I'm having to move soon, and that means new room  Smiley I was thinking about painting one wall with magnetic paint. I've always wanted to collage a wall, but I figured this would make it easier to change and eventually take down. So the point is, how well does magnetic paint work?  I've heard of painting small spots with it, but is it smart to paint a whole wall? and are there any strange problems with it? (like, will it stunt my growth... or does the paint go on funny etc)

you can do a whole wall, but multiple coats will work best... also you'll need superstrong magnets, and just as an FYI, if you paint another color over the magnetic paint, it won't adhere as well, so take that into consideration.

thus far my growth has not been stunted, and it went on okay...  Wink

The magnetism is pretty wimpy, like one coat won't hold a plastic letter for the fridge kind of wimpy. So doing a whole wall with enough coats to make it stick would probably be really tiresome.

Perhaps tacking up sheet metal and painting it one coat of whatever-color-you-like? it'll make the room noisier more but the magnetism will be much better.

thanks  Smiley, im now thinking that painting a whole wall is maybe not the best idea, if the magnetism is not so strong. maybe small sections with multiple coats?? *sits and ponders*
