Is This Paint Safe?

Just for painting the background exterior..

I'm getting mixed messages about what spray to use.

I just painted on plain old water based cheapo craft paint. Worked nicely and came off well when I decided I needed more light. If I didn't want to be cheap I'd use a water based acrylic enamel from a good paint store (high end trim paint).

So I bought some blackboard spray paint, mainly because it was £3!
And it's fine to use on glass, all I have to do is try to be gentle and not scratch it.

I'll probably have a go at spraying after college on Wednesday.
