How to seal stained wood sign

Pam uses Crystal Clear Spray Enamel by Rustoleum to seal her signs.  She gets right up a few inches away and sprays generously.  She likes the effect when the sealer pools.  It is hard to tell in the photo, but the sealer does darken things a bit and pulls the elements together, lending to an older look.

Here is the sign that greets you on the little red porch!

I had a blast and learned so much from documenting Pam's process.  Big special thanks to her for letting us do so! To see more of Pam's beautiful work, visit her on her blog:  Little Red Porch,

and on her facebook fan page:  Little Red Porch on Facebook

Let her know if you try out her tips, or if you would much rather just have her make a sign for you.  She does all kinds of super cool custom work as well.
