76 • March 2018 • S I G N & D I G I T A L G R A P H I C S ARCHITECTURAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL for mounting the parts of this logo to the wall, so in half the clear acrylic "dots," a hole was cut (also on the laser) that a small nail could just fit through. The most tedious part, though it was really not difficult to do, was counter-sinking one side of the clear "dots" holes, so the head of a nail would fit down flush into the surface of the spacer. Once a nail was in place in its slight recess, a "dot" with no hole was glued on top of the one holding the nail to finish making our individual "spacer/ stud holder." Making an inventory of these parts took 30 to 45 minutes, and The holes on the clear acrylic circles were countersunk slightly so the nail head would be flush and the parts could be glued together. The backs of some parts are shown with stud hardware glued in place, and the parts shown from the front are elevated off the table by their mounting hardware. These tiny glued-on stud items use a small cabinet nail and two tiny clear disks of 3/16" thick acrylic. The brushed gold finish catches the light better than a mirror gold version would. A touch up brush and clear acrylic glue was used to permanently adhere the mounting hardware to the backs of each logo element.
