Magnetic paint is the ideal solution to give your interior a creative touch. You can make almost any material magnetically. A memo table in the kitchen, a presentation wall at the office or a creative wall in the nursery are just a few examples of the many applications.
WHAT IS MAGNETIC PAINT AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
Magnetic paint makes your walls wider. Adhesive tape, thumbnails, glue or other fasteners are past. From now on you can hang everything with magnets on the wall, leaving the wall undamaged.
Magnetic paint consists of a special composition of water-based latex primer and minuscule iron particles. The particles are stainless and so small that you can not perceive them with the naked eye. These are non-rusting iron particles that keep magnets hanging on the wall.
APPLY MAGNETIC PAINT
Magnetic paint can be applied to various materials including wood, plaster, concrete and plasterboard. In principle, you should prepare the substrate as with other wall paintings . This means that the surface must be clean and slippery. When applying a suction substrate such as MDF, apply a primer first to avoid losing magnetic strength.
To have a strong magnetic wall you will need to apply sufficient layers of magnetic paint. A minimum of 2 layers is recommended . If you have a strong absorbent surface or if you want to make sure your magnetic wall works well, then you better choose 3 or 4 layers. With 0.5 liter of magnetic paint you can cover an area of approximately 6m². For a wall of 2 to 3m (6m²), you will need 2 to 3 liters of paint when you want to apply multiple layers.
MAGNETIC PAINT PRICE
This paint can easily be purchased online. For a small pot of 1 liter magnetic paint you pay an average of € 35 (depending on the brand). The range of magnet paint and the magnets, magnetic letters, … that you can use on the magnetic wall can be found in the web shop.
This paint is only available in gray color. It is possible to still paint the layers of magnetic paint with a finish in a color of your choice.
Note that you only apply the magnet paint to a part of the wall and then completely overlay it. The seams of the piece with magnetic paint will then be clearly visible because there are multiple layers applied there. To avoid that, choose a striking color finish or paint the entire wall with magnetic paint.
Do you want it even more creative? Then work the magnet wall with a paint brush so you can write on it. You should keep in mind that the power of the magnetic paint can decrease due to the additional coverage. Test whether you have applied enough layers of magnetic paint by hanging multiple layers of paper with magnets. If everything stays beautiful, you can paint the magnet wall with a restful heart.
