RE: Scratchboard sites of interest

The cans said "Fast Drying All Purpose Spray Enamel" - definitely oil-based,
requiring good ventilation. Because of space and time constraints, I
sprayed the kids' scratchboards in my backyard, returning them to class the
following day. I'd say this wouldn't be considered safe for kids to spray.
But this proved to be a good solution to my particular situation (small,
shared room / very limited class time (40 minutes a week, sometimes every
other week).

Hope this helps,

Theresa, Was it oil base or latex? Safe for kids to spray or no? Thanks,

Speaking of scatchboard, I recently tried spraying inexpensive enamel spray
