I want to paint my stairs, but I can't find "floor paint" in suitable colours.

Can I use another kind of paint, and then give it a protective coating?

What kinds of paint/protection would be compatible?

    A hardwre store or paint store should be able to mix whatever color you like starting from white (or "base") floor paint. – Ecnerwal Nov 7 '20 at 22:27
  • If these are exterior concrete steps you are just creating a maintenance issue since the paint will flake off over the years. What kind of stairs are these? – Ted Mittelstaedt Nov 8 '20 at 7:19
  • Interior wooden steps. – spraff Nov 14 '20 at 13:18

You can get floor paint in a tintable base and have it tinted to the color of your choice.

Rust-oleum has an option as well.

Sherwin Williams has an option as well.

  • I only need small amounts of multiple colours, so mixing at a hardware store isn't economical. – spraff Nov 14 '20 at 13:19
