Step 4: Glue it together and prime it. Use nuts, bolts or screws to attach all the wood parts to the vinyl. Glue wood to wood parts together using Elmers wood glue. As a primer for the first coat use Golden’s GAC 200 which is a molecular bonding agent, it protects acrylic paint from chipping off vinyl. Then put on 3 to 5 coats of gesso primer.
