Re: Preparations for shower tile painting

Hi @MitchellMc @EricL 

I am looking to do a very similar project to the above in my bathroom. Given that the entire Rust-Oleum range is out of stock online and across Bunning stores (it may have been discontinued?) are you able to please suggest an alternative that can achieve this result?

Thank you

Laura

Re: Preparations for shower tile painting

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @Laura7. It's wonderful to have you join us, and many thanks for your enquiry about the Rust-Oleum tile coating system.

 

It appears that the Rust-Oleum Tile Transformations Tile Coating System is in stock at many locations. However, I apologise as it is not currently available for Click & Collect or delivery. I'll reach out via PM for details of your location to check on stock availability.

 

There are no other products suitable for use in a shower stall as our other tile paints are not suitable for this type of high humidity environment.

Re: Preparations for shower tile painting

A quick update on the shower painting, which I felt worth sharing as a caution for prepping this kind of project. 

 

I have discovered some of the paint has started to come off the soap tray area. It makes sense that I might have encountered issues in this area as it was the spot where a lot of soap debris gathered previously, and I clearly didn't clean it/sand it well enough for the paint to affix. So I guess the lesson is, really work on those spots that collect soap! I wonder if there was some other product I could have used to clean those surfaces better, or rougher sandpaper?

 

Anyway, now I'm considering how to address this problem. Can't really justify buying a full rustoleum kit for a touch up... Given it's a soap tray, I considered whether there is some kind of surface I could stick over the soap tray (like an anti slip material?) which would hide the defect and also be a practical addition?

Re: Preparations for shower tile painting

Hello @Chris_T

 

I'm sorry to hear that some paint has peeled off near the soap tray. I suggest trying Dulux 1L PRECISION Maximum Strength Adhesion Primer White to touch up the affected area and spray the top with White Knight Squirts 310g Clear Gloss Spray Paint to give it that shine. Unfortunately, this is not tile paint and will not last as long as the Rustoleum kit. When the repair finally peels off, you can then put on a new coating over the area.

 

If you need further assistance, please let us know.

 

Eric
