Paint for an outdoor corn hole game

I had a corn hole gameboard built for me and now I am ready to paint it in decorative designs.

Given that this is played with bean bags being thrown at it, what do you suggest I use for paint? Exterior? Acrylic? I don't want it to chip.

Also, should I protect it with a shellac over it?

I would think about quality reinforced floor paints. Ben Moore's have urethane for the oil and epoxy for the waterbased. They may only come in gallons though.

Otherwise, I guess I would use a bonding primer/sealer. Do your detail work with artists acrylic like Liquitex or sign painting alkyd like 1-step, depending on whether you want to work with oil or waterbased paint. You can get either in small containers from from your art store.

Protect with a 2-3 coats of urethane or epoxy reinforced clear coat. The only problem is the coatings may chip over time being bombarded with bean bags so keep an eye out and plan on maintaining the surface. I guess a silicone reinforced clear coat or marine or basketball court coating could work to but one will be more expensive. Less prone to chipping though. Shellac is not an option.

Have fun!
