How do you waterproof and protect painted signs from the elements? I use the poster paints, which are washable, but when the rain hits them they run.

I sometimes purchase signs that are not specifically made for outside use. I used clear marine varnish(like you would use on a boat) on a wooden flag, it made the flag look "aged" and it lasted a lot longer than it would have without it.
