| | Re: OT - painters / artists HELP! What kind of paint?
All the supplies you need such as sealer and paint you will find at michaels in the tole painting aisle.
Sealer I use decoart americana wood sealer this is not a must but is always better to use it since your painting surface will be much more smoth and nice.
Paints you can use decoart americana as well as plaid I use both since i am a maniac for paints.
When you finish paintinf your piece it is always better to use a spray varnish in order to maintain it over the years and giving it a nice subtle finish glow.
