  • Paint

    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.

        That is beautiful.

        I am chaffing at the bit to get back to the scroll saw, Unfortunately the urban renewal project "Redoing the deck" has taken over all of my time.

        Excellent contrast not only in wood choices (LOVE the bocote), but also 90 degree corners on the bocote and radius corners on the maple. Very nice!
