Are you looking for a new hue for your wall lights? Sparks Sparks have a variety of light fittings made of plaster and ceramic light fittings that are painted to fit the interior style of your space or room.
They are known as “paintable lights” and painting these fittings will not void your warranty, as long as the technical parts are not altered by.
If you are planning to paint a specific wall light or ceramic fitting that you want to paint, you must consider certain aspects as they are porous materials and therefore there are some methods that should be followed for obtaining the best quality finish.
Painting your Light Fittings – General Rules
First, don’t paint the ceramic or plaster fitting as it is being fitted onto the wall. It is not advised as it can cause visible cracks along the edges of the item and could cause unwanted light leakage.
If there are dark marks or marks appearing on the ceramic or the plaster fittings, it’s suggested that you take them off. It is possible to do this either using a white clean eraser or a sandpaper of P600 grit (if they are more substantial). If you don’t get rid of the dark marks or spots and they appear in the paint.
Third: be cautious when handling the light fittings or ceramic components because these materials naturally soft and brittle. Take care when handling them.
Fifth: Mark off any electrical parts, like lamp holders, LED lamps, etc.
Sixth: once you have painted take care to remove the masking tape carefully and ensure all edges are straight and straight.
These are the general rules that should be adhered to regardless of the type of fitting you want to paint. We will look at more specific guidelines when it comes the painting of Plaster Lights and Ceramic Lights using either the spray paint finish or the Emulsion finish.
The Best Method for Spray Painting the Lights that Paintable
In the beginning, here are some best practices for spray paint finish on plaster lights, which is in the event that you want to spray paint the fitting of your light fixture with plaster:
Spray Primer: Apply two coats of wet high-build spray primer in white to seal the surface of the plaster.
Priming on the inside Primer should be applied on part of the area – this will make it easier to mask when you apply the colour paint.
Let dry Let it dry before applying your next coating.
Masking tape Masking tape: Use masking tape to block off the internal surfaces so that you can retain the original brightness, light colour and pattern.
Spray Colour Paint Apply: Spray the paintable wall lights (must match with primer). It is possible to apply multiple coats to get the desired finish.
Best Practices for Emulsion Painting the Paintable Light Fittings for the Lights
Primer: Apply a plaster primer for sealers, either applied by brush or roll. One coat is enough.
Let Dry Let dry prior to applying the top color coat.
Masking Tape Use masking tapes to cover any internal surfaces in order to keep the original light color, brightness and pattern.
Paint the fitting Apply the colour emulsion over the top of the fitting, which can be rolled on or brushed onto. If you’re using a broom, it could create a different texture. It is possible to apply multiple coats to get the desired look.
The Best Method to Apply a Spray Paint to Paint Ceramic Light Fittings
Take Sanding Marks Off: Remember that sanding marks on the ceramic surface might appear visible. Get rid of any deep sanding marks on the surface by using P600 grit Sandpaper.
Primer Use one coat of high-build spray primer to seal the surface of the ceramic. Ceramic is somewhat less porous than plaster.
Spray-Paint the Fittings Apply a spray color coating on the top (this is required to be compatible with the primer). It is possible to apply multiple coats to get the desired finish.
Best Practices for an Emulsion Finish for Light Fittings with Paintable Ceramic
Remove Sanding Marks marks made by sanding the surface of the ceramic could be visible. Take off any sanding marks that are deep on the surface by using P600 grit Sandpaper.
Apply the primer apply one coat of high-build spray primer to seal the surface of the ceramic. Ceramic is somewhat less porous than plaster.
Paint the fitting Apply the colour emulsion over the top, this can be rolled on or brushed onto. Be aware that if you’re using a broom, it could create a different texture. A number of coats are required for the desired effect.
