Important TIP -Prep for PAINT
Notice a strip of the Gnomes hat in the front that appears different from the rest of the hat. It's a little rougher that the rest of the hat. This occurs when you do not carve the entire surface of the piece, and then apply paint to the piece.
Before you paint a carving, check it to be sure that all of the carving's surface has been carved. If you want the carving's surface to be consistent in the way it accepts the paint, this is critical.
