How to Spray Paint Gold

Guide on how to spray paint your items gold

1)      Find the right spray paint- Before you start your start, you’ll have to find the best spray paint for your project.  This will differ for everyone; you might be looking for a gold that has a lot of sparkle/shine or a gold that comes with a pink undertone.

2)      Prepare your space- After you have picked the perfect spray paint, it is time to prepare your space.  If you are spray painting small objects such as knobs for kitchen cabinets, you’ll probably be able to complete the project inside.  But if you are spray painting large objects, you might want to go outside.  Spray painting can produce harmful fumes in your home.

3)      Read the instructions on the can- You should always read the instructions that are on the back of the spray paint bottle.  The manufacturer might also provide tips and tricks on how to properly use the spray paint and what you can use it on.

4)      Use safety precautions- You might want to wear protective eye wear and gloves when you are spray painting.  When you use protective eye wear, you don’t have to worry about paint getting in your eyes.  The gloves prevent the harmful paint chemicals and/or fumes from the paint from seeping into your skin.

5)      Spray away- Finally, it is time to spray paint your objects.  Try to use even strokes and avoid going over the same spot too many times.  You can spray paint one layer, wait for it to dry, and then spray paint a second coat.  Make sure you wait the appropriate amount of time for the spray paint to dry.
