Subject: Paint a Box Van
Question: A friend of mine is interested in having someone paint a masterpiece on his box van. We're not exactly sure what is the best paint to use for this (Krylon seemed like the cheap way out, but we could be wrong), and he needs to budget for supplies. Also, is there a good sealer for a box van (daily driver plus long trips from Washington to Arizona about once a month)to protect the art? Like polyurethane or something? Obviously prepping the van includes sanding it; is there anything else we should budget for? THANKS!
AP Reply: Sure! You can use Krylon. It will be runny, no caps will work on it, and will fade in the Arizona sun. Or you can use a quality paint like Beat, Belton or Clash and have a mural that will stand the test of time. These paints brands are very resistant to fading and will handle the elements for quite some time on their own. If you wish to protect them further then I would recommend using a water based sacrificial clear coat (aka hater repellent) to protect it from the errant mischief of ADD riddled youth. Call us for further info, and ask for dan. 206-365-4083
