Hello everyone, thanks for the comments.
"What type of paint do you use?" Just used acrylic paint, i think the key is sealing the sign in between the "colour" and the stain coat so as you can get the wiped effect. I can see a few more of these signs coming in the future for man caves i think.
But the real burning question i think is pies!
New Zealand is fond of a good pie, we have national pie competitions to see who has the countries best pie. that might be a little difficult in the US i think.
We are a country of pie eaters, Steak, steak and cheese,pepper Steak, Mince and cheese, butter chicken, bacon and egg, chicken and Camembert and the list goes on. As you can see we are very savory in the way we have pies and you eat them with one hand as the other hand can then be used for holding your beer! hence the kiwi slang "lets go out for a pie and a pint".
Long live the pie!...... and we are far better than those Aussie pie eaters as we have a better meat v filling ratio, very important.
