    Sorry, I don't get on here often. I just use Hobby lobby acrylic paints. This one I used an off the shelf green and added one drop of black. My finish for basswood carving is this: liberal sanding sealer, then paint. After the paint dries I spray with a rattle can acrylic sealer "matt" finish. Then finally, I rub in Johnsons paste floor wax (comes in a large tin). Hope this helps!
    Thanks interesting process, ill try

    A question, I have done my first carving project a little chrsitmas tree, then i have tried to paint them, tried different mix of green, but didn'f find a good "Christmas Tree Green". Can you give me some advice on how you get that kind of green?

    Thanks,

    Cool. The trees remind me of VeggieTales (the cartoon for kids).

    I don't see anything there that you should be unhappy with, and I doubt if your family or friends will either.
    well done, both carving and painting.
