The carve on the left is correct (and already painted). When I run the exact same job I get the outcome on the right about 50% of the time. I have been racking my brain to figure this out but it’s time to ask for help =)
This looks great and crisp. What are your steps to getting that painted outcome? I think I’ve read you put clear glue on the wood first for crisp edges, but then do you hand brush in the black, then even more carefully hand brush the white? Or do you do the “paint then sand” techniques or other?
On MDF, I sealed the entire thing with clear glue (2 coats) to keep the paint from bleeding into the surrounding areas. I then dabbed in the black paint, let dry and sanded so only the black paint in the lines remained. Then I sealed the entire thing with clear polyurethane and carefully painted the white.
