Very nice, how did you apply the paint?

Spray paint!

nice, I know some people have bleed lines in wood, wasn’t sure on acrylic, never tried it. You didn’t have to put any clear coat down over the masking first like some suggest on wood did you?

Man, you got a mirror finish with the paint, looks like acrylic. For a man-cave huh?

A true man’s way of life.

Ha! That is so funny given all the splendid objects you posted in your recent project dump.

the kind of bleed lines that clear-coat helps to solve is due entirely to the grain of the wood. No grain in acrylic!

What material was this? How the heck did you get such a shine on the black paint?

Any paint that is painted on the back of acrylic will look this shiny!!

Interestingly enough this is actually a matte black

Thought so but wasn’t sure, haven’t really worked to much with acrylic yet.
