I have bought white paintable in-wall speakers.
I would like to spray paint them now, but I'm worried about the paint
clogging the grilles. Any word of advice here? Like, spray from a few
more inches away. Or move across more quickly to achieve thinner coats.
Or, don't do it!
Many thanks in advance,
I spray painted with a latex (thinned the first coat) and went over it
ever so slightly with the air gun attachment on my compressor right
after. The holes opened right up and the result was ' factory'. I
would assume a can of compressed air would do the same.
I'd use Krylon or similar, not house paint fed through a sprayer.
I've had to spray paint some metal speaker grilles while restoring old
cars (think of the ones in the middle of the dash on 60's and earlier
cars) and yes you do have to be a little careful about not getting the
paint on too thick, but if you get any filled holes, you can take a
toothpick and poke through them.
replace "roosters" with "cox" to reply.
A spray can is your best option as long as you find the color you want.
If you want a certain color, most paint stores carry a "Prevail" spray
bottle with compressed air and you fill will your paint. If the speaker
grill is metal I would not use a latex paint unless primed with an oil
based primer first.
