Paint over MDF panels

Paint over MDF panels

Hi guys,

I have some MDF panels that were originally painted with spray cans..

The paint looks very patchy and I would like to paint over them..

They are large vertical parabolic panels and cannot be moved..

What would be the best type of paint to use to cover this.?

Re: Paint Over

Hi @Prof,

 

How long did the spraypaint last? Would it be unreasonable to re-paint with the same product?

 

The best type of paint to cover existing spray paint would be an equivalent product. If you were to use a primer like Taubmans 3 In 1 Interior And Exterior Primer Undercoat Sealer White Paint you could then switch and use a paintable product instead of a spray product.

Re: Paint Over

Hi Mitchell,

The spray paint has been done for some time now and it just looks very patchy..

Being matt black paint hasn't helped it either..

 

The Taubmans 3 in 1 Interior and Exterior Primer Undercoat Sealer sounds like the way to go..

So if I use that, can I just use a water based paint over the top ?

Hi @Prof,

 

You certainly can use water-based paint over the top. Depending on what these parabolic panels are I would recommend Dulux Aquanamel as it is harder wearing than wall paint.

Re: Paint over MDF panels

The parabolic panels are in my home theatre, so standard interior paint should suffice..
