    I use the seal , paint, finish, sand method often. I have also sprayed the board with a sealer to prevent bleeding covered the board with adhesive shelf paper, then carved, then sprayed the letters where the centerline removed the paper. Gives a crisp line. Differing results depending on the paper, some cuts good while some wants to stick to the bit Also smaller letters don't work as well due to center of 'a' & 'e' type letters come off. Capitals work better.

    Spray stencil ink does not wick into the end grain like paint and stain can, and dries quickly.

    I use the paint, finish, sand method then seal all the time, it works great on other material such as coasters.
    you donít have to be neat, just paint all the different colors at once

    I have often wondered why it is that
    Conservatives are called the "right" and Liberals are called the "left".

    I use Krylon colors in the small cans, I also use the high gloss gold matelic spray that I paint by brush, then sand down with 120 grit sandpaper and finish off with Krylon high gloss sealer just for looks.
    again on the coasters with text just paint the text and fill in all the text, you don’t have to be perfect, the sanding will clean up the excess paint

    Perry,

    Some of the reviews of the Krylon in the can say it is thin and requires multiple coats. Are you having any issues with it?

    No, I just load up the “V” centerline lettering with paint and let it ride

    In Centerline you don't have any control over the depth except which font you use...in Raster I sometimes cut it a little deeper and after spraying the entire piece as it comes out of the machine with sanding sealer...I then paint the letters with a good paint...let it dry for a good while and then run it thru my planer. That creates the sharpest edges and then you can stain the rest of the piece Recently a friend of mine gave me a "cut out" when they installed the sink in a "formica" counter top. the formica was glued onto a 10 layer marine plywood so when I carved it out I got several different colors depending on the depth. It looked so good I just put some trim around it and it was finished.
