Default Pet Safe Paint?

Hi there!

I'm thinking of turning this, which I already own;

http://www.zooplus.co.uk/shop/small_...4639?rrec=true

into a little trio of mushrooms!

I've been looking around for pet safe paint and I found this, it's non-toxic and water based.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Crayola-Was...on+toxic+paint

Would this be suitable? If not, do any of you know any paints that are? Thanks!

I don't know how safe that paint would be tbh also I think you would have trouble painting the bark parts of the wood unless you were planning on stripping that off or something?

Cypher; I was planning on stripping it off yes, can you recommend any paint which is completely safe?

And thank you Gimley!

Water based plastikote is the only safe paint I've used myself, there is another some people have used but I can't remember what it is right now, sorry.

The other thing to think about is that without the bark & painted it could be a bit slippery & hard to climb on, you could try mixing sand into the paint while it's wet but I've never been able to get that to work somehow!

Ah, good point, I didn't think of that! I'll have a ponder and see what I can come up with, but the sand sounds like a good idea!

Cuprinol garden shades is pet safe. I have used it for hamster shelves, houses and wheels. Comes in loads of colours too.
