If you’re doing it my way, make sure you paint the whole
surface of the wood, so the white becomes a way to
enhance the beautiful raw texture of the wood. When
painting those rough sides, it will be a bit messy at
first. Keep cleaning your brush to remove debris, and
when the first layer dries, it will be much cleaner to
paint the next layer.
Be patient, and when you’re done, the wood texture will
look like an amazing white sculpture.
