Clean the frame thoroughly; the surfaces must be clean, dry and free from any dust or greasy residues. Cover the glass with paper and masking tape, making sure only the frame is exposed. Cover the work surface. For better adhesion, first apply a coat of edding Universal Primer. If the frame is made of plastic, we recommend using our Plastic Primer.
Next, spray the frame using long horizontal and vertical strokes at a distance of approx. 25 cm from the mirror. Even those hard-to-reach areas are easy with an edding Permanent Spray can. Leave the paint to dry thoroughly – 24 hours is ideal. Once it's completely dry, carefully remove the masking tape from the glass, and your shabby chic mirror is ready!
