(10/15/1998•08:23) What paint [edit]Archive Message 
by good guy

What kind of paint is best to use on cardboard?

I want to use a silver/metalic for the armour but I'm not sure that spray paint would work-has anybody had results?

I've used both spray paint (got it from an auto parts store) and acrylic. Spray paint gives a smoother and somewhat more metallic sheen than acrylic. However, after applying a layer of polyeurothane to protect the paint, the difference is less. And make sure you use water-based polyeurothane. The oil-based stuff produces a very thick layer. (Although I do recommend oil-based for non-metallic colors.)

Hey thanks for the answer. I'll be on my way then.
