An historic advertising sign has been recreated at a living museum in County Durham.
Herrons Bakery is the latest addition to the collection of historically significant buildings which form part of Beamish, The Living Museum of The North, and needed a traditional style, exterior advertising sign to complete the bakery.
Eddie Rodger, a sign-writer from Gateshead, was commissioned to take on the project. I used Sandtex Trade High Cover Smooth in terracotta and brown colours for the detailed work, as I knew the mural needed to last for a long time without re-painting and that after 15 years it would not have lost any of its quality or impact.
A water-borne protective finish, Sandtex Trade High Cover Smooth is ideal for most exterior masonry surfaces and exterior grade building boards and has 15 years guaranteed durability.
Sharon Smith, Brand Manager for Sandtex Trade said: Sandtex Trade does offer a quality finish for a long period of time and we are very pleased it has proved to be the paint of choice for such a fantastic project.
