python cage paint .. help

Postby AM-Rock python » Wed Jun 04, 2014 12:52 pm


Built a new enclosure today. Was wondering if I could use ' champion plus acrylic roof paint '. The enclosure is for a burmese python of about 3.5m. So would this paint be safe to use ?

It should be fine, as long as you let it dry properly and let all the fumes escape after you've finished the paint job. (The fumes should escape after about 2-3 days if the cage has lots of ventilation.)

Road paint also works well, but again make sure the fumes have escaped.
