Hi,
I spend a good deal of my time volunteering at the local community garden. They mentioned they would like some vegetable signs so I set to work.
I sealed the plywood with full strength Bondcrete back front and sides 2 coats. Did some printed art on paper and used a water-based wood glue to apply that to the plywood. I then painted over the paper art and the sealed again with bondcrete and a varnish.

I was sooo pleased with myself until I put the pieces out in the weather where within one rain event. it was all destroyed...
Can some one please correct my procedure.

Kindest regards
Susan
