I’ve been curious about how y’all paint your sticks as of late. I just have a bunch of random questions for everybody out there. I’m not all that experienced with getting really good finishes, and I’m just interested to here what people have to say about the subject. I know “Painting” is a broad subject, and I mean it to be. I’m curious to hear what people do, what people want out of their finishes, how they go about getting them, what works and what doesn’t, and whatever else anybody has to say about theirs or someone else’s finishing process.
Some questions I’ve had…
What paints do people use? Where do you get them? What do you use for clear coating? Pros and cons of different types of clear coat? For those of you who may mess around with marble or other faux, or more “complex” finishes, what do you use? Do you use glaze at all? How do you ensure your finish is durable? How do you go about painting multi tone finishes? How about more intricate designs?
I’m not asking for people to spoon feed me information on how to make a hunk of wood pretty. I’m not asking “how do i do this?”, I’m really just curious about how YOU do this.
Any responses would be appreciated. I wanna know what y’all have to say about painting and finishing.
