Painting Outdoor Decor

Welcome to another installment of ASK PLAIDIE LADDIE!

Plaidie Laddie, loyal Plaid pooch and one of our blog contributors, wants to answer your most burning painting questions. Every week he’ll pick a question out of his virtual mailbag and answer it (with a little help from me, since he only has paws). This week’s question:

“Dear Plaidie Laddie, I want to paint a centerpiece and maybe a few garden stakes and other items for my patio and yard. What paint should I use?– Holly M. from Texas

Dear Holly, thanks for your question! With the weather warming up everyone is spending more time outside, so why not decorate? For items that will be outside and exposed to the sun and elements you should use FolkArt Outdoor paints. FolkArt Outdoor has the rich and creamy texture of traditional FolkArt paints, but it includes a UV blocker and cures to harder finish. That means that not only will your pretty painted items stand up to wind and rain, the color won’t fade over time they way it would with traditional paint. Of course, if you’re going to experience wild weather we recommend that you bring outdoor items inside for safety reasons, but your project should be as bright and pretty at the end of the summer as it was when you first painted it.

Sincerely, Plaidie Laddie
