Default Engraving with Aluminum and resin

Have a friend who is a singer and recently changed her name to Lisa St. Lou.
This image instantly popped into my head and had to make it.

She doesn't know about it yet, but just had to show someone :)

Side note I had it a perfect mirror and just hated it.
2nd side note, aluminum is very difficult to get a good clear topcoat on.

Very nice work. I hate to tell you this, but when the stems of musical notes point downward, they should be on the left side of the note.

At one point I did stop to consider if those notes even made sense. She likes to try different things so I'm sure she will make up a new meaning for it :)

With any luck her masters in music didn't cover it !

I have not tried it but have heard good things. The price has always kept me away.
