Default Marsh spray ink?

I have not heard of this before. What are the advantages of using ink on signs?

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

waterproof, very permanent and expensive...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

It's not too expensive, the Dave Rhoten sign making videos use ink instead of paint for laying out their signs because it dries quick and doesn't soak too far into the wood

Both. You can use it to lay out the sign and then color the carved area after routing. The ink dries a little faster than paint but I find myself using them interchangeably. The ink tends to be a little thinner than the paint and has less chance of laying on too thick a coat. The downside is the expense.

Given that ink is not as thick as paint would it not seep beyond the intended boundaries ?

The ink does not run like most paints. Therefore it doesn't seep into most woods like paint.

The Rhotens made the change to a paint by Rust Oleum called 2X Black Primer.....for cost savings. They still use the Marsh Ink occasionally.

I have never used the Marsh ink.....only black spray paint and the 2X black primer. I love the black primer. I akso use the 2X Glossy Clear acrylic for a finish.

Gotta love that Glossy Clear - that's what I use when there's too much detail to brush on Poly or Spar. The smell sucks til it dries, but it's som good stuff.
