    I am planning on making a new backdrop for the Playa Desnuda branch, and I am thinking about using white masonite from Lowe's...how well does paint stick to it?

    You may need to be the "review writer" on this product. :)

    Since I have never seen white Masonite before, I have to ask, is it white all the way though or is it just primed or some kind of topcoat?

    It depends on what the white coating is, but I would argue nobody would be able to sell a Masonite type product that could not be painted, guessing it's probably primed with a paint that can be considered a finish coat for those not wanting to have to paint it... (contractors).

    Good point, especially if it's that famous contractor. You know the guy, "Mr. L. Bidder"
