Rust-Oleum® Magnetic Primer is a paint that can transform ordinary surfaces into ones that attract magnets! This paint comes in dark grey and has a matte finish, and can be used alone or covered with latex paint or Rust-Oleum Chalkboard Paint for a double-duty surface. It is suitable for interior use on wood, metal, masonry, drywall, and plaster. To ensure optimal results, always adhere to the instructions provided.
For best results
Thoroughly stir the paint before application, as the metal pigments tend to sink.
Constantly stir while painting so the pigments don’t start sinking. Take at least 10 minutes stirring and mix until it is smooth.
Utilize 3 coats of the primer to take full advantage of its magnetic properties. Allow 30 mins in between each coat.
Apply a maximum of 2 coats of latex or chalkboard paint atop the primer.
Use a dense foam roller, making up-and-down strokes that slightly overlap. Doing so will generate an even and polished surface.
