Default Re: Painting lettering on old knobs

I managed to varnish the Letraset lettering (on red car body paint) of an audio mixer that my son (not me!) built for a school GSCE project a couple of decades ago. I can't recall whether we used clear nail varnish or Humbrol paint varnish. In the lab at Plessey we used to use clear nail varnish (borrowed from the wife of one of the engineers) on the Rotring ink lettering we used to make on bare metal Eddystone boxes. Fast-drying and very durable.
