Instant curb appeal is what you'll get when you refresh your porch railings with fresh paint. Stops Rust provides a long-lasting, durable finish that can withstand the weather and wear of normal railing use. 

PREP: Protect all surfaces you don't want to paint with a drop cloth and/or protective plastic sheeting. Remove any loose rust or paint with a wire brush. Stir paint gently with a stir stick.

APPLY: Use light, even strokes. Excessive brushing reduces film thickness and protection.

FINISH: Dries to the touch in 2-4 hours, to handle in 5-9 hours, and is fully dry after 24 hours. Re-coat after 24 hours.
