Well I think it is resin. Dont know where I got that idea or word, but it is a common fountain with a pineapple on it. Just plain grey. Can I paint it? If so with what kind of paint? It is not cement i know that. Just what everyone has.

    Bernice, do you have a photo of this wacky pineapple fountain?

    Yep, here is the wacky pineapple fountain. As I said , it is not cement, just a common , not very expensive fountain my son bought me years ago. I had hubs drill holes in the dish part so I could plant something in it. But I want to give it some color first.Then maybe portulacas?

    I can't really directly help you, but if you take these photos to a good paint store, like a Sherwin WIlliams, they can give you the right product, I expect.

    Bernice H., I've used acrylic paints on resin sculptures for the yard, and the color/paint has held up beautifully. You can purchase it from hobby/craft stores. Additionally, they sell sealers with these paints (water base) in satin and gloss; take your pick, if you wish a little extra insurance on your project.

    What about Krylon spray paint....I have used it on several things in my garden.
