I've used Rust-Oleum Painter's Touch Ultra Cover 2X. I really like this spray paint because of the extra coating adding a shiny surface.

Hi Lepus,

Sorry that some of the paint peeled off. Now let's see if we can figure out why. Perhaps a comparison of our methods will help.

For the black mirror, I used a non-glossy finish black paint which cost more compared to the others in the store. I chose non-glossy because the glass is shiny enough. I believe the brand was Krylon Dual. If memory serves, the paint wasn't for rust protection. I made sure it was good for glass and other surfaces. I sprayed the back side of the glass, covered it up with cardboard and folded down the clips from the frame. End result, a shiny front that can be cleaned as normal glass because the surface is glass and the paint is protected by the cardboard. This is the backside of my mirror.



On the altar tools I used the same brand you did but with a satin finish. It combined paint and primer. As for dusting them, they haven't been around long to collect dust but when they do, I figure wiping them with a dry lint free cloth should work. Or I'll use my bare hands.

I followed the instructions on the label from the paint can and made sure the surfaces were clean. For cleaning the glass, I used 99% rubbing alcohol because it doesn't have oil in it, to get rid of smudges before spray painting it. The altar tools looked clean enough so I spray painted them as they were.

One idea as to what might have happened to your glass is that your paint didn't have a primer in it. The other possibility is that Florida Water has oil in it which prevented the paint from adhering to the glass.

I hope this helped.

Hello

Thanks! I was looking for a spray paint after purchasing a standing picture frame to set up on my Hecate's altar. I really like the design of it with a silver frame. The glass is oval and it's not too large. I went on several stores to find a black spray to not only spray on the glass but to paint my wand and my human rib athame. Yes I legally purchased a human bone. I was recommended on the ultra cover 2x. And I began spraying outdoors when the sun was out. I liked the outcome of it. I could see my own reflection when starring at my black mirror. However, I wanted to cleanse it and keep it clean. So I used Florida water. And that's when I found out small scrapes on the glass

My frame does have a cardboard to support the glass. And it can hold my picture frame from falling down with a back holder. So it's standing on my altar right now. I was thinking of painting another coat on my black mirror and have it covered with a piece of cloth to prevent it from getting any dust or dirt. I will substitute Florida water with rubbing alcohol. And I will check out the non-gloss spray paint.

I believe my spray paint does have primer in it. It says on the label.

Lepus

When I was examining the altar plate for any white peeking through, I was gazing at one area and saw four colours: red, green, purple and blue. My intuition told me that Morrigan was once more guiding me and I got to thinking what those colours symbolize but am not allowed to mention the symbolism. I can say that they symbolize certain subjects that I'm to learn under the guidance of Morrigan.

I did find some white on the bottom of the plate so I gave it another coat of paint. I have white cardstock paper to take to the library, in a few days, where I can run off images of animals to place at the end of the arms of a Celtic cross. So far it's coming along the way I'm imagining it.

Earlier this week, I bought labels for the black bottles and got those done.



I have a bottle of water and a jar for the salt ready for the full moon on June 17. If it rains that night the salt and water will be protected from any rain getting in.
