I wanted to paint the letters but didn’t go about it the right way. Before cutting out the final profile I tried contact paper and recarve the letters. That don’t work like I thought it wouldn’t.
Then I tried painters tape and all that did was shove blue tape down in the wood. So I said forget it lol.
Next time I will either carve after 3d rough and then paint then after dry run the 3d finish. Should get nice clean text doing that.
Also order some oromask to give a try.
