galvanized look paint for wood

schmuck's picture

I am looking for a paint that looks like galvanized steel.  I want to paint my wood trim around my windows and doors (exterior).   I have a log house with a galvanized roof that I had acid-washed to dull and age appearance.  I would like the window trim to  look similar.  It is currently painted with latex paint.  Does anyone know of a good paint that will give me that look?  I would prefer a product that is water clean up. 


Thanks, AO

I smell trouble using metallic paints over prev painted wood.  I doubt it will weather very well.


My suggestion is to paint with and good grade exterior gray then some how (sponge, rag, coarse brush??) with a lighter gray in an attempt to get a galvanized appearance.


A decorating center that sells all that textured wall coatings and equipment may be of some help.

Aluminum paint or cold process galvinzing...

Darn it, that was goint to be my answer, only with soldered lap joints for places like jamb-to-sill and head-to-jambs . . .


Well, dang it, all I can find for S-W is aerospace paint--which might not be far off the mark . . .

Cold galvanize aerosol spray would be close. Paint a near matching color in latex, then spray a cover coat of the galvanize. It is a dull gray, not the shiny new galvanize look, but more like old galvanizing. It's not really going to fool anybody.
