Repainting a Sign with S/W Resilience paint
 
I am repainting a composite sign.
I Primed with 3 coats of S/W Multi Purpose latex Paint, B51W8020.
Top coat 3 coats of Resilience ext acrylic latex Paint,K43T54.
All coats have min.of 24hrs between coats.
I must do the lettering on top of the Resilience.
I am using green and gold.
What is the best paint to use for the Lettering oil or Acrylic?
Is ''one Shot'' good on top the Resilience paint?
Thank you,
Theartbrush

To answer your question directly, although the paint is solvent based it is actually an alkyd enamel product so will work well over the base you have laid down. Alkyd is a rather universal problem solver and sticks to most anything. Most anything can be painted over it as well. I would check for a manufacture or expiration date to be safe!

"1 Shot" is what most pro sign painters I know use. As you probably know it is designed for lettering, pinstriping and so forth and is nice because it will not "crawl" on you. It comes in a rainbow of colors and they mix well together to get just about anything in between. There are several green hues and I forget how many gold ones. Obviously the metallic color chart would be irrelevant on a computer screen so look in the store. You can get 1 Shot in small containers too which is nice.
