    I would think paints like solagard or weathershield would be perfect, I take it it is already painted.

    Exterior water paint will be OK regardless of what paint is there already. You will need 4L per coat guesstimate.
    Are you going to practice a camo paint using leafs? That would be something I always wanted to do
