    Default Crafty help question re. paint

    I need some suggestions please girls. I'm not much of a craft person.



    Can I paint over cork? and if so - do I use a primer? Will this work??

    if you use something underneath the paint, you can loose the cork like appearance and texture, but i guess if you want to paint it then that doesnt really matter...
    you can use a primer, and then a sealer after wards.

    acrylic is prob best, but remember the cork is really ...man i cant think of the word...breathable? you know full of lots of tiny little holes and really absorbant, so might need a few coats.

    another option is to cover it in funky fabric?

    what is it you are painting?


    (ive never actually done it myself though...)

    Thank Hun.
    I have this idea for a crafty thing for some kids i'm working with. They are painting on a canvas and then I wanted them to paint smaller things that I can then attach to the canvas, i thought cork (like from a corkboard) might be good because then I can hot glue gun it to the canvas....
