Is there a special technique that anyone can recommend for painting inner and outer edges of a cutout (say, from a jigsaw or something).
I've thrown together an example in Tinkercad:
I'm planning on having 2 colors, the blue on top and orange along the text. My actual design will be exposing inner and outer edges of text.
I've done this before with masking tape, spray paint, and a helluva lot of patience (and usually end up doing it about 4 times before I'm happy with it). I feel like there's gotta be a better way, an ancient woodworking secret that I have yet to be taught, oh masters of wood.
Even if I went the tape / spray paint route, which would be a better part to do first? The orange or the blue? Does it matter?
EDIT: in case it matters, this is about an 16" long sign, about 8" tall. Several kinda sharp corners on the lettering. Wood is a 3/4" board (I think alder?).
EDIT: One (probably important) detail I forgot to mention is the edge will be routed. The bevel will be blue.
