If you have to brush it, get a quart of the thinner for the paint you purchase. Get a few pint and quart mixing cups as well. Use a pint cup to scoop paint from your gallon can to a quart cup. Mix in ten percent thinner to your quart cup. Brush your project with as few brush strokes as possible. Another words, don't keep going over the same spots. The thinner will slow your paints dry time just enough to allow the brush strokes to even out.Should end up close to a sprayed look.Might have to adjust your thinner a small amount for heat and humidity.4 screws and the saddle comes off. Clean it up and overcome your fear of doing a Krylon overhaul!
Whys that? How long should I bake it for and what does it do exactly? Would it be safe to use the oven we use for eating?If you go with Rust-Oleum grey, which is what I did.
Bake the part at 200F for a day after painting.
That is awful.What you're doing is driving all the VOCs out and forcing the paint to quickly harden. My procedure (on any regular paint) is to place the item in the oven in the kitchen for two hours at 150F. At the end of the two hours, I just turn off the oven and let the parts cool down in the oven. Once cool, the paint has hardened enough to be able to reassemble as needed.
Rustoleum rattle can enamel takes a long time to dry, your choice is let it sit for 2 weeks, or bake it, and even then its just not very durable. Oil based paint dries faster, in summer a couple hours its dry to touch, a couple days for a good set, and overall seems more durable, at least in my experience.Thanks! Does it matter what rustoleum is used? Oil, Enamel, both?? haha
