What kind of paint would you recommend for an exterior carved sign? I want it to protect the wood and not fade.
Greg Williams: House paint, of the best quality.
Michael Dresdner: You’ve got loads of options, including the combination of any good exterior primer and any good exterior paint, such as acrylic exterior trim paint. One of the newest options, and in my opinion, one of the slickest, is Universal. It’s good for interior or exterior projects, does not require primer, and goes over any surface including raw wood and finished wood, plastic, metal, glass and concrete. It comes in an aerosol container with a comfortable trigger instead of an annoying button stem, and even sprays upside down.
