I make small personal or novelty signs out of wood. Yes, I do take commissions. My sighs are drawn out with a pencil, I add ink to them, use a small hand-held machinery to each sign, and then I put a mixture on each carved sign for much better results.. After twenty-four hours of the pre-painting preparation, those signs are ready to be painted . I normally use acrylic / latex paints on them for quicker drying. Finally, I put the wire on top or in the backside or drill a hole for hanging depending on the style.
