Rustoleum Problem... Solution?


Recommended Posts

Recently I lightly sanded and sprayed my anvil horn trainer with rustoleum. It was bare steel but had been sitting in my humid garage and had developed some major rust (sharp burrs and such). So I sprayed it over to protect it from rust.... The problem is that now it's slicker than goose crap, and won't hold chalk at all. Every time you touch it, it just slickens up again. Naturally this has made it wayyyyy harder to lift, and is very frustrating.

So, for those who have had to paint equipment like this, what would you all suggest I do? Should I leave the paint on, but take some sandpaper and rough up the surface? Should I take off the paint and just try an make sure the bare steel doesn't develop rust? Or is there a better paint that I could use, in which case I should sand it bare again and use that paint?

Rustoleum Texture Paint - shake really well and hold the can back further than usual. I fight the rust issue in my "only heated when using" garage gym. I have used this with good results.
