  • need to sand after painting

    Help,I sanded the puzzle pieces for the barn puzzle I saw in a Scrollsaw project, painted them with acrylic paint and was disappointed that the wood was rough again and needed to be either sanded again, which would take off the paint, or painted with many, many coats. I painted them 2 times and then finished with shellac but they were still a bit rough around the edges. Any suggestions?

    Just a guess but did you use pine? Try using poplar wood for your puzzles it won't raise the grain as badly when painted. Try finishing with shellac first this will fill the pores of the wood and then paint it.

        Any waterbased finish will raise the grain of any wood when you use it. Let your first coat dry overnight (whether you use a clear coat first or just the paint). Then take a piece of brown paper bag and sand the project. This will remove the fuzzies but not the paint. Apply your second coat. Depending on what type of wood you use, you may or may not need to sand again after the second coat.

          It was a challenge that’s for sure. I didn’t start anything until I was all finished. It’s nice to have a clean area to work in! My biggest challenge was all those pieces of scrap wood that I just might need “someday.” They burned well in my son’s woodstove. And I did get through all the patterns....

          Wow - Betty, what do you charge. I have things to do and I'm in the process of cleaning my shop, just to have room to do it. My problem is that I get the work bench cleared and then start working on projects again. I really need to do the workbench last.

          I ordered and received the ORTUR Laser Master 2 from Amazon, the but haven't had a chance to even get it out of the box. Too much going
          on right now. I got the 20 watt version, which is supposed to be good for cutting, but I don't think I'll be doing much of that. There will be a learning curve...
