Read this on another site, after a tip from Tally.
Regardless of the clearcoat, white paint will yellow, beacause of
the pigment used to make it, exposed to direct sunlight, over a period

If you use wood (stirrer or toothpick) to mix epoxy I have heard that it will leak (oils?) into the epoxy and that will cause yellowing.
Not sure if it's true since I use plastic all the time.
Best of luck.

If your white paint is UV stable.
And your clear coat is UV stable.
They will not yellow.
Used to mix this in a plastics that were for out door use.
Chemical Plant I had time in added it to there building finishes.

I knew that....just trying to liven things up around here. I would be willing to say that Auto Air paints have UV inhibitors in them...havent read...but they are for automotive use. The craft paints.....now that is another story... uros and laquers as well should have uv inhibitors in them. Gel coat on truck tops was not able to be sprayed in a form to prevent fading..that is when they switched to painting the fiberglass tops. Now they stay pretty nice for quite some time. Same reasons fiberglass boats left outside fade or chalk. I did just see a Ford truck while I was at lunch..... it was a yellowish white. darndest thing I ever saw.... had a Devcon sign on it.

I'm having trouble, my yellow baits turn white in the sun.

I got some of that pigment one time, Terry. It is sold as yellow but is actually blonde. It actually bleaches out in the sun. And the white is not actually yellowing, but tanning. SPF of 15 or higher will cure all these problems (except for rusting Chevy sheet-metal).
