Painting inside of garage door


HI. New here. My goal is to paint the inside of my garage door an American flag.

I don't know much about what type of paint would be best and what prep work is required.

Also should i paint the 3 support beams and 12 hinges too? Right now they are a faded metallic metal look. I'd like to paint them but need to know if they require a different paint and what prep for them too.

Any advice or opinions would be appreciated. Thanks in advanced.

Hmmm...interesting
My Sis-in-law does murals and she uses acrylics
She prefers to go over a latex background with the eggshell sheen

That's about all I can offer

Though I wouldn't be surprised if you could find a digital mural of a flag to apply there rather then paint

Prime first with a gray acrylic primer like zinser 123. It will help with coverage of the red you will be using.

My mother in law also does murals, and she too uses acrilics.
The digital mural is a very good suggestion as well.

Here's an update on how it's going. Need one more coat if not 2 of the red. Then the stars need to be stenciled in. Took a quick snap of the progress. Hope you like it.
