On big projects like this one (37" across) I just brushed over the text with Zinser shellac and used acrylic paint, sanded, and stained.

On the smaller signs I use mask and acrylic paint - brushed on. Acrylic paint doesn't bleed much and sands right off. I've found that brushing instead of spraying, although more time consuming, leaves less to clean up, and looks better, especially in wood with rough grain. I've tried the Marsh Ink - but I think it looks like sprayed on ink.

Just my opinion. But I'm not paying anyone either, so time doesn't mean as much.
