considering re painting black with white will it work. saw answer that said first coat vertical second horizontal then third coat more critical as it is finish coat--any suggestions to making this coat look better one direction spraying same as second same as first -other suggestions/
Answer Joe, Make sure you wash down the unit thoroughly, you may want to use a strong chemical cleaner, like TSP, especially around the handle areas. Make sure you use a medium grit sandpaper and "rough up" or dull the original finish, then wash it all down again. Use a "tack Wrag" and wipe down the unit just before you start to paint. It doesn't matter which direction you start at (Vertical or Horizontal) but you don't want to be too close to the cabinet, and you need to move relatively quick. You want to first coats to go on more like a "powder" coat" and wait 20 to 30 minutes to allow the paint to "flash" before you start the next coat. After a few days (3 to 5) then "hand wax and polish" the finish with car polish. Just take your time and be patient, color changes can be frustrating.
Is this black paint high gloss? How many cans to do a range hood 42" x 18"?
Answer Rich, the spray paint 285006 is listed as a superior black. We do not have the specs to verify if this paint is a flat black or glossy black. You will need approx. 2 cans to ensure the entire hood is coated properly. Thanks.
How many cans of the black spray paint will it take to cover my white frigidaire refrigerator?
Answer Beth, If you do this right, you'll need three 12 oz. cans of paint. Wash all the exterior surfaces with TSP, (Tri-Sodium Phosphate), rinse well with water. Sand all the surfaces with a medium grit sand paper and wipe all the surfaces with a "tack wrag". Apply the first coat of paint with a side to side motion and allow 30 to 40 minutes to "flash dry". Apply the second coat of paint with an up and down motion and allow the flash dry. These two coats are "base" coats and don't have to be "perfect". The next coat is the finish coat, so it does have to be "perfect" so take your time on this one. Good Luck and Thanks
