If someone had a chunk of large-diameter bamboo that had been stained and lightly sealed somehow before... say, something kind of maybe like this:



If someone had this thing, and they wanted to be able to paint on it, how would one prepare it properly? How would one seal it to protect it afterward?

Hypothetically.

I would use acrylic craft paint (those tiny bottles at Michaels) and then seal with a spray clear like Satin DEFT(lacquer), or Satin Clear Polycrlic.

I hope it's hypothetically.. I'd cry if you painted something that's that cool to begin with.. ESPECIALLY if it's a vintage purse...

either way.. where'd you find it!! I want one!

Rest assured, I would never let the Bamboo Handbag you know and love be painted. For those who have not met Bamboo Handbag in person, here's a little history:

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=4150&forum=5

I'm talking about Bamboo Handbag's fraternal twin, Backup Handbag. She's gettin' a paintjob, but I'm not doing it myself, I've got a friend to help with that bit. I just need to make sure she's prepared into a proper canvas.

Bamboo Handbag has her own fanclub of sorts on MySpace:
