One Humungous Duck Sign!
We made these Gold Leaf Signs for the Ruddy Duck Brewery in Solomon’s Island, Maryland. This original sign-making project was interesting, for sure. Without a double, we have never made any other signs like this one. If you have ever driven north on Rt.4, leaving Solomon’s Island, you’ve probably seen the Ruddy Duck. Certainly, this duck is one giant duck!

Gold leaf at The Ruddy Duck Brewery & Grill in Solomons, MD. This sandblasted sign was designed, fabricated, and installed by Designs & Signs. We produced the humungous duck with a CNC routed which cuts the overall shape from HDU, high-density urethane. We also routed the large pin-mounted letters from half-inch white komacel, then painted and finished with gold leaf. Next, we sandblasted the rider sign, and as always, we covered all of the raised letters with 23 karat gold leaf. Finally, we gently press the gold leaf onto the slow drying size as it begins to feel tacky. The correct timing during this part of the process is always critical. If we lay the leaf too soon, it will not stick as the size will still be too wet. Likewise, If we wait too long before placing the gold, it will not stick because the measure would be too dry.
