I have a question. Right now, one of my classes is doing a life-size
papier mache-looking scultpture. (Long story) In any case, I want to paint
over the papier mache (once dry) with a white latex paint. This way the
sculpture is uniform and ready to be attacked with colors. But I want to do
undercoating of gold first. (I thought this would be easier than making the
color.) Can I use spray paint on top of the latex? What kind of base does
the spray paint need to have? (acrylic?) I want to use spray paint because
it is pretty accessible; I don't have to wait for a purchase order go
through all the red tape. Please let me know what you think...Thanks! :)
