now want to paint my new red/white oak board fence. TSC has a black beauty paint that has asphalt in it. They also have a black acrylic paint. Trying to determine whether to use one of these or something else? I plan to use a heavy duty sprayer to apply the paint. If I use the asphalt paint. I will need to thin it to get it
to go through the sprayer. Not sure about the
acrylic. If I use the asphalt what is best product to use to thin it. Tom

Painting a new fence will not work very well by just spraying it. The paint needs to be worked in the rough lumber. If you like black then one of the best things I have seen used is Asphalt driveway sealer thinned 50% with diesel fuel. Then roll or brush it on the fence. When I mean brushed on I mean with an old broom. You are not doing trim work here. Five gallon bucket and a broom just about half worn out will work great and is not really that much work either.

Every spray painting setup I have tried to use with any type of asphalt paint does not work very well.

I'd paint it with a 30% mixture of linseed oil and turpentine. Mix it good as the turpentine is just to get the linseed oil into the wood, and it sprays easily.....don't have to worry about holidays, or spots where some wood absorbs more paint than others making for a light spot.

Let it mature naturally. Fence will last a lot longer and you won't have moisture problems and a "needing painting" fence a few years down the road....unless you just like to paint pickets.

I do the same thing on pipe. Learned the trick at the DFW airport. Put up the fence and walk away. Before long nature will paint it for you in the most beautiful copper brown (earth tone, blends right in with nature) and keep it painted, nice and uniform every year at no cost. Doesn't hurt the pipe. Iron oxidizes forming a thin skin providing insulation between the steel and the environment.

I think I would want to let the wood fence cure for a year before applying a finish.

I too would lean toward exterior wood stain... seems like outdoor paints just don't stick real well anymore (even the oil based ones).

Do this. Wear old clothes cause the stuff will stick to anything and will. not. come. out.

Paint will not stick well to that new wood. Oak also rots pretty quickly. I would stain it or use lindseed oil.

No paint expert by a long shot, but just painted the floor in storage area we built inside the new shed. It was an oil based paint and the dealer said to cut it approximately 50% with paint thinner for the first coat. This soaks into the wood and provides better "tooth" for the top coat. Said not to use a primer with the new paints. Also said not to walk on the final coat for several days to allow it to fully dry. Waited 4 days after the thinned painting to roll on the top coat and only yesterday walked on it with sock feet to remove masking tape. Going to wait a few more days before putting stuff inside and really test it. Paint wasn't cheap, approx $40 gallon.
