    That's awesome! Thanks for sharing.

    2 questions, though: What kind of ink did you use? And what did you use to seal it?

    Ahhhh…I see. I've been looking for something to seal or clear coat with when using water based inks. I've been too lazy/busy to do too much looking around, and too scared to actually try anything on the few pieces on wood I've already done. I have this nasty suspicion that most sealants will just eat through Speedball in the process…

    ask andymac, he's down with that shiz. but i think using a regular cheap sealant before hand and then a spray on clear coat would be fine.

    Most of my stuff is printed on wood with water based house paints and I seal it with Minwax Polycrylic . I have never had any problems at all. You can brush it on,thin it with water and rub it on and I have even printed with it. Low odor and water clean up.

    Thanks TWOFOUR! I'll have to give that stuff a try. I hadn't even thought to ask you…considering how much awesome stuff you print on wood.

    I printed a wood sign for our shop a few weeks ago. Used speedball black and sealed it with Rustoleum clear gloss. Its rained a few times since and it looks the same. I clear coated it about 5 times though.
