    <P style="MARGIN: 0px">plenty of good aresols on the market. you may want to use a vinyl/cloth</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">type of aresol paint for additional adhesive over the burlap.</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">another good method, that works on burlaped blocks is automotive gravel know, the textured stuff under the paint of the lower 1/3 of your</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">car/truck. This is available in aresol form, drys fast, can be painted over, and</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">will simulate a "Restle" type deke without all the mess . Some manufacturers,</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">like 3M for example, the texture will vary from relatively smooth to very coarse.</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Yet another method, that works great on making "blacks" is a product made by 3M called "body shutz", its a black, hard, fast drying, &amp; extremely durable undercoat. This too, has an aggresive texture, like the Restle blocks of yesteryear. Both of these methods will prevent premature wear of the burlap</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">or styrofoam blocks &amp; add the texture you may be lookig for, without comprimising durability.</P>
