Commercially up here, the mills use some sort of green or blue paint.
By it's appearance, I'll guess no more than latex/acrylic.
Of course, those guys are after what works and what's cheap.
I'll use any old latex paint, usually from the can that's in front of the others.

Anchorseal is, in my opinion, the best and easiest to apply end-grain sealer but for something you can obtain locally, you can use melted paraffin wax (from the grocery store) or aluminum paint mixed 50/50 with a varnish.

If there are any turning clubs in your area, you might check with them to see if they buy Anchorseal in bulk. I get mine from a local turning club for $10 per gallon.
