The Rack – Painting Day


One good thing about hot, sunny weather is how fast you can paint. Today’s the sort of day I can prime, undercoat, and topcoat in about 20 minutes. Unlike filling, painting I like.

Got up early to paint, and it’s already done. I decided to go for a matt silver finish. 2 coats of primer and 4 undercoats, plus a topcoat.

Having a break now, and while the frame sets I’m going to start polishing off the acrylic. I’ve purchased a polishing wheel attachment for my drill, with some metal polish. More to come today…
