Sign details

Wayne,

I just used what I had in the cupboard.. I used some Kilz primer sealer 3 coats so I could sand flaws, then I used some Painters Touch acrylic/latex (Green), the for the gold I used acrylic/latex that my sons and I bought at Micheals for anouther project, then topped it all off with a couple coats of clear.

Here's a tip - when doing a foam sign don't let anyone near it untill you have a hard coat on it.. you can see a couple of finger dents on my sign because the boys and the neighbors had to test it to see if it was actually foam..
