Usually there is a little wire hold the lens in ~ above glasses that space frameless or the top part holds them in. In this case, i would imply not do the efforts to popular music them the end in case they don"t pop earlier in however taping turn off the whole lens and bottom through painters tape and also hand paint the structure instead through nail polishing so you execute not have to sand it and also don"t hazard hitting and scuffing the lenses. Girlfriend can likewise stick gems into the nail polish and they will certainly stay fairly well. :)

I don"t think a primer is essential as lengthy as you obstacle the entire frame under well through some fine steel wool.... I would definitely go v the all surface ar paint, that will hold up better.

Thank you. There are 2 factors I avoided it. I have been in the optical market for almost 20 years and have seen many adverse skin reaction to metals, silicone, and plastics. Mode Podge is a water based non-toxic sealer that must wear far better for those through sensitive skin.

The other reason is the it"s basic to acquire too much construct up the a spray finish in the within groove the holds the lens in place. This provides it extremely difficult to re-insert your lenses.

Thanks for your great tutorials. By any type of chance because you operated in the optical industry for 20 years... Would certainly you recognize what kind of paint they use (uv resistant and also skin sensitive) i am making sunglasses and also my team and also I is make the efforts to number out what procedure could be excellent (paint, commercial paint) for our sunglasses. Generally there space in the plastic is injection moulded through the color... Or they are in acetate... We are going in a different route and also need to repaint them afterwards. If friend have any kind of cues it would be greatly appreciated. Cheers,

Everything I market at work-related is either injection molded or acetate. I simply made these together an experiment. I"m no sure around UV resistant paints. I will certainly say that every little thing paint you usage will adhere to the frame better if you unstable up the surface ar a little bit with some steel wool because the frames have such a slick surface.
