We sell three sizes of lacquer lined steel paint kettles (5”, 6” 7” diameter) normally as supplied – the steel colour but we have painted them to show off our range of colours. They’re made to order for us and far more sturdy and rigid than the spun aluminium round bottomed ones. They’re also far more stable and less likely to tip over which is why they’re very popular with decorators.
The painted ones make lovely little presents – put a plant in for example – and they can be left outside as they won’t rust.
To get a good finish, we’d recommend two coats of a Primer like Zinsser Bulls Eye 123 and then finish with Hicks & Weatherburn’s Water Based Eggshell or our Oil Based Eggshell or Gloss finishes.
We can supply a 750 mls tin of the Water Based Eggshell or a 1L tin of the Oil Based paints which is more than enough for several kettles.
