Would anyone know if there is some product that can be painted onto a wall to make it magnetic. We will have a large column in our kitchen which i would like to use to display some photos, kids artwork and was wondering if I could magnetise it somehow (as we have run out of room on our frideg/freezer.
Is it even possible?

Hi - you can buy magnetic paint
I'm sure Bunnings have it, but our local Mitre 10 also has it. Comes in either a spray can or paint on. Usually near where the blackboard paint is for kids.

Dulux does one, I think its called Magic coat or something like that. Helped my mate do his kids room with it. Its like an undercoat (2 coats and you slap in generously) then there is a colour to paint over that (2 coats) and you have to leave to dry for about a week. If you are stingy with the undercoat stuff, then it wont be very magnetic (as we found out!)

Personally I would not bother alot of work for haphazard result
why not get a piece of stainless steel cut to size and framed hung on the wall ???
I went outside once. The graphics were alright, but the gameplay sucked!
