  • Had to play inside today

    My back was not user friendly today and never even made it to the shop.
    I stayed in and painted a few ornaments I wasn't planning to paint.

        I really love it when Christmas has Red, White and Green

        I have a bunch of questions

        Are these with Baltic Birch?

        Are you sealing before painting?

        What kind of paint are you using?

        Thanks

              Don, These are all 1/8" BB but I often use whatever scrap fits the purpose.
              The paint is the cheapest brand Michael's carries about a buck a bottle and if you join their on line site you can usually print a good discount coupon..
              If you are going to stain do it first and give them a quick shot of shellac or clear acrylic and the paint covers much better.
              Be sure and have plenty of helpers.

                I would rather make "little rocks out of big rocks" than paint Oily. Looks good.

                  So you spray your projects before trying to paint them? I'm new, but never tried that before.

                    It stops the wood from sucking the water from the water based paint letting them level a little better and less second coating.
                    The only time I use paint is on ornaments and toys.
                    Ornaments I only paint one side and give them a final coat or two of clear acrylic.

                      It ain't bad. It's better than basket weaving down at the home.

                        Hey Rob, your painting level is good! You've done a very nice job on the santa's!
                        The little helpers are very tired I guess, was it before or after they helped you? ...lol

                          Quartz I only bought the air filter, That same model is sold by many distributors, I see Grizzly has it and several others. I was going to build one but this thing works great. I will get a charcoal filter for it also. Great when doing Pyrography. They also had a Pfingst brand flex shaft tool I haven't...

                          Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

                          Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.
