  2. the outcome for $24 is a great deal, you could have helped the adhesion process by cleaning with denatured alcohol which would have removed any leftover oils from the tar, maybe even a lacquer thiner, but nevertheless its a day and night difference.

  4. Do you think this would work on a tub with weird built in like non slip marks? Idk I live in a rental and the tub and sink are just ridiculous I’d like to fix them up if I could

  5. Hmmm…. this may work the next time you try doing this. Put on a layer or two then sand it down again to get a smooth surface again then just put another layer in that bad boy. Hopefully this helps

  6. That's awesome! It gives me hope of fixing my 65 year old tub, I hope it can be used on porcelain.

  7. I've often wondered what it would be like to paint a bathtub, & now I know. And I really want to do it. Lol.
    I also want to paint a carpet – maybe a mat/rug would be a better start. And to win the UK lottery…. 🤪🤪
    I love how it turned out for you, I think you did a great job!!!

  8. I know I can’t paint anything in my apartment but my tub is all scratched up and there’s this odd orange patch that I guess they must of patched up a crack or something.. super bulky weird patch. There’s also this little area of this dark stain stuff I can seem to scrub off ☹️ might just paint anyways lol

  12. Oil and stuff left on tub. Have to clean it really good before painting. Orange peel look. Wipe with alcohol. To remove all oils off tub

  15. You did a great job making this video! If you're ever doing multiple coats of a durable paint, you could use an extra fine sandpaper in between coats. Your tub looked thousands of times better!

  16. Use a hair dryer to make the bubbles come up and out

  17. Separation is oils in the surface. If you redo it I suggest wiping it with a tack cloth then maybe isopropyl alcohol.

  18. How long did the paint last?

  20. Those holes are called fish eye. Its from impurities and oils left behind. From what I hear these kits are horrible about that. You can use denatured alcohol or acetone to get any oil residue off usually. But its definately a huge improvement

  22. I painted my bathroom tub I had the old cast iron style pink color tub but the only good thing is how deep the older Tabs are the newer tubs are more shallow but priming the tub very important and two light coats which would equal 1 thick and be prepared to have a open window or a vent fan because the paint is very strong smell but highly recommended

  24. Using the rag roller introduced air into the paint and created the bubbles. It also leaves a textured finish. Use a foam roller next time.

  25. With every coat the holes lessoned.

  27. You should use a foam roller. But great job 🙂

  28. We paid a “professional” to paint our two tubs…lasted about three months right now. Looks like total crap. $600 down the drain, literally.

  29. ADDRESSING A FEW THINGS because who knew people could get so upset about someone else's bath tub!!
    1. we did not put black tar in the tub.. when we took out the bath fitter the tar was underneath
    2. we DID follow the instructions except for the type of paint brush because everyone in the reviews said NOT to use the paint brush it recommends
    3. this product is known for bubbling, almost every review said that on the product page
    4. we did not install a new bath tub because
    A) to take out a 300 pound bath tub with just me and my husband is not easy. we would have had to of broken to the tub to pieces to get it out
    B) we liked the tub's design and age and didn't want to waste it
    5. My parents have done this and it has lasted them years and still NO chipping, if you do it the right way it won't chip
    6. We can scrub this tub hard and nothing chips or peels
    7. We are only 24 and 25 years old.. buying a house in New York at our age is a HUGE accomplishment. We are doing things to save money and be wise. For older people to comment rude remarks is very sad. Let's be happy for others and build each other up. If you have suggestions you can say them without being rude.

  39. Can you do another review on your tub….

  42. Hate to tell you this chips off within a year or so

    Reply
  43. Did you ever clean the tub or was the sanding sufficient??

    Reply
  44. Turned out great. You ended up with so many air bubbles because of the type of roller you used. You should have used the type for smooth surfaces, they almost feel like a magic eraser.
