    JG,

    Cute carvings.

    Do you wash, lightly sand then seal and lightly sand before painting? When I get fuzzies it is because didn’t follow my processes. Now I don’t use paint so assuming that paint would raise fibers just like washing. MTCW

    Great suggestion. I’ve also learned that using a straight edged knife is better for carving the little basswood blocks. They don’t crumble as much.

    These little guys are 1 x 1 x 1 3/4 inches. Next time I need to examine them under a magnifying glass before I start painting. I couldn’t see any fuzzies until I took the photos! They are titled “First Date” and “Bubelah”
