Painting antique brass fireplace trim to Satin nickel?
I'm doing some updating and our fireplace has very nice custom glass doors. Thing is the trim around it in antique brass. Its not smooth brass its bumpy like a hammered look. Any thoughts on painting it with a rustolium hammered nickel paint? Is there maybe a better way to do this? I like the doors just not thee color of that trim. Thanks
Rustoleum hammered finishes are one of my favorites. I have not seen it in nickel. Gray and silver yes, but not nickel. You mentioned satin nickel which is a smooth finish. I do not believe you can achieve a smooth finish working over a textured finish as you have now, plus if you use the hammered finish it has particles in it that create the hammered look.
I prefer to use the spray, two light coats covers well. Are you able to do this outside?? Protect the glass with tape and plastic, spray, wait for whatever time the label tells you before handeling and then reinstall. I have not used the brush on product but as long as you apply two THIN coats you should be good to go.
