Default Custom badges? Sure. But why pay? NEW PICS pg 3

Some of you know I recently launched a new personal website and domain.

www.zillamotorsports.com

Harofreak was kind enough to work with me on a custom logo since I helped him a bit with his SC and TB, but I thought it would be fun to take it a step further.......

So I played around at work today for a few minutes with some acrylic and one of my lasers. Then came home and played with paint.

Long story shortened, Laser engrave in acrylic, then paint different colors front and back, wet-sand to expose what you want, touch up with red, and clearcoat.

These are just test pieces. I'm planning on doing more when I decide which I like the best.

Let me know which you like the best or what you'd do differently.

Made a bunch more blanks. Going for better paint tomorrow. Do 'em right, or go home.
