Sign Making – ‘It’s a long ship’ Part 2

 

So this is part two of sign making (see part one here). Here I painted it using acrylic paint, first the actual letters and then the engraved sections. You do need to do a few layers of paint when using wood as a surface, so I did this over a few days. Before painting with standard satin wood varnish, I painted over the acrylic paint with Galleria Gloss Varnish. I did this to make sure the wood varnish did not dissolve my careful painting, once sealed with the acrylic varnish, the wood varnish did not affect the colours or finish. We will hang this up in the garden in Northern Cyprus in the BBQ area and raise a glass to Grandpa! I will be sure to share a picture of it when it is in situ.
