Brothers of the Blade Part Two Painting

"Painting is the light at the end of the tunnel," says Rich Smoker. "It should also be the most illuminating step. I find painting a carving to be the most fun. It can also be the most challenging, frustrating, and intimidating step of any carving project (if you let it)."
