    Hello All,

    A friend asked me to paint his business logo onto a 4x8 board. Since this will be an outdoor sign, I need to protect it from the elements. Can anyone tell me what I could apply on the wood to make sure that it will be thoroughly protected from rain/snow?

    For the nth time, go to a sign supply place (in person or online ) like N Glantz.
    Buy yourself some aluminum composite to use as the sign.
    Then hand-letter using Ronan lettering enamel and a brown sqirrel quill (both also from the sign supplier) or even oil-based Rustoluem and a 1" foam brush.
    People will suggest using 1-Shot lettering enamel...don't bother.
    There is no need to topcoat if you use the right materials for the job.
