Painting the Dado Rails

For sections of the doors and the planks of wood which the doors were later going to be hinged onto, a number of thin Dado Rails needed to be painted so they could then be attatched as soon as possible.

With an undercoat of a red/brown mixture of paint I then painted over the dado rails with gold paint. The paint was used sparingly and lightly so that parts of the undercoat could show through to produce a more toned appearance.

The paint brushes were then washed in Methylated Spirit due to the gold being oil based paint and would not be removed from the brushes with water.

This job was simple and was able to be done fast and came out very effective.
