Thread: Paint inside a vivarium?

  1. #1

    Default Paint inside a vivarium?

    Is it safe to spray paint background and pots, etc. for inside a vivarium as long as it is allowed to cure? Are there any limitations on types of paints (i.e., Krylon, Rustoleum, Plastic paint, etc?) and how long should it be allowed to cure?

    The consensus is water based acrylic paints, provided they say non toxic on the package. Some colors use metal derivatives to get their color so you want to avoid those. Acrylic dries in hours.

    Spray-on polyurethane varnish is terrarium safe. It usually cures overnight and can be used on the acrylic paints.
