Paint for small concrete/wooden fence posts

Recommended Posts

Could anyone give me an idea of which colour paint to use for small concrete and wooden fence posts, the type with four wires running through them.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Wooden fence posts usually weather to a greyish brown tinge when they've been subjected to sunlight for a few years, while concrete posts start off as basically light grey, but then get colonised by  lichens, which can be pale blue-grey, greenish yellow, or even orange or red. A good way to reproduce this is to paint the post grey, then lightly  dip an old toothbrush in a suitable weathering colour paint, point it at your parts, then pull a coffee stirrer or similar towards you so that tiny spots of the paint are flicked at the job.. This can look quite effective with a little experimentation, but beware of flicking paint where it's not wanted!
