How to Incorporate a Wooden Chair Gold

If you are painting a seat gold, then you probably need a metallic impact; you can attain that best by spraying, rather than brushing, then the paint. Aerosol cans of gold enamel or lacquer are easily accessible and they are simple to use. You will find the best results by preparing the seat with several undercoats to prevent the wood grain from interfering with the metallic effect. A black undercoat functions best, and you need to use the same type of paint as you are applying for the top coat. Because coats of lacquer bond together, it is preferable to enamel for this objective.

Ready the seat by stripping off any old paint using a chemical stripper. Spread the stripper using a paintbrush and scrape it off using a paint scraper. Use stainless steel wool for paint from crevices. Neutralize the stripper with water and let the chair dry.

Sand the seat using a palm sander and 120-grit sandpaper. Use a rotary tool with a sanding drum attachment to mud in corners and crevices. Finish-sand by hand with 150-grit sandpaper, rubbing with the grain of the wood. Wipe the seat using a damp rag to remove sanding dust.

Wear a respirator; open doors and windows to ventilate the work place.

Spray one coat of lacquer sanding sealer from an aerosol can over the entire seat to seal the grain and raise it. Knock the grain down by sanding the entire seat by hand together with 220-grit sandpaper if the sanding sealer dries, which requires about 20 minutes.

Spray three or more thin coats of black lacquer, allowing each coat sanding and dry it by 220-grit sandpaper. The lacquer builds up over the grain to make a more legitimate metallic impact, and its black colour provides a visual counterpoint for the gold topcoat. If you are painting an open-grained wood like oak, then you may want to build up the undercoat using 10 or more software.

Spray a thin coat of gold lacquer and let it dry. Sand it gently with 400-grit sandpaper, then squirt a second thin coat. You might be satisfied with the finish following two coats but, otherwise, spray and mud as many times as necessary. Don’t sand the final coat.
