Answer:
Yes as long as it's not got a glossy finish as the paint will not adhere and will just wipe off. You will then need to seal the acrylic paint with a suitable sealer like mod podge and then apply a clear gloss varnish for extra durability. Both of these items available through art suppliers. Hope this is of help to you.
