In a well-ventilated area, cover a flat surface with a drop cloth or tarp to protect from overspray.
Before starting, read your Krylon labels for safety, application, and dry-time instructions.
Place the bicycle frame on the drop cloth. Remove or cover any areas you don't want to paint with painter's tape (wheels, handlebars, etc.).
Smooth out any rust buildup with a wire brush (you can also use sandpaper).
Wipe down the surface with a damp, lint-free cloth to remove rust particles or dust. Allow to dry before painting.
Shake your Krylon can for at least 1 minute before spraying.
To achieve the featured look, spray paint the frame of the bicycle with Gloss Sunbeam, staying 8-10 inches away to avoid drips. Recoat until you achieve the desired finish, waiting 1 minute between coats.
Let the frame dry for 1 hour before setting up for the second color. Use tape to protect painted areas from overspray, as well as to create accent striping.
Paint fenders and accent stripes with Satin Blue Peacock. Recoat until you achieve the desired finish, waiting 1 minute between coats.
Wait 1 hour for paint to dry before carefully removing tape.
Reassemble your bicycle and proceed to ride in style.
