Postby barbara356 » Mon Nov 02, 2015 11:27 am

Hi!
I want to decorate my old wooden morror frame. I will paint it in pastel green color and then I will paint some flowers on it.

What type of paint can you advice me for this work? The paint should dry fast.

thanks.

Well, I decided to use the spray paint. Sellers from the local hardware store adviced the Krylon paint. But I hesiate. https://www.mrosupply.com/search/?q=spray+paint
Has anybody used this paint?

As for the decor, I will take usual acrylic paint.

Hi

On looking it seems like it should be suitable for the job, but having never used it I cannot say for sure.

Additionally, I have never undertaken a project of this type before but if I was to then I would go with a spray paint to get a nice smooth finish and I may also consider using a paint from Plastikote (such as these here: http://www.diydoctor.org.uk/DIY-superst ... aints.html ) as I am aware that others doing jobs such as this use these paints.

You should then be able to use a similar paint for your detailed areas

Hope this helps
