A close friend recently approached me with a problem. She has been able to acquire a vintage hand lettered sign that hung on the front of the neighborhood general store during her childhood. She's still uncertain whether she should preserve it in its natural weathered condition or try to refurbish it to make it look like new again. My advice is to preserve it in the condition it's in now. That being said, I was told years ago by a 1-Shot rep that you shouldn't cover their paint with anything because the coating will eventually yellow and/or crack. Does anyone have advice as to how she can display this MDO plywood sign outdoors, yet preserve it in its natural state for as long as possible?
