Hello all been awhile since I posted anything. Life has thrown a few curves in the past few months so had to step away from the CNC wood side of things for a bit.
The attached is a file I recently cut for a dear friend. Method used was stacked text and a very steady hand painting.
Finish: Rattle can poly. Acrylic paints on the lettering.
Bits Used: 1/4 large area clearance, 1/16 tapered ball nose finish cut. Very little hand sanding required.
Painting process has a funny story attached. The lettering was originall gold background letters with black foreground letters.
Once delivered found out it was not the colors that my friend cared for. So she was going to bring it back to me for a correction. Well it never showed up and the other night while I was visiting
I asked about it. Well she said she went ahead and painted it herself to the colors she liked. I asked to see it expecting a mess. I was pleasantly impressed with the attached piece. And the amazing thing was this was done right over top the original acrylics with wait for it.......... Fingernail Polish. I was floored and like it much more than my original.
So I am thinking the little woman may need to keep an eye on her nail polish from here on out.
