Storage containers painted with FlexiDip After

  1. Find a well ventilated spot to work in and cover nearby items with drop cloths to protect them from overspray.
  2. Using painter’s tape, tape off a section of the outside of the storage container. Do not paint the inside of the storage container. FlexiDip has not been tested or approved for direct food contact and should not be used on surfaces that come in direct contact with food.
  3. Cover the half that you do not want exposed to the coating with a sheet of paper to protect from overspray or flip container upside so the opening is not exposed.
  4. Apply FlexiDip to the surface. Hold the paint can 8-12” from the surface. Press the spray button and begin lightly covering the surface in a steady back-and-forth motion, slightly overlapping each stroke.
  5. The first coat should be applied very light, with 50% coverage. That means that you can still see about half of the bowl through your first coat of paint.
  6. Apply 5-6 light coats, waiting 2-3 minutes between each coat. The more coats applied the easier the coating is to remove.
  7. Remove the painter’s tape from the surface while the final coat is still wet.
  8. Once you’re finished, display your custom storage containers. When it’s time for a new color, simply peel away, clean and recoat. It is recommended to remove coating within 3 months of application.
