General Techniques Used in Wood Carving Painting

 Working into a line or intersection

Brush strokes used to paint your wood carvingWith a light-loaded flat shader I can place the brush tip slightly away from a demarcation line or joint line in my carving. As I move the brush into the line in a gently curve I also apply a small amount of pressure to place about one half of the bristle lengths onto the wood. Now I can pull the line.

When I begin to reach the end of the line I curve the brush away from the line while slowly lifting it off the wood.
