Default Have I mentioned I Hate Carving Pine

I hate......let me say this again.....I HATE carving and painting Pine!!

I've done the sanding sealer before carving trick.....not good.
I've done the clear acrylic application before painting trick.....not good.
I've done several light coats of paint trick.....not good.
I've done the heavy coat of paint trick.....not good.

Get the feelings that I have? Pine is not good to, or for me.

Any suggestions because I am at wits end.

Thanks!

Poplar will do that as well, especially if it is a 12" x 40" x 1.5" slab you had to glue up for a project... I fully understand your frustration

What kind of paint are you using? That could make a difference.

I've not painted many carved items, but have done a few. Used acrylic latex, and had no issues at all.

Theo, I am using Rustoleum 2X Black Primer. I don't have this issue on other species of wood. Only in Pine.

Thanks.

Take the sign outside. Get a two pound hammer. Beat it to pulp! It obviously won't make the sign any good, but you'll feel much, much better. Have a good/better day.

Frank I use Marsh Spray Stencil ink when I do v-carving on my CNC machine (I also use masking). It dries fast so if you don't spry too much at a time it works. On select pine I usually spray several light coats from different angles (don't try to do it all at once, keep it dry) spray and let it dry between coats. This might take quite a few coats to cover it all but it keeps it from bleeding. On hard woods like Cherry and Oak I spray from 4 different directions at one time and then let it dry. I have had it bleed when I get in a hurry and put heavy coats on it get it covered, then I have the headache of cleanup or re-cutting the project, not fun and wastes time and materials.

I like Doug's suggestion. Popular is light, soft, usually cheaper, and lacks the pitch that pine is famous for.

Late getting to this Frank. But are you sanding before sealing it? You've seen the Tack sign & Provenzano sign both in pine with no bleeding. I sanded real good first then sealed before painting.
