TNT Blocks

I've clearly started something now and I was asked to make some TNT blocks, these blocks are predominantly red which leaves some issues for laser cutting. I could have used a red wood but the engraved areas would be a darker red, not the white colour required for the label. The solution was to mask a sheet of poplar and then paint key areas of it red, I used an airbrush to ensure that the colour didn't bleed under the masking. This gives me 3-4 different colours to use, all of the detailing was done with line artwork so that it stood out as a strong black.
