    Hello

    I have a polished stone house sign (not sure what type of stone) with carved lettering. I wish to paint the lettering white so it can be seen from the road. Can you offer any advice please? The research I've done says an enamel paint is traditional - it's that like the tiny tins of Humbrol model paint I used as a kid?

    Thanks

    Yes
    Have a piece of cloth that's soaked in solvent handy so you can wipe off any that gets on the main slab
