Hi allI'd like to paint a wooden mirror frame for my daughter.Please can anyone tell me whether it's possible to buy a tester pot size of silver paint for this purpose? And do I just sand the frame and paint? <clueless> Thanks
Look at B&Q they have plastikote pots & spraysSpray might be easiestWhat is on the frame already?
KatyMac - it's currently a v old fashioned glazed pine frame. However, it's large and in good condition so I thought I could give it a new lease of life.I've seen plasticote and if I tape it off carefully- spray would be good as you suggest.
They recommend Brilliant Metalic Silver for a mirror frame - fantastic - question answered, thanks!
If it is pine & factory finished (ie very hard varnish) you might struggle to sand it enough for it to 'key'Try this if you can't get a good surface
Goodness me, that looks amazingly labour saving! Thanks Katy!
