Re: mdo and paint questions

Andrew, MDO and Benjamin Moore Fresh Start Primer...good choice. I now paint 90% of my signwork with Benjamin Moore paints, also. Since you're looking for a matte finish, use the flat latex, holds up very well. Yes, you can gild on top. I've created several interior and exterior MDO signs with the e...

Two more signs are in the plans, I'll add here when completed. If you are ever in the area, give me not...

Re: new mural, with a bit of hand lettering

Hi Patrick,

Mural is painted on 1/2"MDO, benjamin moore interior latex and artist acrylics,
inside the community room of the Lodi Library.
The poplar wood frame was donated by a local custom woodworking company,
painted to match the darkest color I used in the mural.
