No paint. Just a nice mellow stain, or put a finish on just like it is.

Nice. Buy you have to be really cautious about doing anything Disney related. Some years back a day care in FL redid their interior, and got some Disney characters painted on the walls. Well, seems the Disney corp got wind of that. Not sure what the whole story was, but the Disney characters wound up getting painted over., I got the impression Disney wanted money. Walt would have hated that. The day care then asked Warner if they could use some of their characters, and Warner immediately gave them permission to do so, with no obligation. Yea Warner. Boo Disney. So, if you go to jail for doing this, we want pictures.

I love it. I think you are OK if you don't sell it. Any variation, an extra tower or two, or placed differently, ought to change things. Just look up the castle Disney used as a model and rename it the _____ Castle. If you try to sell it, you could have some hassels. Change the color scheme slightly should help.

Looks good, but I would have gone with a stain. Painting something like that just seems wrong somehow.

Yes, copyright infringement is very serious. The NFL will crack down on people too! I even contacted the NFL for permission, but their guidelines are very strict, and want $150,000 for a license to produce NFL merchandise. I tried to get a small business one, but they won't do it. It's nice that Warner Bros. gave the day care facility permission to use their characters. Somebody turned them into Disney. How rotten is that?

The person who painted this did a really nice job. I can tell they put a lot of time into it. I probably would have gone with a stain too. I like some of the wood grain to show through and not have solid color. I do use solid color for sign lettering, but for art work, or carves, I prefer the look of stain. before I seal the wood I use watered down acrylic paint which sinks in real nice, shows color, but lets the wood grain show. Use good acrylic paint, not that junk in the plastic bottles at the craft stores.

Great job! As a disney fan, I really love your work. Looks amazing!
Can you tell what paint you used?
I have almost no experience with this. I have several different sets of acrylic paints and I once used set like here for painting on a wooden jewel-box. I covered it with varnish then. Everything looked great. But I'm not sure if it can be used for routed wood like yours

The painter I use is a local artist. So I don't know for sure what type of paint is used. I assume it is a quality acrylic. She has done many projects for me. The paint is very durable.
