How to paint a metal radiator


This video shows how to paint a radiator using Zinsser perma white. There are three separate radiators in this video, one is in a bathroom, which is rusty at the bottom. This radiator is sanded to remove the rust, then treated with a rust convertor before a coat of Zinsser cover stain is applied, then two coats of Zinsser perma-white are applied. The large radiator has been painted previously, so this is painted using Zinsser 123 as a primer and then two coats of Zinsser Perma-white. The other small radiator is painted using just two coats of Zinsser perma-white tinted to a magnolia colour. For all the painting a quality Purdy XL brush was used, even when painting the rusty radiator.
