Bring a modern metallic look to your entryway with a pair of candlelit lanterns spray painted in Pure Gold. Let your creativity shine when you add them to your favorite blue dresser. 

PREP: Shake can vigorously for one minute after the mixing ball begins to rattle. Cover surrounding areas with a drop cloth.

APPLY: Hold can upright 8-12” from surface and spray in a steady back-and forth motion, slightly overlapping each stroke. Keep the can the same distance from the surface. Keep the can in motion while spraying. Apply two or more light coats a few minutes apart.

DRY: The spray paint is dry to touch in 30 minutes, to handle in 1 hour, and is fully dry in 24 hours. Recoat within 1 hour or after 48 hours.
