Bye-bye tacks and nails...a new
magnetic paint allows you to stick up art without damaging your walls. Our
ReadyMade show us how it's done.

has been around for a little while, but I'm only now seeing it being used in
really sophisticated ways. Like this installation at the gallery
r20thCentury, which features posters
and pamphlets displayed on the wall using rare-earth magnets. (Why rare earth?
Because it's world away stronger than any alphabet magnet you can find.)
Sherry Griffin, ReadyMade
For the strongest effect, use three coats of the
magnetic paint. While you can paint over it and still get the magnetic
benefit, I've heard that two coats are the max for the second color coat. (And
even then, it gets a little weak.)
Magnetic paint is ideal for a childs' room. (Just
think, no unsightly holes made by tacks!) Here, it's used to repurpose a
mirror into a message board. What's even more remarkable is that the designer
finished the project with a topcoat of pink chalkboard paint. Love this idea.

Magnetic Paint as a primer on any project,

favorite color and add lightweight magnets.

Lightweight magnets work best with this
paint finish. Before completing your project, test to make sure you've added
enough coats to hold your magnets. If you plan to paint over this finish
with another color, add a few extra coats of Magnetic Paint first so that
your magnets will still hold in place.
