My grandmother recently acquired an old statue of snow white for our backyard. The paint it really chipped and I want to repaint it. My only problem is that I'm not quite sure what kind of paint to use. I have tons of acrylic paint but i don't know how that will stay on stone. Any suggestions?

It will stay if the statue is not handled much. But the sunlight will fade the paint. They do have outdoor acrylic for flower pots.
You will have to sand down the old paint and probably primer it. You can also use a matt sealer spray or glossy if that is your taste.

I do that acrylic is annoying stubborn on bricks ( I learned to keep them way, way , way up on a shelf from two year olds Cheesy
