I and my grandchildren created a nice jack o lantern for the halloween
It is very big. Now we are going to paint it.
What type of paint to choose? Who knows?
Myabe the spray paint?
At any rate, it should dry fast.

Any ideas or brands?

Check the shop and the packaging. Sainsbury s have a children's craft section.if not a craft shop.

Thanks LullyDully,

I decided to choose the acrylic paint, but I need a lot of. Usual painting kits for children do not have that amount of paint that i need.

I'm going to take a usual white base, something like this
and add the orange colourant.

So, I hope it will dry fast.

Make sure it's non-flammable or use a battery t-light
