V bit carving for the first time yesterday and I’m really pleased. Second pass was on target too.
My finished project isnt quite what i wanted.
Once I carved the lettering onto the oak with a 90 degree bit (dont have a 60 yet), I wiped it over with shellac (one coat), then later brushed over the letters with water based paint. Once dry I then sanded off the surrounding paint.
I’d like some advice on making the insides of the letters smooth. At the moment they look bitty, but they didnt look like that pre paint. Is it just a question of too much paint? I’ve got a spray can but I’m a total novice with it.
Any tips would be lovely.
