  • A Painting How to on Basswood, Lynn Doughty

    I only paint on basswood and when it is requested. Painting carvings was always a issue for me and I did not do it well. Then I found Lynn Doughty's method of painting and have enjoyed painting ever sense. It is just one of many ways but I thought it woud be helpful if some one was struggling with how to.

    Lynn Doughty's method is the way I've been painting for a long time, but I'm just curious about the oil treatment before painting, & the walnut oil just kind of stands out to me. Haven't tried it yet, but plan on it. Will try Mahoney's

      I have not painted over a oil finish base Joe. There are a number that use acrylic over curd BOL. I have used oil paint mixed with linseed oil on cypress knees. Driving time was about a week or so. I know heat treated walnut oil cures notably quicker than organic walnut oil.

        Thanks for p0sting, Randy. I watched all 7 episodes. Saw a couple of new techniques, even. One thing I noted, especially, is that Lynn used a "drop" of epoxy on the eyeball instead of the white dot. I have been using a drop of Mod Podge on the eye for several years now for the same effect. As the carving turns, or the viewer moves, the "white dot" of reflected light moves, making the eye very realistic. In the past, I have also used a dot of Sally Hansons Hard as Nails finger nail topcoat that I "borrowed" from my wife. I switched to the Mod Podge because of the acetone fumes from the nail polish.

          I used to use epoxy on the eyes, but then I stumbled on gloss glaze called "Triple Thick" manufactured by Americana. Seems to achieve the same results, with no mixing or odours.
