I have a client who wants a v carved sign for outside. It is under an awning but generally exposed to cold/hot weather. it is attached to a gazebo like structure that is stained dark. .
They want the sign stained dark ( yellow pine ) with white lettering. I was going to stain it with Benjamin moore arborcoat exterior stain , then oramask on top. then spray the letters with water based exterior poly ( general finishes 450 ) then spray the letters white with an exterior white latex paint. No sealer over that.
I have never made an exterior sign so I don’t know what to expect. These materials were recommend to me from the paint store but I wanted to confirm with a sign maker if possible. I really hope it doesn’t peel right away ! Thanks in advance !
