    I have a bunch of new cut Silo's that I need to paint. Never painted any before so have no idea what kind on paint to use. Can I get some suggestions.

    I imagine there may be more expensive and "better" brands, but I use Rustoleum flat enamel on any decoys I need to touch up / re-paint.

    Use rubber gloves or have some paint thinner handy as you will inevitably get some on your hands and it can be a pain to get off.

    I've looked into making a few silhouettes. There was some good info on working decoys.net...if I remember correctly, guys coat their wooden Decoys with spar varnish before painting.

    I painted my coroplast solos with the flat fusion, For the Rustoleum that is supposed to stick to plastic.
