  • what finish

    Hi. I made a couple of new things today. The heart came out better than I expected. It has not had the finish put on yet.I plan to paint the side red and then spray a lacquer clear finish.It is made from 9mm and 4mm birch ply. The box is the first ever I have made. The box part is made up of two pieces of 18mm MDF and the base is 2.5mm MDF while the lid is 6mm MDF with a 2.5mm piece under the lid that fits inside the bix. I made a hardwood heart to go on the top which is not glued on yet.

    I have been giving some thought as to how I will finish the box, what readily comes to mind is a coat of primer followed by two coats of semi-gloss acrylic paint. If anyone has any other ideas I would be glad to hear them.
