Spray paint not sticking
 
I am trying to repaint all my interior doors with a high gloss rustolieum spray paint. I do a very light sanding first then I use a matching primer before I spray but it is not sticking. It scratches off very easily. Does not take very much to scratch both the primer and the top coat all the way down to the original painted door color. What am I doing wrong?

products?

also it takes 30 days before curing a fingernail scratching after a couple hours will go through any paint

This is after nearly 3 weeks later.

Try a good primer first.

Which one are you trying to use?
Most of the Rustolium pants are not for painting wood there for painting metal.
Are you trying to just use spray cans for this? Not a great way or very cost effective to get a nice even paint job on a door.

What is the best way to paint a bunch of interior doors a high gloss?

Rent a sprayer if you really want to spray the doors. Using rattle cans will take you years to complete a few doors. Personally, I like the tried and true standard of using a mini-roller and a brush. You can knock out doors pretty darn fast this way and you will be sure of getting a good bond to the wood. With practice you can get a mirror like finish on those doors. Take them off the hinges, set up some sawhorses, lay them flat, and do one side at a time. For primer I would actually recommend an OIL-based primer and then topcoat with a quality gloss paint like SW's Proclassic.

Oops, just read that they were painted before......no need for an oil primer......a quality bonding latex primer should suffice.

Personally, I like Gym's suggestion to do the mini roller and lay off with a brush. If you do this, don't start out with a dry brush; wet it with the proper solvent (Water or mineral spirits) before you begin, shaking off the excess liquid. This will help in not making it looked like you used a whisk brrom.

High-gloss paint is very attractive, but is is very unforgiving. It will magnify poor preparation and application. It takes alot of practice and skill for it to come out properly. Whatever application method you use, practice on a similar surface first.

I use a foam roller not a fabric one. Comes out smooth as a babys butt.

renting a sprayer is not the sloution, it actually WILL take years to learn(IMO)

I think I am going to use steel wool to pull off what I painted and to rough up the doors. Then use a wood primer and then use paint and a small roller.

What are your doors made of?

Did you wash them and then wipe them with a solvent such as acetone before painting?

sspryte 11-21-2012 08:47 PM

They are wood. I did not wash and wipe them but I did make sure there was no dust or anything on it.
