Painting outside PVC pipe. What Paint?

Brown to match the house.   Seriously though it has to be oil based. I've never tried water based exterior and I would think you have to create a key for water based rather than the oil based which I have applied just after a wipe down to clean off any dirt.

Use an exterior gloss paint, no undercoat.   These drain pipes are the typical blue plastic ones, painted 7 years ago.   Certain places are favourite spots for birds to rest, but their crapping hasn't damaged the paintwork.

Yes, oil paint.

Can you buy oil based spray tins of paint, like at Global House?
