    Default interior vs. exterior house paint?

    I'm gonna try screen printing with house paints, but I'm worried that the colors will fade. Seems like interior house paint wouldn't be UV resistant. So I'm considering buying exterior house paint (acrylic latex exterior). Anyone have any advice on interior vs. exterior house paint? (I will be printing with 200 mesh screens. Printing on 100lb. paper and on canvas.)

    Dunno ... i think ive been using mostly interior housepaint and the only thing thats ever faded was Krylon flo I used on a jucifer poster, but it was also mixed with a little Glow in the dark so that could have an effect too.

    Interior paint shouldn't fade. I think the main difference is that exterior has fungicides and other less-healthy stuff in it.

    But unless you're planning on getting mis-tints I'd suggest just spending a little bit more and going with Speedball. It will save you a lot of headaches.
