I decided to try my hand at a similar painted saw blade. I prepared the used blade here.
This blade is slated for our carpenter friend who always jokes (in a deadpan way) about his rope belt factory.
I made a full-size design on paper and then transferred it to the blade with carbon paper.
It left a clear outline on the saw blade which I enhanced with silver Sharpie.
Then with a small can of Bob Ross’ “liquid white” and a skinny brush I painted over the letters. Since I couldn’t finish at that time I picked up the blade and smeared the paint.
Sheesh! The lettering was pretty much ruined so I wiped it all off and cleaned the blade again with finger nail polish remover.
The next day I started again.
I’m not sure how long the liquid white takes to dry but it definitely needs a couple more coats and some detailing. Maybe, as I practice, I’ll get steadier.
Do you have a summer project? Or are you taking a trip?
