What type of paint is best for outdoor? Oil-based paints shrink less than latex and acrylic paints do, hold up in high-traffic areas and glide on smoothly. Oil-based paint dries to a smooth, hard surface and works well on porch floors, doors, trim and other small details.
What paint will last outside? Acrylic paint is the most durable of all. It’s long-lasting, flexible, and able to withstand fading from the sun or damage from rain and other elements.
What type of paint is waterproof? Epoxy Paint
Epoxy is a type of plastic resin added to the paint to create a rapidly hardening compound when it is applied to a surface. The resin forms a durable, waterproof seal that will adhere to stone, metal and other surfaces like concrete and cement.
How can I waterproof my outdoor painting? Spray the entire canvas, front and back, using Mod Podge clear acrylic sealer (or your acrylic sealer of choice). Make sure to follow the instructions on the can. Spray a second layer after the canvas has fully dried for added protection. And that’s it!
