    Nice. I like the offset. Cool idea.

    Did you manually node edit all the letter connections? What did you use for spacers between layers? Is that rusted or painted brown and rubbed? Looks good.

    Turned out nice. Good use of the drop.

    I just noticed the missing dot on the i. Nice illusion.

    No manual editing, I imported a black and white graphic, I used #6 nutzert for the spacers then I countersunk #6 pan head screws, I created the rust with the following procedure:

    Mixed muratic acid in a 10% solution with water
    I wiped my piece with thinner to clean any oil off
    I sprayed the acid solution with a spray bottle outside, no wind, gloves a must, mask and eye protection in case of a gust of wind
    Wait 24 hours
    Rinse with water to neutralize the acid, and I hit it with a streight stream to make it look irregular
    Let air dry
    Clear coat with high gloss from a can
    That's it.
