As I mentioned, I’m fixing a business sign that’s vinyl lettering are peeling away from the plywood. Since I’m using a new sheet of pine plywood, I’d like to know what sort of preparations should be done first to ensure that it’ll stand up to the elements and time. It’s definitely a budget job so keeping expenses down is priority. The lettering will be done from stencils cut from acetate sheets and will be painted with black spray paint on a white background then finished with some sort of weather resistant clear coat. What should I use for a primer layer so that it’ll have a nice surface for spray painting? After applying a primer, I will paint black rectangles where the text will be and then lay down stencils (after drying) then paint over them with a couple layers of white. Remove stencils and hope it looks good. I’m heading out rite now to finish getting materials so any suggestions would be great! Even if it means telling me that I’m going about it all wrong! Thanx!
