Need exterior paint in 'pints'


Just got a heavy duty wooden bench, raw wood, that will be outside.

I want to paint it blue with yellow fish. Tried looking for exterior paint in pints and nothing. I'll prime then buy a qt of blue exterior. I guess I'll have to use what ever is available in yellow in pints. I'll probably use another color in a pint.

Then A final coat in a sealer to protect since the pints probably won't be exterior paint.

See how much I've learned on here!

Did you pick the color and asks the person in the paint dept. to mix a pint?
Often times it's in the pint cans marked light, med, or dark base and just needs to be mixed to your color.
Main reason is they sell far less pints so why have them all premixed and never sell them because there the wrong color

I haven't seen them just in samples and they aren't meant as finish paint and I have never seen them for ext. If that is all you need make a stencil and use rattle cans.

At the SherwinWilliams store I frequent, I've gotten "sample mix" paint in quarts, for $7.00. Granted, that was interior paint, but I suspect they'd mix exterior as well.
