    I make a lot of puzzles and I thin my acrylic paint a little, I do not paint the inside cuts of the pieces only the face and back and outside surfaces. I rarely make any puzzles out of pine anymore, the wood is too brittle & the grain can make a botched job instantly by grabbing the blade and throwing it off course. I use poplar for probably 80% of my puzzles and other hard woods for the other stand up style puzzles.
