If I paint clothes pins with acrylic paint, what should I put over the paint to assure it stays put. I want to use the pins on my clothesline but DO NOT want the paint to get on my clothes. Any suggestions?
I do not paint the inside of my clothes pins. For the outside, I paint an acrylic/waterproof finish. I found the paint at Walmart. Haven't had any problem with clothes being stained.
I paint EVERYTHING that can't run away from me! I love color so I painted ALL my clothespins different polka dots and covered them with clear nail polish. They've survived dozens of Pennsylvania Winters, and look great on my clothesline!
Just curious, why are you painting them?
Why not just look for different colored plastic clothespins, if the color of them is so important. To me that would be a lot easier. Painting each clothespin, then coating it with some kind of sealer hardly seems worth the effort!!
