I decided to try a couple of rifle stocks this way. First because the shape of them needed it, and second, going straight in hasn't worked for me, and rolling has its problems too, although I have been rolling most of the stocks as of late.
While I haven't dipped 50/50 yet, I'm sure not liking the extra work with all of the masking. I did try 50/50 dipping half, letting the PVA dry, then dipping the other half. Had a real hard time getting the first part of the dip off, so don't want to do it that way either.
Any suggestions to make things easier?
