    Does anyone use watercolors to paint your carvings? I have always used acrylics but recently decided to try watercolors. I bought a cheap set from Walmart to see if I liked them or not. I use a lot of water and the color penetrates the wood. It looks more like a tent that paint. I like the watercolors and believe I will buy a more expensive set.

        Hey Denny---I shot you an email with a few questions. I might just have to dip my toe into the world of Pegas blades vs FD. At least to try! Open minded explorations. Thank you ! Linda
