I made the shield from a nice piece off oak that where shelves from a old cupboard.
Use your X-carve to engrave en cut out the design.
(you can sand the top clean and use masking tape to cover the top if you wish)
When the x-carve is done cut free the design and use a blue paint to paint it.
i applied two layers
let it dry.
If you use the masking tape remove it. If not sand the blue paint of so it only remains in the deeper parts. ( i bet you wished that you used the masking tape didn’t you)
Use a red stain to stain the “bird” on the shield. be carefull you don’t spill any on the blue paint)
Use a clear varnish to finish your project.
Go on a epic adventure!!!
