Although there is a vast array of decorative wall sconces available on the market today, some consumers still find it difficult to get their hands on a an attractive piece of accent lighting that perfectly matches their design intentions and aids in creating the overall look they desire. Despite the choice of stunning glass, tiffany, polished metal and painted finishes covering just about every colour on the spectrum, it's still not certain they will find an exact match for your current design plan. This is where ceramic wall lights come in handy. Ceramic wall lights are not only a practical and reliable source of lights that can be used to set the right mood or add illumination that may be lacking from a secluded corner, but they are also one hundred percent customisable.
Ceramic wall lights are made from a sturdy plaster like substance that leaves a white matt finish that could not be simpler to paint over in the colour of your choice. The process of personalising your ceramic wall light of course comes with the initial purchase and despite that fact that these fittings come in a bland matt finish there is quite a selection of styles available. Many ceramic wall light designs feature artistic patterns and etchings to go over and you can even find some variation of shape instead of having to settle for the standard half bowl wall washer.
Once you have your style of ceramic wall light in hand you can begin the customisation process. Firstly you must ensure to give the blank light fitting a thorough cleaning and be sure that there are no grease or dust particles that will interfere with the application of the paint. You may even want to give the fixture a light sanding to produce a surface that the oil based paint will correctly adhere to and once all this preparation has been complete you can begin applying the paint. Apply all oil based paint gently; using fine, even strokes and it is best to opt for numerous thin coats of paint rather than one thick pasting making sure that any previous coat has completely dried before starting the next. And there you have it, the accent light of your dreams.
It is best to leave the fitting to sit for a couple of days after painting and you may even wish to apply a water based urethane coating to add a little more longevity to your finish and prevent chips and peeling.
