While making the planters for our holiday gifts I learned a neat trick: When painting PG draft board or lumberyard MDF the surface sort of fuzzes and isn’t a lovely tactile experience. I was cutting interior paint (2 water: 1 paint ratio) for the visual effect but hated the feel. By using baking parchment to buff each piece I got a smooth matte finish that looks and feels pleasing.
Hope this tip helps save y’all some time. Happy Making in 2019! -Bride of Simeon
