I'm about to finish off my crypt. I'm going to use a sea sponge and a few different colors for a faux stone effect. I'd rather not buy a bunch of cans of exterior house latex paint, so...

I was wondering if craft store Acrylic paints are ok in an outdoor environment? I used some glow-in-the-dark colors on a wooden sign last year and they seemed to survive ok.

I hope they are, as I have a few different containers of Decoart Americana Premium Acrylic paint around the house that I'd like to use for this.

Zombie..
you should be safe with the Acrylics..they use them for outdoor murals also.
It does dry quick though.

I have a family member who uses the Decoart for painting T-Shirts and terracotta pots. They seem to survive the washing machine and potted plant ok.

You could always pick up a can or two of spray spar urethane or regular spray Poly. A quick coat does wonders.
