Re: Painted Graphic On Natural Wood?


If you do not need the grain on the painted areas, I would seal the entire surface first. Then mask off the tinted area. Shoot the tinted area, remove mask, seal again, scuff sand, finish, scuff sand, finish, repeat finish and scuff sanding until the lip is not noticeable.

If you want the cleanest lines, and time is not an issue, after masking, spray the sealer lightly again, then shoot the color. I have not actually done this, but have read about the same technique for painting crisp edges.

I'd be tempted to find someone who has an ink jet printer that would do it.

My refinisher does it this way-
seals top
light sand
mask
paint with laq
seals
sands
several clear coats
wet sand
2 more clear
wet sands to gloss
polishes to super high gloss

just like piano refinishing

$$$$$

I'm guessing you guys are taking the example I posted to seriously. Our design is pretty simple - more like simple pinstriping.

That is what my refinishers do on pianos with gold pin striping. Lady who sands is from Honduras, all she does is sand, but she does it evenly and never sands through color. I would hate that job.

Re: Painted Graphic On Natural Wood?


I like doing inlays. I just did some cool turquoise and coral stone for a bar top. I made some furniture with it as well. But it's pricey (crushed stone and epoxy resin $$$) and labor. They have black stone as well.

I buy my materials from Treeline. In fact I've got another one lined up fro an HO, just purchased a big chunk of pine slab from a sawmill which needs to be sanded down then inlayed in turq. Fun projects for sure.

Maybe your HO would be interested in going this route. You could lay out their design, fill with stone then epoxy over it for a nice hard glassy finish, Router out a design and just fill.



I buy my stone and glue from here

Don't want to hi-jack..but I've done some of these in the past. Out here in CO and AZ this inlay work is pretty popular. I like the guys simple homemade jig to plane the slab.

Graphics are typically clear coated. The graphics are sprayed if not vinyl so very thin. I think you need to clear it first to get good adhesion for the masking and then top coated. Also keeps it from soaking in to the wood, which it would.
