Making Marbling Trays
- The resident handyman (DH) has agreed to make 4 trays for my marbling
pleasures, two small, two large. . . . some for watercolor inks, some
for acrylic paints. (these are in addition to two plastic Colophon
trays I already use) So I have this question . . . .
Does anyone know of any reason that the wood trays could not be
painted with Olympic Premium Exterior Oil Gloss White paint? Will I
be asking for trouble by not using polyurethane? DH seems to think
that the exterior paint will be more durable for the wet purpose.
But once the trays are painted with the oil-based paint, then I
cannot repaint with a water-based acrylic or poly. As we are making
the trays today, I'd like to paint them tomorrow. Any thoughts,
