Anyone know anything about "superpaint"?
I've had two conversations with guys who said that they used something

that was a lot better (sticks to less than well cleaned surfaces, lasts
longer, etc) than anything else that is normally available. I asked at
a local paint distributor and the low underling didn't know what I was
talking about, and the middle underling (higher up, but not at the

there is _fresco_
paint that will last hundreds of years (imagine
paintings on walls inside and outside of ancient buildings that are still
in good shape today, and that stuff is more expensive than your typical
