Untitled Gardening Project #82

After waiting for a full cure on the white paint (7-ish days), coat over the white using heavy black vinyl spray paint as a protective layer. Vinyl paint shrinks dramatically as it cures; use several very light coats to avoid a thick layer that can generate enough skin tension to pull itself up and away from the white paint underneath.

Vinyl spray paint is often sold as 'spray on truck bed liner'. It would probably suck as a bed lining (it's not nearly abrasion resistant enough; it just sort of looks like a real polyethelene liner would), but it's very durable as spray paints go. It's not nearly as durable as powdercoat, but it's much tougher than normal spray paint for those cases where powdercoating isn't practical. Like this one.
