Apply sanding sealer, let dry, apply black paint, let dry, sand with 150 grit.
Comments and suggestions for improvements are welcome.
On your process, when do you apply the sanding sealer? Before or after the carving.
I thought the 45 degree angle was the standard. I'll have to play with that and up it some to see the differences. I tried one yesterday of an old basic training picture I had that I wanted to do for my military keepsake box lid. When I viewed it, it looked ok with the constant nips making the picture. I Shellac it first and let dry, but when it carved, it was bare-butt smooth and I thought another scrap wood! However, I applied a light coat of blue spray paint and let that dry, then sanded it... it came out pretty darn good, I am surprised. It was a trial. So I'll keep at it!
