I want to paint the tank cover and part of the base of a standard white commode to glossy black. It's a small area; so I'm thinking the easiest way would be to mask-off the parts to remain white and use an aerosol spray to paint the black areas. I would like to avoid using a primer like B-I-N shellac because I doubt that I could apply it while maintaining the perfectly smooth surface of the commode. I would like to be able to use either an aerosol primer then an aerosol paint OR just an aerosol paint that would adhere properly and have the required durability. I'm guessing durability would mean an epoxy paint. I've heard of PJ1 Fast Black Porcelain Hard Epoxy paint (http://www.jpcycles.com/product/900-660?utm_source=PLAs&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=&device=c&network=g&matchtype=&gclid=CJqtl4LgmLsCFe87MgodrV4ALQ), but I don't know if that would adhere to the porcelain. Any suggestions?
toilets are a glazed china (unless you're in state custody, in which case they are stainless steel, and you can't have paint.) one interesting phenomena of ceramic glazes is they don't hold paint well where you intentionally put it, but accidental drips will stick like stink on spammers.
the question is best asked at a geniune paint store that also sells professional coatings, such as Sherwin-Williams or another factory store. you could also post your question for a corporate expert on the Sherwin-Williams website to see if they recommend anything that can be applied by the DIYer. there may be catalyzed coatings that will work, but they are definitely NOT DIY materials. as in, you need a supplied air respirator and so on.
sig: if this is a new economy, how come they still want my old-fashioned money?
