With Stops Rust Textured Metallic spray paint, you can give any planter a high-end look without breaking the bank. Here’s how to give your flower pot a spray paint makeover in a few steps.

  1. PREPARE: Always work in a well-ventilated area and use a drop cloth to protect from overspray.
  2. PRIME: Shake your can of Universal Bonding Primer for one minute after the mixing ball starts to rattle. Then, holding the can 12” away from the tub, spray in a steady, sweeping motion, slightly overlapping each stroke. Apply two or more light coats of primer to the planter.
  3. PAINT: After you’ve finished priming, shake your can of Stops Rust Textured Metallic spray for one minute after the mixing ball starts to rattle. Next, hold the can 10-16” away from the planter and spray in a steady, sweeping motion, similar to how you applied primer. Spray two or more light coats a few minutes apart until the planter is completely coated.
  4. FINISH: The paint will be dry enough to handle in 1-2 hours and completely dry in 24 hours. After 24 hours, add flowers to your new metallic planter and enjoy!
