I’m making children’s building blocks, and would like to paint them but can’t think of a quick and easy way to do it. Painting, controlling drips, putting somewhere to dry, etc for the number of blocks I’ll be making, I can’t think of a way to do it without taking too much time. Wiping a stain and finish on then wiping it off will be quick and easy, but some bright colors would be good if I can get there without too much work. Any suggestions for either less-hassle painting, or some easy-apply colored finish would be great!

I once made a “BED OF NAILS” from a piece of thin Masonite and a series of four penny finish nails. The number of nails their centers and the size of the Masonite sheet will depend on the size of the pieces and their number. The points of the nails, which are facing up will support the piece, or in your case pieces, without doing any or very little harm to the pieces or their finish.

Your finish should be non-toxic.
