    Hello all!

    I have 4 copper pipes (2 x heating, + cold and hot water) running up a wall, fairly close to a shiny white, new boiler flue. Is there a suitable spray paint I could use to avoid some very tedious and fiddly brushwork? I realise I'd need to mask behind and around the area, but spraying seems a good idea to me!

    Would I need a particular type of paint?

    All suggestions would be gratefully received ... thanks![/i]

    Apply any oil based paint by brush gloss or satin

    To do them properly you should use calcium plumbate as an etch primer then undercoat and gloss.
