  1. Find a spot outdoors and cover nearby items with drop cloths or old sheets to protect them from spray mist.
  2. Hold the paint can 12” from the surface. Press the spray button and begin covering the surface in a steady back-and-forth motion, slightly overlapping each stroke. Apply directly over rust.
  3. Apply 2 or more medium coats at a moderate speed. For best results, apply multiple light coats versus one heavy coat.
  4. Let dry overnight.
  5. Hang your new and improved lighting for guests to enjoy.
