How to paint lead

Painting unprotected or unpainted lead will seal the substrate and prevent it from causing harm. Here we show you how.

Steps

1. Surface Preparation

All surfaces must be clean, dry and free from anything that will interfere with the adhesion of the materials to be applied. Remove all visible signs of organic growth and treat the areas with Zinsser Mould Killer in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Allow to dry.

2. Priming

Prime overall with one full coat of Bulls Eye® 1-2-3 Primer Sealer in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Allow a minimum drying time of 1 hour in normal drying conditions.

3. Decoration

For interior projects decorate with two full coats of Perma-White® Interior Matt/Satin/Semi-Gloss in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Allow a minimum of two hours drying time between coats.
For exterior projects decorate with two full coats of AllCoat® Exterior Satin or Gloss in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Allow a minimum of one hour drying time between coats.
