    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
    Sorry to hear you aren't very well at the moment... big hug!

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

    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.

    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.

    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.
