Is it reasonable to think that a painting done with artist's oils ( on an mdo properly primed board) will withstand the weather and sun exposure with several, 5, coats of uv protection, archival spray varnish? Is there another better product? The project I am working on will be installed outdoors 6 months of the year, hopefully to last several years. Thanks so much!

I believe testing has already been done on mdo board (to assess its appropriateness for outdoor use) and it has been determined to be fine. It should be painted both on the front and back (meaning both primed and painted....obviously the back can just be a single color). As to your question related to coatings, 5 coats sounds like a bit much, however it would be helpful to know more about the possible brands you are considering as we may be able to reach out to our industry contacts to find out more. Also is this to be displayed 6 months on and off on a rotational schedule? If so this should be considered more like a sign painting and should probably be treated as such.
