Transform Your Radiator With This Pro Painting Technique
1. Protect the Wall
Take double-sided tape and place it on the outer corners of the radiator.
Ensure to leave a gap between the tape and the radiator, as this area will be covered with plastic and prevent any excess paint from seeping onto the wall.
Once the tapes are in place, attach the plastic sheet to them, ensuring that the areas behind the radiator are covered to safeguard your wall from paint splatters.
Our man’s radiator includes a built-in mirror at the center. If your radiator is like this, ensure to cover it as well. He opted for double-sided tape to effectively protect the mirror.
This tape is highly recommended as this does not leave any residue.
2. Prepare the Surface
Start by sanding the surface of the radiator to create a rougher texture, which will enhance the paint’s adhesion.
For optimal results, it is advisable to start sanding the radiator surface with 60- or 80-grit sandpaper.
Wipe away any debris left from sanding to achieve a clean surface.
3. Paint the Surface
It is essential to use paint specifically made for radiators because it can withstand the heat emitted without affecting its functionality.
For a more convenient and efficient application, consider using spray paint. Our man chose a black radiator spray paint from Polar Coatings.
Be sure to mix the paint before painting and wear a mask for protection against any harmful chemicals present in the paint.
He started painting from the bottom and gradually worked his way up, ensuring complete coverage. Additionally, it is essential to paint the sides of the radiator to achieve a consistent result.
4. Remove Tape & Inspect
As the last step, our man gently removed the tape from the mirror and the wall.
Behold the impressive result: no stains on either surface! His radiator displays a captivating matte finish that beautifully complements the surrounding space.
