Step by step how to paint the window frame
Make sure the surface is clean and dry with no rotting wood. Sand the frame with sandpaper. Do not use any cleaning products with silicone or wax as this impedes paint adhesion . Warm clean water should do the trick.
Mask off the area using masking tape and paper or cardboard. Make sure all the glass is covered and any wall area that might catch overspray.
If you have an aluminum window frame, you need to apply a primer. Give the wood an even coat of primer to help the paint to stick. Once the primer has dried ( about one hour) you can apply the Pintyplus Evolution spray paint. Once you hear the mixing balls when you shake the can, mix for a few seconds.
Use thin even coats when spraying. Two coats normally cover well. The first blast of spray should be directed at the masked area so you can control the distance and firing pressure of the spray paint. Remember when you are finished spraying, to turn the can upside down to clean all the paint from the nozzle. Just turn and spray until there is only gas coming out of the nozzle.
Finally, apply the varnish coat. Then remove all the masking tape and paper.
