Spray painted furniture Ayrshire
Craig certainly needed to have the Midas touch on this project which started by creating samples and sourcing the correct products for the job. The client asked Craig if he could turn their bedroom furniture into something magical. So with that in mind and the style of furniture they had, he broached the idea to them of metallics.
These metallic products can only be spray applied with HVLP (High Volume Low Pressure) spray equipment. The products are very unforgiving if not applied correctly.
Following several samples to find the correct paint finish and colour, the clients were unsure at first. The decision was made and it was decided on a real metallic deep gold from a specialist paint supplier… Craig set to work!
Preparation and primer
The intricate preparation involved removing most of the existing coat, using dust free sanding equipment, elbow grease and shear determination. This is the nice part after all that hard work… for a painter, there is nothing more satisfying then when you start applying the primer.
Two coats of Otex high adhesion primer from Tikurilla specialist paints supplier was applied, this was tinted to a yellow ochre to give depth and a good yellow base, to allow the gold finish top coats to be applied.
The high adhesion primer coats were de-nibbed between each coat with a fine flexible abrasive, hovered and tacked off to remove any traces of dust before the top coats are applied.
Three top coats of a specialist metallic gold paint were applied, de nibbing in between each coat and a further two coats of a water borne protective Kiva lacquer from Tikurilla were also applied to add durability to the previous applied metallic coating.
With contrasting warm, natural oak flooring, wooden architraves and skirting. The clients wanted a dramatic back drop to their bright metallic gold ornate furniture. Therefore Craig also carried out the re-decoration the the bedroom using Tikurilla anti-reflex paint to the ceiling and two coats of Tikurilla ceramic matt in black, to the walls.
I’m sure you will agree this is a striking looking re- decoration project, using a variety of specialist paints and testament to Craig Hainey’s diverse and talented skill set. Craig is based in Troon, South Ayrshire and covers the whole area of Ayrshire and Glasgow. See more about Craig here
