I have recently been transforming objects that no longer suit my decor with spray paint or metal paints to give them a new lease of life.
SPRAY PAINTING - getting started...
- Ensure that the area where you are planning to do your spraying is covered with dust sheets and newspaper.
- Ensure the surface of the object to be sprayed is clean and dry. Don't forget to sand off any existing paint or varnish or use a coat of primer in order for the spray paint to adhere.
- Apply lots of thin coats and leave each coat to dry slightly before applying the next. Drying time between coats is approximately 15 minutes so do ensure that you follow the manufacturers instructions because these times may vary.
- Leave to dry for 24 hours after applying the final coat to ensure the paint has adhered to the surface.
