    I agree that Spray paint works well, I used Flourescent Green on the Christmas tree.

    Also, if it is black that you are searching for, in the future home depot sells coro that is black on one side and white on the other.

    Just in case you wanted to buy more (you can never have enough coro)

    Painting Coro works! Krylon Fusion for Plastic is the best bond for an under $7 per can spray paint...otherwise SEM makes a product that is really good but its about $12 per can... the differences are not noticeable enough to go the SEM route though.

    Additional benefits of painting Coro: For non UV rated or Corona treated Coro it help prolong the lifespan when used outdoors.

    I used to make, and paint cornhole boards, and as you can imagine, bleeding on wood is terrible. What I did was paint the entire board the main color you wanted and when you tape something off paint the edge of the tape were you want the different color to be the same color as the part under the tape. This will fill in any parts of the tape that might bleed under the, with the color that is under the tape already, so no worries. Then you paint the color you are wanting. Here is an example of one of the boards I did.

    Thanks,

    I figure it was appropriate, since this is my first year, and this is probably what I will hear from all the neighbors. I can only imagine the issue I will have...lol

    WELCOME aboard!!!
    ironically the first year (i had 510 channels) i did this i had virtually no REAL issues - other than unfamiliarity with the new boards. as time advances, your "vision" will expand by leaps and bounds and before too long your dream of what your yard "could" look like will exceed your budget.. VERY quickly!
    but the people here (well most of them anyway) are awesome and will go out of their way to share their experiences with you to help you along the way... this is my 5th year doing the DIY stuff for Christmas and it is SUCH an addiction.
    again, welcome aboard!

    Oh the dream far surpassed the budget before I bought my first controller. I saw pictures of lights dancing in my head from the first video I saw. I did research and tried to learn all I could for 2 years before my first controller purchase, but had no idea of the hardware that was out there and how much more learning I would have to do. I have found this is a great site with many helpful people, which in a hobby like this, it is needed, because a person could get over their head very quickly (that would be me). I am learning, but it is taking a lot of questions to get there.

    Ask away. No one person has all the answers. And every one can really only share their experiences. My experience with a particular board, vendor, or supply can differ from yours or someone elses. But in a forum like this. It is an exchange of ideas that makes it so cool.

    I sure hope painting coro works after what I did to my HolidayCoro tombstones, pumpkin bunch (4 of them) and singing pumpkin:

    IMG_2110.jpg

    Pumpkins are using the Krylon fusion for the base and then hand painted some black and green exterior grade paint over them for the features.

    The tombstones were a couple coats of an exterior spray primer then a few different types of the spray "rock" paints, some black exterior paint for the writing, and then a coupe coats of a clear spray to seal them.

    They've been only out for about 2 weeks (one rain storm), but so far so good.
