I want to stencil a paper shade/what paint

Posted by garnet150 (My Page) on

I have an accordion pleated paper shade that I'd like to put a stencil on and don't know what kind of paint to use. Regular spray paint or house paint will crack as I re-fold the shade, so I need some ideas of what kinds of paint I might be able to use. I know nothing about paint. Watercolors, maybe?

Watercolors would probably work....or how about stencil paint? After two months you have probably already done it and hung the shade, haven't you? I'm just trying to move this down. There must be more painters out there somewhere...why don't we liven up this forum????
