Re: Prepping wood for a barn sign?
Thanks guys! I'm not sure where I would purchase anything besides wood, but might be worth looking into if I get more interest in them. I thought that house paint would probably work best, the problem is I am hoping to do very detailed realistic pictures on them and I'm sure it would cost a fortune to buy as many colors as I'd want.
So far I just did one as a spur of the moment Christmas gift, but others who have seen it have asked me about doing more. I used acrylic paint, mostly cheap craft types stuff, and many of the colors I bought said specifically outdoor. I did spray a couple coats of sealer on it, but told them I'd keep it inside the barn to be safe.
It would be easiest for me just to paint future ones with the same acrylics, but wouldn't mind putting several coats of protective finish at the end, would the sealers/varnish mentioned above work over any type of paint?
