Default Paint for Fiberglass? Laundry Sink

My wife wants to make our laundry room sink easier on the eye and would like
to paint it.

What is gonna stay on that surface and tolerate the abuse, physical and
chemical, that the large (~24"x24"?) receiver of our biggest cleaning jobs
receives?

Thanks

There are paints that will adhere well to fiberglass. Add in physical abuse
and chemical your looking for something that is unknown to me.

Boat shops have the kinds of paint that may survive, but the color choice is
limited. Prices are a bit much, so take your better half along to see how much
budget strain she can stand. Good luck.

There are a few color choices.


It's a Fiberglass sink (see header).

Klenks makes a epoxy paint for fiberglass tubs and sinks.
