Red face Two More Done..

Here's another two of the four or five I did last weekend. I have a couple I'm itchin' to get at with the router, but I have to do some sizing of the wood, first.

Ken had a hard time with the paint bleeding. They can still be sold, are going into the "For Sale" Bin, and hopefully, I can get out to the shed next weekend to do some cutting. Didn't get out there this weekend; yesterday was a busy day, and today we didn't get home till almost six o'clock. (That's a post for another day, which I will share later in the week... ) This whole week is gonna be a busy one for us. (Again, a post for another day, that I will share later this week)

But here's a couple I played with last weekend, and Ken (as usual) did my paint and poly.

Barb,

What kind of paint are you using?

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

We've used 2x cover Rust-oleum primer paint and the other was fusion flat black by Krylon. These two are new to us. We've also used Marsh Ink. Ken says he's still trying to find the right one for us. He's been watching You Tube this Winter, and wanting to try what others have said work well. Personally, I think Ken and I both got over zealous and forgot to sand the wood with a high grit sandpaper to make the paint come off easier. We had this problem before a long time ago. We cured it by sanding with like 220 or so, then used wood conditioner, so the wood wouldn't be so porous, but I think we forgot a step here, or we didn't let the wood conditioner dry long enough before he painted it.

He also used the oil-based varathane spar urethane, but was really disappointed with it. It left the wood feeling rubbery; didn't feel right, and didn't give the shine he was expecting. He said he's going back to the Helmsman high gloss that we've used for so long.

Hi Barb, the welcome sign with heart /fish hooks is my favorite.I reckon you could sell a bundle of those. James.

Marsh ink looks exactly like sprayed ink. Plus it bleeds all over the place. I don't like it at all.
I bought a case and have 3 or 4 cans left I think. Use acrylic paint. Most any will do. The spray stuff is expensive but Wal Mart has bottles of it really cheap. 1/2 the price of Michael's. You'll have to brush it but to me the extra time is worth it, and you get pretty good at it after a while. Less mess, less bleeding, and the excess sands off pretty good. $2 and change for 8 oz. Water clean up.

I've used that paint for a long time. Takes too long to sit there and paint everything. I'm looking to cut time on my signs John. But thanks for the recommendation.

Thank you, James, Graham, Herb and Ross. Not my best... especially with the paint issue Ken had, but hopefully the weather will break, and we can actually get out there and figure out the best routine for us to kick these out quickly, with some quality to go with them.
