I need to find paint in several colors that is weatherproof. I will need only about 8 ounces of each color. What paint do you recommend?

    Love your idea! Check at your craft store. Ours (JoAnns and Michaels) have some weather proof paints. A hardware or big box store would have weather proof, but not in smaller containers. Lowes and Home Depot have some small containers you can buy to check paint before you do the whole room, but have not seen weather proof there.

    Hi Kathy they make outdoor paints in both oil based and water based. Personally I would buy the oil based (like Rustoleum brand) it takes longer to dry and is kinda pricey but it has always LASTED a lot longer for me.

    Good Afternoon Kathy Manis Findley, Well, not knowing what type of material will be UNDER the paint (metal? wood? plastic? ceraminc? etc) I am not sure what to recommend as far as paint brands are concerned, especially as I look at the piece you are showing here which screams to me: "Hand-painting only" (eliminating brands that come only in spray cans, unless you want to spray them into a container from which you can hand paint your piece). Might I suggest (because I truly believe it) that if you had a good sealer it wouldn't matter if you even used acrylic paints, or whatever paint would be best for the material you are painting on. THAT being said I have a link below to a sealer that I believe would do that trick for you (after looking through several links of various types of sealers). Perhaps someone else will see your query and be able to give you a better answer, but this is what I would try. Thanks for asking Hometalk for direction in this matter, and good luck to you. The photo you posted in absolutely lovely!

      Also if you’re working on a metal you could do a flat coat of spray paint so it will paint easier

    Even outdoor paint will wear away. Best is to use craft paint and seal with a spray marine grade polyurethane or clear glaze. I just made a new address plaque that i sealed with three coats of Rustoleum clear glaze to weatherproof it.

    There are outdoor paints that are very good. You can get these at Jo-Ann's, A. C. Moore, Michales. They are 8oz bottles.

    Look into Plaid brand paint made for outdoors.
