you want to use a primer on raw wood... otherwise your craft paint can suck into the grain and it'll seem like its taking a ton of coats to get a smooth look.

to seal just use a clear poly in your choice of finish satin, semi, gloss... you can paint it on or spray it your choice
I say what I want, when I want, no one pays me... Its my opinion take it or leave it
