Board painting

Like any teenagers, I went from putting stickers on my board to painting in order to express my creativity. ONe thing is sure I would not have been a great artist.

So here on surfline I read a tip from Brad Nadell, founder of Foam E-Z who gives a quick tip:

"The type of paint you want to use is water based Tempera -- this paint can be air-sprayed or air-brushed right onto the foam.

Many people hand-paint boards using sponge brushes, wisk brooms, paint brushes, sponges, and just about anything that will apply paint.

Don't put it on too thick, though. The appropriate thickness is about the consistency of whole milk. Have fun and and let the paint fly."
