Re: Paint Question
I would think laquer base would not be durable given the abuse decoys get. I know when I had a 68 Camaro That was repainted with laquer base paint I had to garage it to keep it looking good. I would think there are better more durable choices .Cut and pasted below description
Lacquer based paint was a popular type of paint from the mid 1920s to 1960s. It was typically used to cover hard wearing surfaces like auto bodies and furniture. Lacquer paint is difficult to work with and requires sanding between coats and about four to six coats on autos. This is still found and commonly used by many. These paints are soft and do not have many chemicals. Thus, they are not durable and long-lived. This is why an antique car with an original paint job will appear dull rather than glossy. This paint is available in aerosol spray containers as well as spray guns.
