The Making of a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame:Selena Quintanilla.

Brass Letters & Solder.

The star and letters are made of brass. Vince told me he has been doing this for a very long time and was honored to be the one to make this star, “anything for Selenas he joked as he soldered the letters on a brass road that spell out SELENA QUINTANILLA.

The red circle piece in the center is an emblem of a record, respectfully.

PINK TERRAZZO LIKE CAKE. They mix water with the terrazzo and and spread it all over the star like a sweet lady Jane cake. The star is covered with a plastic sheeting to protect it and he terrazzo is ground smooth, polished, and waxed to its final shining state.
