Hi, all! I am new to this forum, but I was told there were mural artists here who could help me.

My mom has commissioned me to paint a mural on one wall of her metal backyard storage shed. I don't know what type of paint to use, what kind of protection to give it, etc. What is going to last, and how should I go about preparing it and protecting it while the process is ongoing?

Thanks so much for any help you can give me! Each thought is appreciated!

Hi,
Well because its a metal shed clean it well..then prime it with a primer compatable with the type of paint you are going to use..ie: water base and water base..oil base and oil base.....as far as sealing it go over it with a good outdoor varnish.......I know its expensive but the varnish one would use on a boat is one of the best outdoor sealer..it can take the abuse of weather elements..ther are a few brands..just shop around
