I've been trying to search the forums and research as much as I can but I still have a few questions. Here's my situation, I've been commissioned to paint a sea mural on a client's new wooden fence (100+ sq.ft.) here in Southern Florida.
I've done my fair share of murals on med to smooth interior walls before but this is the first exterior one I've been asked to do. Due to the uneven nature of the fence I've been seriously considering airbrushing it. However I'm a bit at a loss for what medium to use for color pay off and durability.
I fear thinning exterior latex to pass through an airbrush would degrade the binder to the point of no return and the paint wouldn't stick or last??
Secondly what is the difference between fluid acrylics and manufactured airbrush acrylic paint?
How much coverage do you feel those tiny airbrush bottles give you?
Am I better off to just buy light body acrylic and reducer and make my own airbrush paint. I assume it would be more cost effective?
Any ideas or thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
