When you carve it modify the height of the Z probe with 1 mm less than it is in order for the topography to sow up.
Clean everything and prep for paint. I used a sealer before carving in order for the paint to not get sucked to deep in the wood.
Paint over the carved parts.
Very important to wait for the paint to cure otherwise you end up like me and using 15 sanding pads because the paint buildup.
Apply some finish.
