And fish all of the pooled paint out of the recess that fits over the valve stem.

And how's that any better than just buying an aerosolized paint?

big enough to have brush marks show very much. With an acrylic latex put a wee bit of Flood Floe-Trol and the brush marks totally dissappear.

Airbrush. It'll use half a *thimble* full of paint -- less than would get *stuck* in the bristles of a REAL brush (or drip off the work)!

I'm going to talk to an artist friend who just did an "outdoor installation" (lots of vivid colors on 3D objects) and ask her: - how long she expects the colors to hold up (being in the sun in a public space 24/7/365) - what she used to ensure that longevity

I suspect it is related to the actual color. E.g., neighbor's house was "chocolate brown" -- and perpetually faded! Another neighbor has a rich teal -- similar problem.
OTOH, folks with more muted colors don't seem to have as dramatic a difference, over time. (faded beige?)

fades paint. Automotive clear coat is generally UV resistant, and is the reason newer vehicles with 2 stage paint don't fade nearly as fast as older single stage paints.

There's a better solution. The Sun is the main cause of fading. We must unite and petition the government to destroy the sun. Nasa has the ability to send a rocket to the sun, filled with nuclear bombs. The sun will be blown to pieces once this rocket explodes.
Once the sun is destroyed, we will no longer have to worry about fading paint.
If however, you own stock in solar energy devices, sell your stock before they launch the rocket, because it will soon be worthless!

Buy spools of ribbon and tie a different color to each bibb. When the ribbon fades simply tie on a new one.
