I'm new to stickmaking and I have carved a fish handle from lime ,I'm wondering what paint would be best for finishing the handle and what to use to seal it when painted.

Sorry not familiar have not used paint in the past on wooden sticks but probably should. Have used quite a number of stain finishes that have diff tints that have served well like danish oils etc. I have used paint spray on some other wood products that seem to be suited. Local brick and mortar will have some that say on can good for wood. I like the look of milk paint on light colored woods but on a handle would need to be sealed prob.

Good luck,

I don't do a lot of painting.  I painted a few with acrylics (the cheap stuff in the hobby section) and sealed with tung oil and they seem to be holding up.

Sorry for the late welcome.  I didn't see your post before now.
