Re: Sign Painting / lettering without fumes?

the line for "Prayer Meeting" looked so much better BEFORE my daughter said "Mom, you forgot to add the Sunday Evening service..." That was right before she asked me if I knew I had painted the Sunday morning services with the letters PM after their times. ;) Like I said, or should have said, I don'...

Re: Sign Painting / lettering without fumes?

THANK you for the feedback. You're right about the need to practice hand-lettering alphabets. In fact, when I realized I'd been semi-volunteered to do this, and with a really short deadline (they're having a revival tomorrow and need their sign back up), I had to run to the library and get some call...

here are some pictures, one of their old sign (blurry, sorry) and one of what I'm painting, almost done.

Re: Lincoln Highway mural number 25 - Lynwood, IL

Nice work --- a little intimidating. I think I'll stick to painting things somewhat smaller and funkier (not sure how you all get such precision with your lines)... but it's nice to see that others can do it.

Re: Sign Painting / lettering without fumes?

excellent advice. I'm so glad I found this forum before progressing too far on the sign. I'll post pictures when I'm done. Definitely plan to do more signs, if anyone asks, because I'm really enjoying working at this size (years back I used to paint miniatures - then my eyesight stopped cooperating)...

Re: Sign Painting / lettering without fumes?

Thanks, Danny --- excellent feedback and just what I need. The recipient of the sign had just told me, this morning, no problem, use what you have (I had mentioned my fine-art acrylics to him) and I'll put a few coats of varnish on it when I pick it up. Nice to know that's not an option - so I'll re...

Sign Painting / lettering without fumes?

I'm currently doing someone a favor and painting an outdoor sign ---- not my usual surface to paint on, but it's fun. Problem is, I'm sensitive to chemical fumes, really sensitive, and don't use oil paints or anything with that toxic smell. I picked up some exterior/interior type latex enamel paint ...
