Day 5 of Vinyl

So I wanted to talk about subway art today.

It’s my mom’s 54th birthday May 25th. Her favorite song is you are my sunshine. I wanted to do some vinyl work with the lyrics. I also wanted it subway art style. Instead of spending hours placing the lyrics and changing up fonts, I found a site that lets you pick a shape, or upload your own. Enter all the words and it randomizing it.

I wanted a sun so I Googled sun and clip art. I found this picture.

Next, I entered the lyrics.

Press Load and paste a copy of the lyrics or the words you want to use.

You can select a theme to change the colors that are used. This was the once one that popped up that I thought I could easily trace.

I clicked on save and saved the LARGEST PNG.

In the previous tutorial, I discussed how to trace a image using Inkscape, please follow along here.

I saved as an .EPS and opened in signblazer, ready to rumble.

I found an old frame I had lying around the house and got to work.

I removed the backing and the mat, and cleaned the glass. I printed my sign in a 18″ by 20″ piece of Oracal 651 Yellow.

Now there were words that were TINY, I started slowly weeding and if the word was a bear and little pieces were pulling off I just pulled the entire word.

I used my large sized application tape and transferred straight to the top of the glass. I folded the metal clips back to secure the glass but did not replace the mat or backing.

Finished Product
