I am going to have a go a re-enamelling our bath with a home kit, it's beyond help so figure I have nothing to lose but also want to paint the underside in a colour - can I do this with regular paint or does it need to be a special paint? So it looks something like this:

I feel clueless on this project.

My mum did this - think she used normal paint. Looks lovely, hers is light pink smile

Normal paint. Use a good primer like zinsser bullseye (two coats). I did my acrylic rolltop in F&B Print Room Yellow (Eggshell) and it looks fab. Use a smooth mini roller and do several light coats. I think I did about 4 coats to get full coverage.

May I ask what home kit you are using for the inside? We have a bath are considering re emamelling and don't know where to start.
Thanks, and love the colour on the link.

Tubby is what I'm going to use Ted. They have a ton of colours and good reviews... Just hoping it works!
