Shell Busey Blog - Paint Counter and Backsplash

Plastic laminates known in the industry under name brands such as Arborite, Formica, Wilson Art etc. can be painted using Melamine paint. First, you must wash the countertop with my Shell Busey Home Cleaning Formula and rinse well.

Use 400 grit wet/dry sandpaper to rub the sheen off, now you are ready for two coats of melamine paint.

Apply the paint with a natural bristle brush and 3" paint roller allowing 12 hours drying time between coats. The room temperature must be 18 - 20 Celsius with relative humidity not greater than 50% for ideal conditions.

It's just that easy!
