In an attempt to find a simple answer, I purchased the Krylon spray paint which is basically a white-coloured plastic film that holds the Krylon primer, in large sheets. However, I find it difficult to cut it and put it in the small plastic containers it comes in and so, since I’m going to have to use this as a base coat instead, I’m going to cut the Krylon spray paint in smaller sheets. I find that the smallest container works reasonably well though and makes a fairly good masking paint for the masking tape.
To remove the masking tape, first take a sheet of masking tape and line the top edge of both parts of it with some masking tape, making sure not to completely cut the tape. Cut the masking tape to the required width as shown above. Using the masking tape on both sides of the masking tape, run a small, flat, pencil-topped saw-blade over the masking tape. Make sure you have the masking tape flush with the masking tape. Next take the masking tape along the tape, creating a long, thin strip of masking tape just past the edge of the masking tape.
Take a razor blade and trim the strip of tape, just past the edge of the masking tape. Then cut the strip of masking tape a little longer, just past the edge of the masking tape, and trim it to about 1/2″ width. Now run the razor blade through the cut strip of masking tape.
The result can be seen below.
Now we need paint to use as a final coat. I use Krylon spray paint with a thin coat of Krylon primer applied to it at about 1/8″ thick, to be sure that I’m covering the entire metal surface. Also, be sure and have a rag handy to wipe off the paint if you accidentally dab a little too much paint. Once all the paint is dry, I apply a small square of masking tape around the back/bottom of each piece of metal.
This will act as a sort of primer, which will help to protect the metal from getting scratched. Be careful not to use too much sealer and a paint that has a clear coat, such as Krylon primer, as it will be difficult to see how much paint is left. When I finally put the pieces of metal back together, I then use Krylon spray paint to paint the sides and top of
