yes i think if you coated it with a non toxic varnish to seal that would be ok,

slt is right
I used varnish / stain on my 125 and never had a problem. I have used reg. marine paint for the backs of atnks with no problem. Mainly depends on the quality of the paint.
If you got some good paint that will not run or start to come off if wet. You should be fine. But to be safe I would as slt suggested and varnish or clear coat it to be safe.
