Floor paint?

Posted by dirtwoodj (My Page) on

This may not be the best place to post this question, but i couldn't find a better spot...

anyway, I just finished building my new shop/metal building. It's 60x90 so I have plenty of room for a basketball court:).
I got a nice rim and backboard and mounted it to the wall. Been shooting hoops like a mad man! So fun!
I was thinking it would be very cool to paint the court lines on the floor, free throw, three point line, etc.
I found the dimensions online and even some stencils for fairly cheap. I have one issue...
What kind of paint do you guys think I should use?
I found "garage floor paint" at the big box hardware stores but it only comes in white and grey... I was thinking green to match my building's trim :)...
The floor is concrete.
Any input would be appreciated. I don't know much about paint.
Sorry for the long post!

You might want to consider using an epoxy paint. You can do many different colors and it will never peel off or flake.
