Zebra Wood Finish
I "think" the wood I made this sign out of is Zebra Wood. All I know is I LOVED carving this wood.
But, I need to finish it. The sign will be hung in our kitchen so no outside elements will be involved.
I have a couple questions:
1) Can I use acrylic paint to paint the carved out letters? I don't want to paint the wood, but the words are not legible unless you are standing in front of the sign.
2) What is the best finish to use? I've read that Tung Oil is good. But I have never used this. One guy says shellac. Again, I've never used this.
I'm hoping to get a nice finish that will last for a while before it needs touching up.
Any and all feedback is greatly appreciated.
I may not know what I'm doing, but I am having fun doing it wrong!!
Happy Day Veterans!!
