I'd use a brush and save a lot of mess and paint - a tap handle usn't
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

Airbrush. It'll use half a *thimble* full of paint -- less than would

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?)
Or just topcoat with a UV resistant clear. It's usually the UV that
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
If however, you own stock in solar energy devices, sell your stock
before they launch the rocket, because it will soon be worthless!
