Enamel on your precious font for relaxation cracked and began to peel. This leads to the idea - do not throw out such a difficult utensils? No, this is not the best option. Such a bath can be brought though not to its original state, but significantly improve its appearance, and moreover, to transform, painted in a favorite color. So, what color to bathe?
There are several ways that you canto paint a bath. Any of the methods will significantly update the bath, and most importantly, it will not be necessary to destroy its details, since all methods when applying will repeat the silhouette of the cast-iron frame.
- Acrylic liner. The most effective way. You order a liner in a special store that matches the size of your bathtub. This innovation is made in factories. Take an acrylic sheet, which is embedded in the bath. It will repeat the surface of the bath frame.
- Painting with enamel №1. This method is less expensive than the first, but the result can be seen only after 5-7 days. We need a solvent that will destroy the old enamel, fat, lime, and then merge as plain water. We pour it into the bath, mixing it with water. After the bath has dried completely, it is necessary to apply a primer that must dry. After that, you need to wash off all the remaining dirt, sand the surface so that no unevenness remains. Next, you should rinse the bath once more from the remnants of the process of working with the skin. After this step, you can apply enamel. Cover is better sprayer, not a brush. The applied layer should look even, otherwise, there will be bumps. In the sanitary ware shops are sold special kits for restoration, so if you decide to still update your bath, then first consult with a specialist. These sets include the necessary tools, as well as colors of different colors.
- Painting with enamel №2. The bathroom after the preliminary cleaning is poured with a layer of enamel instead of spraying, the remainder is drained off. Enamel dries also about 5-7 days. This method seals the bottom of the bath, and also ensures a smoother and more even surface of the bath than the previous method. But the strength and strength of enamel is worse than using the previous method. To paint the bath you need to choose acrylic paint, because it is better applied and long service.
