf for the job. This can be a costly endeavor however Johnny was sure that if we were to do it, he didn’t want to cut any corners. I prepared the patterns and purchased the materials necessary to start the project a few weeks back. I was pretty concerned when I received no response from him on the day we had planned to start. It’s pretty unusual to get so far along with the process and for the client to back out. Unfortunately, it was not by choice. Johnny’s wife soon reached out to inform me that Johnny had passed away in motorcycle accident on his way to work. Although Johnny and I had only met a handful of times, this news has weighed heavy on me. Fortunately, with the help of his wife, fellow barbers and friends, they have decided to keep the barbershop open and to proceed with the arrangements he had made. I had prepared this sample for him based off of the sketches that he had chosen though he never had the chance to see it. Needless to say, I intend fully on completing the job to his specifications and began working on site yesterday evening. My heart goes out to his family and friends and I am honored to be working towards turning his vision into a reality. Here’s to you Johnny 🖤 •

Getting there! The gold is much easier to work with. It also looks much better without a flash, but ya know...that's what happens when you get a second wind at 1am.

I'm making these with a double sided chalkboard, so they have multiple uses, besides winter decorations. Don't we always need to believe in the magic? Can't we always feel like that? Why just at Christmas?

And the last thing we need is more clutter, sitting in a box, to use once a year. What are some other ways that you can minimize your Christmas clutter? Any cozy, minimalist Christmas ideas?

Wait until you see what I'm putting on my next re-purposed window. I'll give you a hint..it's a quote from Dr Seuss, which I'm probably not supposed to be using 🤔 anyone know how to get permission to use copyrighted quotes? 
These two signs will be on sale in my shop above ☝, as well as custom orders for the holidays. Get yours in, before they fill up. Last order in by midnight December 15th.

Another @sidecardoughnuts project gilded and ready (almost) to open for business in Del Mar California!

Gilded using @seppleaf & @wbgoldleaf and @flyingsquirrelbrushco gilding products. Burnished with @chicagoldfather’s sweet burnishing pad and man, it’s such a good little tool.

Special thanks to @rltgold for putting me up and putting up with me!

If we have met in person, you have most likely seen my now beat up stainless steel water bottle that I bring with me wherever I go. Hi, my name is Steve, and I’m addicted to Simpson Spring water!

If you are able to stop in sometime, go the marketplace on Saturday and get a tour of the spring. You won’t believe how good the water tastes! Stop by and tell Chris and her family I said hello 👋 You won’t find nicer, more hard working people who genuinely care about the community and supporting each other. 
I love to support local businesses whenever I can, and when I saw some old signs they had, I decided to make a Jade Sign version -with gold leaf of course. 
Don’t forget to stop by your local businesses! You never know what you might find!

Instagram waits for no man and post hiatus, I return with a new business name and website.

I'm Barry Robertson. I make signs. Robertsign - Genius.

Featuring a project from two summers ago, these three weather-beaten, 70yr old clocks were removed from Auchenblae Church tower, in the north east of Scotland.

Shotblasted, sanded, painted, lettered and eventually gilded with 23k gold leaf, then re-installed for time at the top.

Visit my new website in my profile to find out more.

Decided to finally clean out my center console after 4 years. They always say, “Keep your receipts “. Some of the better finds include: sunglasses, Starbucks gift card, toys r us gift card, $2, colossal media carpenter pencil, Nick Barber business card, an iPhone, Bluetooth headphones and my wife’s spare car keys. Wonder what the next 4 will bring. #handpainted #handpaintedsigns #signs #signpainting #handlettering #ocsignpainter #paintagesvinyldies #1shot #lettering #signgraphics #walldog #showcard #shocard #windowsplash #goldleaf #goldleafsigns #goldleafglasssigns #tattoosign #signpainter #murals

Backpainted mirror for Italian style coffee bar. The steam from the coffee cup was created by sandblasting on the front of the glass.

Deep in thought, probably thinking about food, when and where it will be consumed and what hurdles lie between me and it's consumption.....lovely photos taken by the very talented @andsonsuk. There was smoke blowing into the workshop and over the glass on the day we gilded this piece which in normal circumstances we couldnt work in, I was expecting to have to clean it off and regild it after everyone had left but the result is actually a beautiful antique aesthetic, it looks really authentically old! ... A happy accident that I think I'd struggle to recreate if I tried!!! #goldleaf #gilding #reverseglassgilding #traditionalsignwriting #signpainting #signwriting #evesham #workshop #cheltenham #handlettering #goldleafsigns

New cards. First time in 15 years or more. Does anyone even use them anymore? The rest are in reverse order to my first card I had around 1982 a folding card with the reverse blue inside. I did about 10 years of photo retouching with gouche and dyes, sable and Paasche V airbrush. Worked at a few really cool places but mostly on my own doing signs. Ten years of theatre, some film and TV. Scenic and props. Plus traveling 90,000 km’s a year to paint sports and scholastic graphics in school gyms and lobbies all over the province. Ottawa Gee Gees to elementary schools in the country.. I’ve been everywhere boy! Lots of fun  #orilliarecreationcentre  #sportsgraphics #traditionalsignpainting #traditionalsignwriting #orillia #downtownorillia #signsorillia
