I told Honest John that I paint by numbers.. and he called BS. so I thought I would spend the next few days walking you all through my process for painting a large piece.

This particular one is a 48" lodge sign that I just finished carving. I have been asked to match their logo colors and design.

attached are the first few pictures of the model is used to sell the customer, the carving just off the CNC, and their LOGO. I expect to start adding paint pictures in a few days.... as soon as I number all the paint cans again..

The carving was done as follows.

1. rough out carving with a .75 mill took about 58 minutes at 250 ipm feed.
2. finish carve was .25 ball mill and took 6.75 hours at 250 ipm feed.
3. A V carve for the Soldotna words took 15 minutes, and the Cabins & words was a pocket carve using a .125 mill. about 28 minutes.

still have some hand clean up to do than I will seal the wood prior to painting.

so stand by... painting starts Friday....

Yeah Yeah Yeah - you'll find some way to make us mortals look bad as the carving god bestows and flaunts his powers!!

Jealous??? Damn right.

Looks better than good, Scott. But a Polish Eagle instead of a plain ole bald eagle would really set it off! lol

I'm really looking forward to this series. Painting is always a PIA and anything I can learn to improve my skills will be greatly appreciated.

Are you kidding us Oliver? We all wish we had the skills in painting that you and Scott have.

Scott's the expert. In my case, it's all done with smoke and mirrors.

I tried the smoke and mirrors, I burned it up and it looked twice as bad because of the reflection in the mirror.:crying::smile:

I still didn't see any of the numbers. Must of been on the back of the paint cans, or the cheat sheet that came with the piece.

No beret or smock either. You got to look the part.

I know it's hard for you to contemplate the idea that most of us can't do that because it comes natural to you. Just keep them coming. You're continuing to add to your legacy here.

I had a beer and a shot in your honor. I don't do that for everybody.lol
