do you do commissions???Martin
Not really Martin, but its not that hard to do a neat job! You just don't rush it.
is the paint just air dried or have you had them in the oven
I was trying to get my good lady to let me use our oven to harded some enamel of the other day
Her reply in not for repeating on here.paul
I did end up in the bad books! as I turned the household heating up full! Turned the thermo' switch to full temp' and then turned all other rad's off in the house!
The sole kitchen rad' was so hot for a purpose? The pedals were to sat inside a foil covered box on the rad' and by christ did the paint stink, must have baked
the pedals on and off for five hours then the wife came in the house shouting ''What the hell is that smell & are you mad'' she jumped when she touched the rad'.
Did you use any primer or did you just spray the enamel straight onto the metal? Also, what sort of clear lacquer did you use, presumably another rattle can job?
The reason I am asking is because I am about to respray an old frame and thought that this may give a better, more durable finish than cellulose car paint.Thanks
On the can it says no primer is required just as long as the surface is clean/dust free/rust free
so I just ensured there was no corrosion and the surface with even and 'keyed'! the finish of the
paint is fantastic and the best i've used out of a rattle can and is defo' Enamel as it took some
10 hours to fully cure and the smell of heated Enamel is unforgeable to the nose.
After I sprayed the pedals and applied the decals I gave the pedals another coating of some
clear Enamel which I have from my own stock of Enamel paints.
The ALDI paint is called 'Scratch Resistant Deco Style Colour Spray paint'
It cost me £3.99 for a 400ml can and comes in Black-White-Yellow-Blue-Red-Green colours.
I reckon this type of paint will do a good quality job at re-spraying a frame but remember
to have some sort of jig to hold the frame before you start to do any such spraying.
I hate RED DWARF
