Not sure if it's possible but you might have to add whether it's plastic or cast iron (ceramic). There are different types of bath tubs.

Re: Bath painting

It's certainly possible. I've seen it done on a UK TV DIY type show a few years ago. But more reliably, my wife's b-i-l (my s-i-l's hubby), who works in a paint store and knows about this stuff, has re-painted his bath in the last few months, after a disaster with the wrong cleaning product. Can't say what the actual paint used was, but presume it was special for the purpose.

Your best bet is to find a similar paint store (that serves the trade as well as public), in your area and ask them. As recommended above, be sure you know what type of bath you have.

If you haven't already "googled" painting a bath, it might be an idea. The following link was on one of the search results:

Re: Bath painting

I have no thanks button otherwise I would have thanked you both
It is in fact an old shower so it would have to be ceramic I would think

Re: Bath painting

Do you own the bath tub in question? If not it could get real expensive when it comes time to move out and you've found the paint doesn't come off as easily as it went on.

Re: Bath painting

We painted our bath as it is cast iron and quite large but was a horrid colour.
I ordered the paint online and the Company supplies paint for hotels as by all accounts a lot of hotels paint their baths.
I shall see if I can find out who I used.
It is quite tricky to do and you must have a very well ventilated room as the smell was overpowering.
A friend in the UK had theirs done by a company - the finish was excellent.
I do have the odd chip but you can buy a touch up kit.

Re: Bath painting

Thanks that would be great if you had a name.
Did you think it was quite easy to use?
