Hi, I'm a newbie here. I have some uniquely painted old wooden doors that I'm thinking about using outside as eclectic art pieces in a woodsy part of our property.

I might bury them in the ground partially or lean them against trees. What can I use to protect them from the wet ground and abusive wind and weather?

I don't want any haze or cloudiness from the product so that the bright paint colors will not be altered? I really don't want them to be damaged in any way.

Is this possible????? Thanks so much. Sandy :tongue_smilie:

I am sorry, but I hope you do not leave in a populated area. I cannot imagine what any neighbors would think of the looks of that.

I highly doubt that there is any way to totally protect those doors from the elements.

You could coat them with two part epoxy. used on boats and outdoor applications. Get the non-blush type.
It would still need UV protection of some sort!
And it would be non removable. When it went
bad, it would be over.

Other than building a UV safe glass case that
was gas filled or something, I really don't think
there is any way to do it.
