Painting on Silicone


The one is from the outside and the other from inside..
when the mailman puts boxes on my porch, this helps block anyone from seeing them from the street. I had vinyl taped to the gate but wanted to put something better on it... and this is the solution my friend told me to do... he lives in another state so not here to help me... so he figured I could handle this one without too much trouble.
and he said to spray on Kilz before I paint...

thanks
Barbara

Painting on Silicone


I describe 5200 as the best and worst product ever made.
If you get it where it needs to be and use it what it's made for it's great.
Get it where you do not want it good luck trying to get it off.
It was made for sealing under water thru hulls in boats.

Someone did a you a huge disservice suggested 5200 for that job.
I never ever would have done it that way, but I would have at least primed and painted before ever installing that panel.
No way would I have ever tried using an adhesive, 6, screws and have been done.

why not suggest something useful instead of telling the poor woman all the things YOU would have done to do it right, that is of no help now

If you have access to a miter saw---you could add some trim to the face and back that would cover the caulking----just a suggestion---

There are paintable exterior trims available in the Home Depot.

Painting on Silicone


thanks Chrisn.... I only did what a friend told me to do that would be fairly easy for me to handle. He's 800 miles from me so couldn't do it for me.

The more things I do on my own, the more I learn. I use the internet and research things and that's how I found this forum.

I try to do what I can on my own before having to hire someone and along the way, what I do might not be perfect, but if I can make it work, I'm okay with it. I will try to spray on the Kilz and see if it will cover so can paint it all black.

I learned if you get some of this stuff on your hands, you can't wash off with soap and water...even if you try to wash it off right away.... alcohol takes it right off...
I did put weather proofing by Behr's on it before I glued it to the iron gate.

thank you

Painting on Silicone


Thanks Oh'Mike. this is true... and I've never been afraid to try something if it is something I think I can handle. I'm 68 years old so there is a lot of things that is hard for me to handle alone, but I will try if I can and I do make mistakes along the way...I like doing what I can.... I just did my kitchen cabinets and countertop.. they aren't perfect but they look fairly good and made a big difference in my kitchen...
So am thinking if this Kilz and paint don't cover the white adhesive... I'm going to make it look as if it belongs there by adding to it as a design... and after thinking.. might go that way anyway... it would be different

have a good day
Barbara

Most KILZ primers are for INTERIOR use only. The CoverStain is what you want in this situation. For that small amount of adhesive that needs primed, a spray can or a quart is all you need to buy:
