I don’t reccomend paint. Most paint is designed to breathe so as to not trap moisture under the surface it’s trying to protect. If you can’t find a suitable log end sealer locally then you can buy parrafin (like Gulf Wax) from your local grocery. You can find it in the canning section. It has to be heated before application – but be very careful as it is very flamable. Beeswax, if you can find and afford it, is the ultimate sealer- better than everything else.
