    That is really nice. What type of paints did you get at the conference? It has a very interesting sheen that catches your eye more than acrylic or other crafting paints I'm used to using .

    Yup... paints or made by Golden and are called Interference paints?.... (OK SharonB chime in anytime... LOL) They do put a nice "sheen" on paintings. It's just a matter of knowing where to place it. Basically you still paint everything with your paints and these other "Golden" paints are added to areas of the painting to add that "extra" look. One day I'll do it as well as SharonB so for now I'm still learning how to use them. You can buy these at Hobby Lobby or Michael's, and located in the Art section (not woodcrafts like I've been looking in forever). They typically come in tubes and they last forever from what I understand. SharonB brought some to us at the conference and let us have some small samples and that's what I'm using now until I go out and purchase my own. Thanks SharonB! I'm really liking these paints.
    Here's the mpc in case anyone is interested in it.
    Never Forgotten 2.mpc

    Note: In case anyone noticed that the "soldier's cross" (weapon, helmet & boots) are different in the colored pic and the 1st pic that I posted before carving it. I was told that there is typically a soldier holding Dog Tags while kneeling and praying so I went "google" hunting and found it. Imported it and updated my mpc.

    Jerry....That did turn out nice. Love the way you used the Interference paints. Guess I have at least one convert to the Golden Paints. I'm still trying to catch up from my Alaska vacation and the CW Conference, plus the current local quilt show (just admiring not participating). But I'm certainly going to have to try your Never Forgotten plaque soon. I have board gluing now so I can carve legs for my cribbage table (using Terry T's pattern) but once that is done your pattern will be next on the list.

    Every one has a photographic memory. Some just don't have film.

    Henry.... I use what are called Interference paints by Golden Paints. Just type in Golden Paints and it should take you right to their website. I need to take a moment and post some of my carvings that were shown at the Houston Conference for those that were unable to attend. I have also started using Golden's Fluid Paints on some of my carvings. Here in the U.S. Golden Paints can be purchased in most stores where artist paints are sold. Online they are available from Golden Paints, Jerry's Paintarama. Dick Blick, etc. These paints are a little on the expensive side but they last a long, long time... as they are used for highlighting your work after you have painted/stained your piece. I will start another thread and show some of my pieces.
