How about going to the dollar store or a party store and getting
ashtrays to use as rivets?  Sone are thin enough to cut and most look
like metal or are metal.

Subject: I Need Two Ideas

I'm helping in an extracurricular project wherein we're converting a
computer lab to look like the interior of a submarine control room.  I
need a very inexpensive idea on how to (re)create rivets where we've
joined masonite.  We'd like to have them measure 3-4 inches in diameter
and keep the domed effect on them.  As we'll need a lot of these, our
shoestring budget must keep them cheap.  Any ideas?
Also, any ideas on a budget-minded matte-finish spray that will cover
and protect some acrylic murals that we've painted on top of
latex-painted cement walls?  These are very, very large areas.  Thanks
for any input.  Marty
