The number 5 made from fastcast resin. The letter was first carved out of a dense foam in reverse, I removed the letter and kept the backing material, I then filled the backing material with the resin, when the resin had gone off hard I removed the cast letter and disposed of the one use mould. The result is a rustic looking cast resin letter. The texture is the result of the cell structure from the hand carved mould. This was an interesting project to do. There may be a market it if sold to interior designers or architects. The benefit of these letters is that they will not rust or rot and if fitted on a building they should last the life of the building.
I will probably continue to work on this method of producing 3D letters as I think they are a nice alternative to what is on the market.
We have completed a small number of jobs using this method of producing 3D letters, for florists, an art shop, tattoo shop and for a church where they were looking for something different and wanted the letters to last a long time.
