How to Paint a Cardboard Box    Tip:  Brush the paint over the cardboard in a single layer, rather than going over the same area multiple times. This helps prevent the cardboard from becoming too wet. Allow the paint to dry for an hour or two, or until it looks and feels completely dry. Apply a second coat of paint if lettering or the original cardboard color is still visible beneath the base coat.
