    Hello Everyone!

    I have the (possible) opportunity to paint a mural on a gymnasium wall (yay work!) and I am looking for suggestions on what paint you all think would be the best to adhere to the wall? Here are some parameters:

    1) The wall is a primed cinder block wall. I currently do not know what it was primed with, I am currently seeking that information.

    2) The paint must be durable as basketballs/athletic balls will be bounced against the wall.

    3) I am mostly sticking with just a few colors, probably black, white, gray and maybe a red.

    4) There isn’t much room for ‘testing’ so I’m jumping in a bit blind.

    My instinct is to pick an exterior grade, flexible. high pigment paint such as Benjamin Moore Aura exterior paints, but I would love some feedback on what all you intelligent people think! I have also used Ben Moore Aura paints before and feel comfortable with how the color and material acts. Thanks in advance for the help!

     

    Cheers to all!

    Jamie-

    Sounds like a great opportunity.  Best wishes on getting the work. You might get some of the best advise directly from the manufacturer, or a local representative.  I’m thinking you might need an epoxy-type paint for durability.

    Good luck and stay safe and healthy,

    Bill
