Melamine

I was doing carvings on Melamine a few months back. I plan to use this technique on my kitchen cabinets.

I really enjoy doing things like this with PVC, I do it slightly differently than those directions though but it's fun to try different settings and techniques to see how they turn out.

The elephant is a pencil drawing and the school is from a photograph.

Would you please list the settings you used for the cuts. Thanks. George.

Also, what did you use for a finish to get the darker shades?

And what wood is that?

The settings I used is about 14% line spacing, this varies based on size or level of detail I want, and I usually use a .125 ball nose. Sometimes I cut at a .05 or .03 depth, this also depends on the picture. After it's cut I cover it in paint and then sand off the top until I get the desired shading.

These were done in pine.

I hope that helps.

Do you use any type of sealer before painting to avoid bleeding?
I've learned so much from my mistakes, I'm thinking of making a few more.

Not on these. I usually use chalk paint because it's thicker and it doesn't seem to bleed at all.
