Carefully remove the glass from the lantern. It’s best to spray outdoors, with a large protective cover placed underneath. The item to be sprayed must be clean, dry and free from traces of grease or rust. Prime it first with edding Universal Primer for even better adhesion, an enhanced sheen and protection against rust.
We recommend using horizontal and vertical strokes when spraying to ensure a more even coverage. Even those hard-to-reach corners and edges are a breeze with a can of edding Permanent Spray paint. If you want to add a second colour, wait until the first one is completely dry before continuing with the next. Allow the paint to dry thoroughly before reassembling the lantern.
