I have routered some signs and spray painted a coat of paint over the entire sign, then painted the routered letters, belt sanded the top of the sign, blew off with air and poly urethaned the sign. ????
I make FFA Officer name boards, I stain the entire thing after routering their name on the board. Then I paint their name in black gloss paint with a brush. Don't know if this helps or not.
God and family, the rest is icing on the cake.
I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place.
