Proper paint for mailbox??
I see that there is another mailbox question, but it is unanswered, so I will try again .
I have a mailbox that has a shiny enameled finish, factory done, (just your average hardware store mailbox) and I want to paint designs on it. Actually, it is a project for my children, so I really want to see their art work last. I see so many painted mailboxes around here with the paint all flaking off, so obviously some kind of prep and the proper paint is essential. Could anyone help with this? Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
