Remove the cover from the wall or from the package if new, REMOVE SCREWS, and wipe with alcohol.
1
Apply Polycrylic to coat and let the excess drip off. Learn from my mistakes: remove the screws!
2
Glitter. Tap off excess and let dry.
3
Apply a second coat of Polycrylic and glitter if necessary.
4
Seal with Rustoleum clear spray. Let dry. (Photo is post spray and dry. I don’t spray indoors.)
5
Optional: apply epoxy. Allow to cure for 12-24 hrs depending on brand. Keep screws out!
6
Place the cover in a tray to catch dripping over popsicle sticks so it will be easier to remove.
7
Repeat epoxy if necessary. I used 2 coats. CAREFULLY remove from tray with True Control Knife.
8
File edges smooth with nail file or sanding block & wipe with alcohol to remove excess dust.
9
Apply clear coat nail polish to bring back the shine from sanding along the edges.
10
Install & enjoy! (I had to remove all the glitter & epoxy from my screws to install.)
