Default cedar sealer

Looking for suggestions as to a readily available product to seal, protect, and enhance the grain in the cedar signs I am carving freehand with a router.
Am I correct in assuming that any added painting to the signs is to be done after the cedar is sealed?
Thank you kindly

welcome to the forum, Don.

Do you mean to paint or stain the sign? I don't think paint will enhance the grain?

James; I think Don was referring to the lettering on the sign regarding the paint, not the sign background.
Good question though. If Don applies paint to routed lettering, practically speaking the letter areas should be primed, so why not seal the whole sign first? That'd reduce the paint edge bleeding as well as make it a lot easier to clean up any unforeseen blips.

Sealer: I it were mine, I would use Sikkens Cetol 1. Great product for protecting Cedar, not sure about painting over it though, you can check on their web site Exteriors | Sikkens

What I have found that works with me in the sign Making is to rout the letters or numbers first,then seal it (both sides ) Then give a coat of MINWAZ HELMS SPAR URETHANE CLEAR SATIN.Then paint the routed letters,or numbers With Latex paint,then sand off,thaen give the whole thing another coat or 2 Of the Miwax..Works well for ..Good Luck...Nures B
