And here is my card with the painting done, the next step will be to stain it. The stain will drop into the tooled areas which will make them stand out out and it will make the metallic paint a bit less shiny so it will look a lot better after that step. I’m hoping to do the staining tonight so I may be able to get a picture of it tomorrow.
And here it is wth the stain applied. I may still do some touch ups on the paint before I apply the finish, but this is pretty close to how the completed piece will look.
