When I get my GF I want to create signs and game boards with a glassy, glossy finish as see in these samples. Can anyone steer me in the right direction?
I am specifically interested in doing this over inlay (similar to this recent thread) as well as etching in case that changes anything.
Again, my woodworking experience consists of: I have seen a tree. (At least, I think it was a tree–tall brown thing, green stuff on top? Maybe it was a cell phone tower.) Anyway, there is zero chance I have any of the right tools, chemicals or abrasives already on hand so I am hoping to find really detailed instructions including recommendations for specific products.
Many thanks in advance if you can help me out!
