How To Paint Antique Brass Kitchen Faucet
Antique brass kitchen faucet over the years can fade and decolorize, but if the crane is still in good condition, you do not have to change the entire crane. Rather, you can paint it so that it looks like new or match new colored decor in your bathroom or kitchen. The choice of color is yours and you can also paint it brass-colored to keep the original look.
Spray cleaner on antique brass kitchen faucet and handle, and wipe clean to remove dirt and grease. Wipe dry with a clean cloth or cloth. Apply target tape around the base of the fixture including around the base of the crane neck, brass plating on the bottom, and the basics of the handles. Remember to apply a piece of tape over the sink and the pipe in the faucet. Place old rags or plastic over the basin and all areas that you do not want to paint. Tear up rags or plastic with a measuring tape.
Take a scouring sponge or rough sandpaper and rub it over brass surfaces. You slip the surface down. Do not be afraid if you see scratches, stains and silver markings as this is normal. Make sure the surface is smooth before proceeding. Shake spray paint can and point the nozzle on the tap. Keep the nozzle a few inches away from the crane. Even spray crane covers the entire brass surface. Repeat with brass handles and brass cladding below the handles and with the antique brass kitchen faucet neck around your sink has this plating. Allow the paint to dry overnight. Remove all tape and plastic to complete the project.
