I have a student who is currently working on a mural for the outside of the
Girls softball dugout. It is concrete block and VERY assessable to the
extreme ELEMENTS
of Michigan's weather. He is working with high grade acrylics and I was very
concerned on the "permanency" of his work (and it withstanding possible
cleaning from vandelism). We called the paint store (experts) in our town
and they recommended a sealer called Creatone (not quite sure about the name-
but sound something like that). I paid $33 per gallon (ordered 2). Check
with your local paint experts- they were very helpful for us. I looked for
this stuff at Home Depot but they don't carry it- only the paint stores do.
Let me know if you need that name - I will look it up in my files at school.
