What type of water proof paint can I use to paint a mural on the bow of my aluminum boat?
I want to be able to use a small brush if that can narrow it down a bit.. Thanks~

I painted mine with Rust-o-leum. It comes in a bunch of colors and sprays well. Just use a good etching primer, and it should last a long time.

Prep and Etching primer is key. After that any Enamel or DOM (Direct over Metal) paint would work.

Thanks for the advice! Can you get etching primer at hardware stores like Home Depot?

Rattle cans are available at Home Depot and most auto part stores. Kelly Moore Paints used to sell it in quarts ready to spray, but I'm not sure if they stock it or if it has to be ordered.
