This christmas for a family home DIY project we've used plasterboard. Not being DIY savvy, thought it would be a nice and easy to material to work with, and it was!
Now we would like to decorate our little creation, however, both inside and out (ie, both sides of the plasterboard).
Here are the things we've been wondering:
- Is it possible to go and just paint faces of the plasterboard (tapered edge type)?
- If indeed possible, what kind of paint shall we use?
- If we can't just paint it, what kind of "treatment" can we apply to make it possible to paint? (please explain for each side of the plasterboard)
- If one side is paintable but the other isn't (without treating), what can be done to decorate the other side?
