    Which paint is the best?

    Just made a paper mache box thing, for my GF to put all her take that (CRAP) treasures in.

    Just wondering what paint will cover the newspaper? I.e. so you can not see the newspaper.

    I thought acrylic.

    think i remember from a long time ago with my mates kids doing it with water based paint and then varnishing it to give it strength and protection

    Why not cover it in Take That pictures / magazine articels etc etc?

    Yep acrylic, as it's thicker hun

    Anti Climb Paint (Anti-Vandal & Anti-Intruder) - 1 litre around £7

    should be the safest option

    I have done that on the inside.

    I have done outside of it like a brief case, like a clown one, cos of the 'circus' theme.
