  • HI!
    What is the best paint to use on bee hives? Which are obviously exposed to rain snow and sun so need to be water – (proof?) or heavily resistant, AND not have toxic fumes for the bees.
    So what paint, and then what Varnish would be best for this project?? Thank you!

    • Hi Bija,
      Thank you for visiting my acrylic painting site. You can use any exterior house paint, as long as you only paint the outside and not the inside, it will be fine. You can also use acrylic outdoor paint, here is an example of some from Amazon: DecoArt Americana Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paint. Also use an outdoor polyurethane like: FolkArt Outdoor Sealer. Read the labels to make sure it says outdoor or exterior. Let it air dry a little for the fumes. Also it’s best to use a lighter color as opposed to a really dark color so it won’t attract so much heat in the summertime. Have fun with your project!
      I wish you the best!
