View Full Version : exterior paint for mural

06-20-2011, 08:44 PM
I'm doing a large painting on a few pieces of MDF plywood(sign board) to hang on the outside of a building. I haven't a clue as to what paint to use. I typically paint with oils in my studio, but I'm thinking I want acrylics. I did see a brand of exterior/mural acrylics on Dick Blick.
So what other paints are out there for exterior use?

Hello Josh,
Unfortunately, one of the best acrylic paints for outdoor use (Cal Western's Artistic Acrylic) is no longer being made. You may want to consider using one of the paints favored by sign painters, such as Ronan Aquacote or Famous 1-Shot. Their durability in an outdoor environment has been proven over many years. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.
