I would like to mae wooden hearts and then paint them with a plain background and then paint smaller hearts or dots on them. Can anyone advise me what paint to use. Can I use ordinary matt or vinyl silk from B&Q or is there a special paint I need to use. I thin also I will use the foam brushes for a smoother effect

thanks everyone

Any hardware-shop paint that's for wood should work. So will acrylics, that you can buy in sets from cheapshops & booksale places. You might need to paint an undercoat and sand it down first...

It depends whether they will be indoors or outdoors when finished but I use a hardwearing durable matt paint from Homebase which is also waterproof and its also good to write on. I agree with Scorch though you will need to sand the surfaces well to get an even finish. :)

Hi there

You can use these really great Acrylic Paints that have a varnish inside them called 'Decorlack' paints. They are weatherproof and are suitable for painting onto wood.

You can see some free video demos using them if you go to the homepage http://www.artistsresource.co.uk and click on 'acrylic painting' on the left hand side.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for that tip.

I have been painting spoons - have to say I am no artist and these are a first try. I used acrylics and was able to seal with ordinary wood seal.

Other items I've painted, like stones, I use japlac gloss.

here are some spoons with ordinary wood seal:
