I bought a lamp at a garage sale - great price, bad color. The lamp
is ceramic, glossy finish. I would like to paint it another color
using spray paint.
I have a nearly new can of Kiltz spray sealer, oil based, for use on
drywall, wood, metal and other shiny finishes. It is for covering
stains and stuff. Will that work as a base coat for what I want? I
could spray it on and after it dries, spray with semi-gloss finish
If that will not work - what should I look for. Thanks.
Kilz has a variety of primers, some for glossy surfaces.
I have used it on Formica, but not real glossy surfaces. Primer on
Formica for alky paint in a
bathroom worked very well.....no peeling or chipping.
Clear penetrating epoxy sealer or low viscosity epoxy sealer will
stick to just about anything. The only problem is in applying it, that
is, finding a brush that won't disintegrate. After it dries, you can
apply a sanding sealer, wet sand, tack off, then spray on an opaque
color coat. A lot of labor. Is the lamp worth the effort?
clean it with spray nine to clean it. try a new spraycan of killz,
lots of varieties are made today with different properties. the
sprayer head on your like new can may be clogged from previous use. or
it may run. maybe goggles and mask and outdoors on drop cloth tarp on
a windless day. allow sufficient drying time, see instructions on
