    Re: paint and finish on relief carving

    Thor,
    I came to ask the almost the same question. I had emergency knee surgery to start the year, so my carving has moved indoors and reduced in size. I have carved a cane handle which I hope to use when the crutches are no longer required. The design on the front of the cnae is paitriotic and I have begun acrylic paint the red,white, blue and gold trim. I had planned to oil the balance of the piece. First I never thought of the reaction between the oil and the paint but is oil a good finish on my mahogany cane handle.
    Thanks to whoever can help Thor and I.

      Thor,
      First, did you seal the areas where you painted with acrylic paint? If not no mater what you use to cover the carving it will turn the paint darker by at least two shade's. If you used a wash to paint the areas then it won't be as strong. I would sugest trying the combinations you speak of on a scrap of wood before you put it on the carving. Be awear that the pine will change color with expouser to sun light reguardless of what you use.

            If you are still concerned about the conbination of the oil and acrylic, I use a matte finish deft on my carvings first. One coat, rub with wrinkled paper bag and then another coat and the paper bag. Then feel free to use your boiled linseed oil with the burnt umber. It gives a rich 'antiqued' appearance I think you will like. Happy carving. Pam

              I'll talk about this specific "slice" of your question, with more detail that you probably want or need.

              Most Tilting head saws do come from the same Taiwan factory, except Excalibur. So what happened with Excalibur was . . . General got bought by a Chinese investor, some China/Taiwan...

              Did this thread get hacked? That is a very strange sidetrack from KyivWorkshop.

              It doesn’t matter whether the saw table tilts or the saw arm tilts. Either can be used for any project cut at an angle, and there’s a learning curve for each.

              I actually prefer the tilting table because the blade remains vertical. I find that at really steep angles, like 40 or 45 degrees,...

              This is the tapestry I found in the cedar chest. We can’t identify where the pictures are from. Two among many. I also forgot to mention dad was also in the army Fife and Drum Corps and also played with a big band when he was discharged. Have to find that info....

              What a morning. The therapists were quite pleased with what he could do. He took the wrap off today and he can walk with the walker with very little pain. It’s getting the leg completely straight that is hard to do. It’s when his brother stopped in that things went off rails. Rolf, we are talking...
