I’ve gone water based on my window splashes.
I put down a white primer base coat and then use
Behr brand acrylic for the colors.
Mack Brush company has some brushes that can
be used with water based paints.

I have been using interior eggshell enamel from Benjamin Moore. Layout a white base coat with a 4” roller then come back in with your colours. A double coat on the base can really make your colours pop!

I switched to Sherwin Williams paints after all the other window color suppliers dried up
