    Cool thanks for the tips on the painting. I'll pass this on to my co-worker and take a look in the archves to see what I can find on duck poop! hahahaa

    She also asked about something like making sure the paint doesn't bleed - does that make sense? Well thx again and see you on the trail if you come to Alberta!

    I have used both an oil based and water based acylic paints.

    I use the oil based paint at full strength and water based paints, i cut half and half with water, until it has a smooth consistency.

    To work the paint into the rawhide, i use popcicle sticks (chocolate fudge actually), cut into various widths.

    I do the same thing for parfleech i make.

    Paint for a Hand Drum

    A co-worker of mine asked me about painting a hand drum she was asked to do and wanted to know what she should use to do so.

    I asked her what it was for and it was a decorative drum that is not intended for Ceremony or use.

    What type of paint would you use to Paint and would you put a lacquer on it afterwards?
