  • 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.

          Thanks for the info Denny. When I cut acrylic I always use a skip tooth blade at a slower speed. I just did not realize that the epoxy would cut the same way as acrylic so I followed the materials list in the article.

          OK folks, picture. I finally figured out how to upload a picture. Here is one each of my version of the oak and cherry boxes. Note the axle peg holding the top in place but allowing it to move.
