I've just routed some pine for trail markers, I'd like to stain them a darker brown and paint in the lettering with yellow. Much like a state park sign would look. What would be a good finish for outdoors that will help them to last? I live in the north east, so we'll be getting bitter cold, snow, rain, some sun on occasion.....
Any advice would be appreciated, I don't do much outdoor work. I know in the photo that they are painted, (maybe I'd be better off painting them(?), but I'd like to stain them.
I have done several of these types of signs using 2x6 cedar boards glued up. I use the "official" colors from the US Forestry that can be found in a 700 page pdf file with dimensions and specs. I had my paint mixed at a local Ace Hardware store.
