    Hey guys I have a boring wooden table that I was wanting to paint a picture on...my question, what kind of paint should I use? It will be sanded down first to remove any sort of finish it currently has on it. I have acrylic paint around here that I use occasionally but figured that would scratch off easily. I plan on putting a coat of varnish or a clear coat on after I paint it but I have never painted anything on wood. Anyone?

    It's easy to do a painted table. After you sand it, paint it with a primer (a normal latex one would be fine). Then you can paint your picture over that with your acrylic paint (acrylic may scratch but it will be protected so it isnt a problem). Finally, use a clear varnish to protect it (I would probably do two coats)
