  • Tools & Supplies:

  1. Clean surface and allow to fully dry.
  2. Tape off the area you would like to paint.
  3. TIP: Stir paint thoroughly before and regularly during application to ensure paint is consistently a smooth, dark gray color.
  4. Apply one coat of Rust-Oleum® Specialty Magnetic Primer to the wall. Apply a second coat after 30 minutes. For best results, apply three thin coats instead of two heavy coats.
  5. After allowing paint to dry for at least 4 hours, apply a top coat with your color choice of latex paint.
  6. TIP: Create your magnetic space low enough on the wall that children can enjoy using it. It's perfect for tic tac toe and spelling games.
