Arsenal of Democracy: Crappy Furniture
I saw this sitting in the rain so I broke it up and turned it into signs.
After tracing the letters with an overhead projector, I use two foam brushes and cheap black enamel, doing the thick lines first and the seraphs and curves with the smaller brush second. I find repetitive painting to be very relaxing, almost zen-like mixture of concentration and mindlessness.
Two or at most three hours of painting.
Or just pull over next to a roadsign and nail it up to the back. Takes ten seconds. See http://freewayblogger.blogspot.com/2005/12/using-signbacks.html
