the biggest tip i can offer is get that blind as flat and motionless as possible. i made a special easel for painting them .. Make a top inset ledge for the top of the blind .. then i either used two sided tape to hold it down or painters tape to make a border outline. ... Peal the tape off slowly. .. Happy painting and good luck.
Laurel are you going to hand paint? or air brush? .. keep in mind if you have it face out side and it gets a lot of sun liight .. clear coat it several time to protect it from fading. I have an OSU Buckeyes painted blind in my laundry room going on 6 years and it is finally starting to fade a bit.
