    Without knowing the size or use it's hard to help but my gut says you should be cutting a master and having it molded and mass produced. There are a bunch of different types of waxes that machine...

    The first thing to mention is, this process depends heavily on what kind of paint you use. Some paints dry faster. Some paints stick better. Some paints go on smoother. I've found this process...

    Given the fact you don't have masking, I would definitely recommend not spraying the paint for the letters. You absolutely want to use a brush to minimize the mess. Cleaning up spray paint means...
