Making and painting the shield

I made the shield from a nice piece off oak that where shelves from a old cupboard.
Use your X-carve to engrave en cut out the design.
(you can sand the top clean and use masking tape to cover the top if you wish)

When the x-carve is done cut free the design and use a blue paint to paint it.
i applied two layers
let it dry.
If you use the masking tape remove it. If not sand the blue paint of so it only remains in the deeper parts. ( i bet you wished that you used the masking tape didn’t you)

Use a red stain to stain the “bird” on the shield. be carefull you don’t spill any on the blue paint)

Use a clear varnish to finish your project.

Go on a epic adventure!!!

Yes sir that would be awesome if you could do that...I’m not very good at designing yet I wonder how hard it would be to design some swords and what I wanted to do with the swords is make them look like they are going into the shield?
