Hi All! I'm new to this dollhouse hobby and am currently working on the Greenleaf Orchid. My question is: how do you prevent craft wood from warping during the painting process? I haven't done much yet, but I have tried painting balsa wood with acrylic paint, only to find the wood warps from the moisture. Any advice on how to stop this? Some of the responses online in other forums I've found are: - use a thinner amount of paint (but I still feel the wood will warp) - use a sealer to prime the wood for painting (if this is what you do, what do you use and how do you apply it? I can't find a youtube video or information on this). One brand suggestion is the minwax polycrylic. Any advice, tips or tricks would be GREATLY appreciated!
