I need to make an outdoor address number sign. The tricky part is that it needs to be out in an area that’s very much exposed to bad weather. The sign needs to be close to the road out in an area in the country basically. I have been reading the forum to get ideas - acrylic, delrin, etc.
Here’s the scenario - A friend graciously allows us to keep my daughter’s Make-A-Wish camper on their property. It’s out in this little town where they own acreage. We are In Colorado, so extreme temp ranges.
The friend 's home is really hard to find in the dark. (lol don’t ask how I know). They tried to make a sign and had a string of lights or something around it (I can’t remember) but the first time we parked the camper there, I joked about making them a sign. I would LOVE to be able to surprise them with one. Our camper is currently being repaired for hail damage from a recent tornado out there, and I’d love to be able to bring them a gift when we take it back to to their property.
I was thinking of cutting giant acrylic numbers (maybe white acrylic?) and attaching them to wood or metal or something to put into the ground. But I don’t know!! This is not an area I specialize in. Any suggestions? Has anyone made anything similar to this?
I do have some good sealant called Crystalac Crab Coat that I can use if it will help. (Marine finish and UV protectant)
