Magical Rescue

We were all taught in 7th grade about methods of preventing oxidation and rusting of various metals and iron.So I thought why not apply that technique to pieces with a high chance of spoiling?

Spray painting is honestly a life saver!

I’ve very often used spray paints as they are very easy to work with.But this time,I used it as a renewing method.

Bring back life to your old show pieces this Diwali.

Here’s a way to brighten up any oxidized metallic articles to bring back their shine!

I hope this may help you renew and rescue oxidized piece you don’t wish to get rid of.

And a very happy Dhanteras 🙂

Notes :

1.Make sure you are working in a very well ventilated area.Outdoors are perfect as closed places may leave a sticky residue after spray painting.

2.Wait for the first coat to dry completely(which should take about an hour) as it gives a better even polish ,before you spray a second coat.

3.Maintain a distance of about 15-20 centimeters between the article and bottle nozzle.This helps coat the article uniformly.
