    Just curious what everybody’s preferred method to mask carves to be painted.  I carve through polycrilic but it sucks to apply without a spray booth.

    I have been using Oracal Oramask 813 Stencil film.  I cover the project with the film and then do my carving.

    I then spray the carving with clear polyurethane to stop the pant from beading into the wood.  This is a real important step.

    After the polyurethane drys I then use spray paint to paint the carving.  When done painting I remove the mask and the sand before applying a clear coat.

    This it the process I used with this sign.

    I will have to try that.  I have found an acrilyc paint named Cheep, it is very thick like axle grease and doesn’t bleed at all.
