A small change made a big difference
Members may remember the doggy clock that I routed for my wife, well the position where it's mounted has no direct light so the numerals are difficult to see being black, so I've just filled them in with acrylic ceiling white. The first numeral I was very careful, using a very fine brush and it seemed to take forever so from then on I wasn't at all careful because when it was dry, I used a chisel to cut away the surplus then applied one coat of shellac followed when dry with a good rub a dub dub of clear shoe polish.
