First Stages of Acrylic Paint
We are now going to tie all the elements together with out first coats of acrylic paint.
.Before painting, mask of the center of the box with masking tape to avoid paint getting on the exposed wood.
2. Apply Lamp black working the paint into all the nooks and crannies.
3. Continue with this until the whole front and edges of the book are covered and allow to dry.
Once dry you will notice missed areas, the best way to get to these areas is to add some water to the black paint to make a wash.
Apply this to the entire surface, you will find the watered down acrylic will seep into the missed areas easily.
Allow to dry before continuing to the dry brushing stage.
