Questions & Answers

would this hold a matchbox car?

I want to create a car strip around my sons room and then paint it black so we can put some match box cars on them. Do you think it will hold?
Asked by: LeslyO
You miss every shot you never take! Go for it! Buy some cheap magnets, glue them to the cars, and have fun!

Can I apply this to a wall and then use magnets to hold light weight metal spice containers?

Can I apply this to a wall and then use magnets to hold light weight metal spice containers?
Asked by: DIYer
If you use a strong Neodymium magnet (and the primer is applied correctly), it will definitely hold the spice containers. I recommend gluing a multi-pole magnet, such as a MagnaStrong Polymagnet (also sold at HomeDepot), to the spice containers so that the magnet will sit flush against the wall. If you use hot glue, make sure you give the glue a little time to cool (heat demagnetizes magnets). Don't try this with a ferrite magnet, it definitely won't hold.

i already have latex paint on the wall, will this oil base formula adhere correctly? then I can top with latex again?

Asked by: bobby
Yes, it is designed for this type application. I would recommend that the surface that it will applied to be adequate (free of any imperfections), before applying. Also keep your top coat thickness to a thin as possible and still give you the desired look/color. The thicker the top coat, the weaker the holding power is.

Can I apply this to a wall, then use magnets to hold pictures?

Asked by: 4Larson
A thick metal nail or screw would attract magnets more effectively. You could apply a thin layer of putty/paint to hide them.
