Yep, want inexpensive, and doesn't dry amber. Otherwise I'd just use Titebond II thinned down. Several coats of that would work. This is for a project (house signs, with numbers), that will be for me, so not going with top quality stuff. If I were going to sell them (may later) would go with something a bit better quality most likely. But these will be out for a few weeks, then changed out for another sign, and so on. So it really won't matter if the finish won't last a year even, I'll have plenty of time to refinish them. At $11+ a gallon I am comfortable with experimenting with it. At $15+ a quart, not so comfortable - at that price it had darn well better work, and work well. It's the fact that I will have to get this from Home Depot, and I do NOT like Home Depot, that I don't like. Hmm, just recalled, Titebond has a clear glue. Might just call them and see if that would do what I want - that's how I got started using thinned Titebond II as a finish coat for a lot of my projects, including my canes - which are carried in the back of my pickup, in the open air, rain or sunshine. Holds up well.
