Impressive work Down Under

After reading a feature article about Danthonia Designs in July/Aug SignCraft, I looked up their site http://www.danthoniadesigns.com.au/aboutus.htm

You will see some beautiful dimensional work in HD urethane board. Does anyone else have any experience using this?

Gray,

There are some pictures and a few words from myself about the material in the past thread titled gorilla glue from the states! Fellow statesmen Pierre has a few words about the “schtuff” as well. Pierre probably has more working experience with the material then anybody else that I’m aware of. Should be a good source if you have any specific questions and he can afford the time.

Thank you both for the links.
There is some truly unbelievable work out there.
This is an eye opener I can tell you. :o

A little over my head but amazing none the less!

Hi Gray
Sorry for not replying to this post but I seem to have missed it...
yeh! I saw those pics in the mag... Excellent stuff... Im delighted you posted the link as I have just book marked it for a closer look later.
The europhane board is amazing stuff & so easy to work with.
I have very little knowledge of the product as we rarely get the chance to quote for it.
With work like bob posted and the type of stuff Pierre does I reckon its a must move from the wood carving days. Even though I do think woodcarvings varnished look awesome.
i have a few sheets of the board in stock and i keep promising do try somthing with it for posting on the boards. a kind of rookies guide to using the stuff.. :lol: :lol: :lol:

anyway i could rabble on here as this type of work really makes me want to whip out the carving tools and make a mess of somthing...anything. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Bit over my head too Sally. Rob I've not had any experience with carving by hand but the idea does make me think about a computerised router.
Trouble is, the darn things cost so much, and in our small area I doubt whether it would pay for itself.

Still, food for thought.

I have been in touch with them and have recieved an invitation to visit and have a look around. The distance is the equivelant of travelling from Liverpool to the west coat of Ireland, but next time I'm in NSW I will get to see them.

i do have a short demo up my sleeve gray.. so check back pretty soon and ill show you a couple of things i learnt back in Nam! :wink:
as for the router.. yeh your right play it safe. its a brill thing to have but it must pay for itself. 15 thousand for a half decent one. you have to go into a new market to make work pay that kind of cash... same thing with digi printing... waite and see what i mean in my demo i think it may get some ideas rolling in your head mate... :)
