Some time ago one of my Instagram followers recommended me to try milk paint before carving. So, I ordered it and yesterday I got my first jar of milk paint (decided to use it on one of my boxes immediatly).
Here is the result:

Thank you for looking!

The contrast makes a stunning picture, I believe the lighter brown on the design is caused by shadows, A little more of a challenge to get the design and color to add to the design and not leave little random strips of color. will look forward to more designs.

Hey Tatiana,
Nice work trying new techniques with your carving!
You can also try applying a gel stain before carving and acrylic paint in the carved recesses.
Keep experimenting and sharing.

Wow! Tatiana, this is a great experiment and I believe it will yield some surprising results if you stick with it. Marty is right about experimenting with different mediums and colors. I can see from this piece that you will not be disappointed with some more experimenting. I believe you will be well rewarded by your efforts.

You are truly talented and do excellent creative work while echoing classic styling. The addition of color will expand your creative workspace. I look forward to seeing more of what you do with this.
