Not a new project. A comment about painting and CNC work that became evident in the Hogwarts Express Based Address Plaque.
I used acrylic paint from a craft store. Not a big fan of acrylic paint. Kind of went on like a half set white glue. Yes, it does smooth out quite a bit as it dries. The thickness issue and the two coats turned out to have an interesting affect. I initially painted the lower banner blue then painted over some of the blue for the red letters. The result was “highlighting” as it outlined the letters due to the V-bit angle.
Going to try multiple coats for thickness of the base color to see how it looks. I find it an interesting effect.
