Metal finishing Q&As since 1989


Painting a Stainless Steel Sink

I would like to put a new sink in, and I would like to have a black, deep sink, but very expensive. Question is, I really like the deep stainless steel sinks, and was wondering is there any kind of paint I can use to paint sink black?

Thank you

I have had really good luck in the past when changing the look of my kitchen appliances. What I do is contact a local auto body shop, or the body shop of my car dealer. They are used to painting metal and you can't believe the number of colors available. In addition, if you can wait,it is much cheaper to ask to be put on "wait" list for when they have "down" time (very little business). I have had a stainless steel sink in my laundry room done this way and it still looks great after tons of use. In addition, my girlfriend redid all her appliances in 1950's pink - which was the same color as a Pink Cadillac back then I guess. Good Luck!

Dear Sirs,

We produce stainless steel kitchens, and it would be nice to paint and draw on the doors, can you help in this matter.

Best regards

I need to know what to use to paint a stainless steel sink with copper spray paint, as what to use as a spray bonding.

We are just down the road from you in Poland, NY and are wondering the same thing. We are installing a bar sink and are trying to avoid the high cost of a copper sink. Please let us know if you have found anything out or have tried any products yet.
