Just ask ,I'm always to share what I know if it helps.I have a real nice Badger Air brush. I just don't have any skill with it. I used to sell Model Railroad stuff on EBAY years ago. I am still registeres as Arcticfox46. I had an account with a hobby distribution warehouse. I don't do that anymore but I do have a huge inventory left ofer. I will be selling that inventory soon.
I will look into Createx.
Ben Moore Aura is an excellent paint, but I am open to new things
I am also open to suggestions from a true artist.
Dave, I don't use wood on these signs. HDU is impervious to weather and designed specifically for signs. It does not swell, shrink or crack. It is a very stable material.Leo, the considerations of Wood (soft) material verses HDU. Createx was created to work with wood flexing under weather conditions. I'd found the harder urethane's work best with medals, hard plastics and proper primers.
Another problem I see is the use of bondo, on wood. It will eventually case the finish to pop from the wood at the meeting point. I'd stay clear from it.
My friend Jeff who restores many of the old signs, dinosaurs and attraction parks exc. in OC Md. Has been using the product for many years with longevity results.
