Wood…

I have a new project to begin…  My hubby has been carving wood caricatures – very cool.  My job is to paint them.  I have three completed and waiting for me, but I am hesitant to put brush to them before researching what would be the best materials to use.  It seems everyone has a different opinion on this subject… Any wood carvers out there with any suggestions?  I would love to use oil glazes, but wonder about the drying time and finishing coat.  Acrylic washes are another option, but which paints are the most compatible with wood?  At the Woodcraft store in Clearwater, they had dry pigment acrylic type dye paints that look very interesting, but would be pricey to invest in if they weren’t really the best to do the job.   Such options have this girl in a whirl.  I wouldn’t want to desecrate my hubby’s artwork with a less than superior finish!  So, any suggestions from anyone who has experimented or worked with wood painting would be welcomed.

BTW – good stuff is happening on my other projects – pics soon to follow  🙂  Also, any whole, used guitar/bass strings would be so appreciated…
