dont do it
you need to rub down use something like zinsser primer gloss paint then seal it twice  remember a bog seat is sprayed with lots off poo and pee you start rubbing that down and get a lung full off everything Shocked

painting a bog seat
Jul 17th, 2012, 5:39pm
 
I (and by that, i mean the other half) wants to paint the bog seat to match the decor in the bathroom.  i've got half a tin of emulsion left over in the right colour.  i tried painting it with a very short piled roller, and again with a brush, but i can't get the finish smooth enuf.  once emulsioned, i was planning to spray a couple of coats of clear coat.

if i water it down, can i spray waterbased emulsion thru a "normal" (not hvlp) spray gun?  or does anywhere make up spray cans by scanning your colour?
