    The bottles arrived...and I started working!

    I did as told, but unfortunately the paint dried off in some areas in just a couple seconds and I didnt have time to apply sawdust properly, balancedly everywhere, but I still like it.

    The paint is obviously not good for a dark forest, but the saw I play at is ok for this and overall I like it.

    I got some Maston Matte spray. Should I use it, or will it become too glossy? I painted feldgrau to wood 2 times next to each other and sprayed other one, but I cant really figure out if it's too glossy. Atleast it became quite darker.

    .....And enough left over to paint the house!

    That's a thousand times better than before, well done young man.

    Forget the matt spray, they never used it so neither should you.
