Bought 2 gallon cans of Valspar ext latex flat paint. Had it colored deer green for my new deer stand I build. When got ready to paint it smelled like piss. Like some one hadn’t cleaned the toilet for days. Now what can I do to rid smell?

This is a reoccurring problem with some manufactures. If the smell doesn't go away, you might have to prime (2 coats) with shellack primer and repaint with a better paint.
