I want to paint some wooden plaques for bow holders. I haven't painted on much other than canvas, lol. . .so my question is, do you always have to use a primer for wood? And the only paint I have is I think Liquitex acrylic. What do you all use? Those little bottles at Walmart and ACMoore, apple barrel, I think are those good? Also, do you finish with any kind of sealer or gloss? What about stencils and paint markers, do you ever use them? Haha, I need the 411 on painting!! Thanks ladies!!
