I never thought I could improve on Buddha but in this case I think he's been remarkably improved. Oh
Buddha grey paint you are the saviour indeed!
My friend's partner, who is Buddhist, brought Buddha back from overseas - I think Dubai. It's made of some sort of resin, My friend just hated it - so white, so gold - and asked me what could be done with it. I suggested painting because, as you know, I think paint
fixes everything tones things down.
I stated hand painting in ASCP Graphite but the folds of the statues gown were too difficult to get my brush in and it was all taking too long.
So I decided to spray it. I found a spray can in my shed of galvanizing zinc rich primer - this primer doesn't actually need to be sealed and can be used as a top coat. It's such a gorgeous matte finish that doesn't mark with touching like a lot of paint does. Very high performing. Two coats sprayed - so quick and easy. God knows what I originally bought it for, possibly some rusty old garden furniture or maybe left over from our house renovations but it's been put to good use now.
I never thought I'd say it but I'm pretty sure that I improved on Buddha!
My friend can make peace with him... or hide him among the plants in their garden.
