Larry wants his sign to be outside so I used exterior varnish that protects against uv rays, changes in temperature, etc. But it doesn't dry quickly.
I've put three coats on the front. Meanwhile I've been organizing, cleaning, etc., waiting for it to be dry enough to get another coat.
I decided to paint the wall paper table I'm using. It will be dry enough to turn over and start on the the three coats of varnish for the back tomorrow. I can paint the part that's under the sign then.
