Styrofoam letter W.

Aachen Normal font.

150mm high, 50mm thick.

prototype for casting into a concrete letter.


Before we decide to cast a letter in concrete we make a prototype in styrofoam to see if the font needs adjusting and before we make a mould for casting in concrete. We might also do this if we intend casting in resin or Jesmonite.

As a project to practice on I think I shall use this letter as a base to make some more samples and paint them in various different finishes, concrete effect, stone effect, masonry effect, metal effect, wood effect or rusty metal effect or any other finish that I can think of such as bronze metal effect. These letters are a good base for covering in paper or card or decorating in glitter.

Concrete letters and numbers are a new project that we have been working on after a customer requested us to produce some for their business premises. We even purchased a domain name http://www.concretenumbers.co.uk  where we hope to develop a product to sell online. We made a small amount of numbers and letters in concrete but we found that they broke too easily and had to add an extra ingredient to make the characters much stronger and to make them frost resistant.
