Spray paint an EPS diffusor

Color applied : Metallic Gray

Here I tell you about how to spray paint an EPS wall panel. (EPS = extruded polystyrene, Diffusor = breaking, scattering a soundwave)

Starting point

The starting point is a white – uncolored – wall panel, non-colored from production. As EPS doesn’t stand against any form of alcohols, a primer has to be applied. Otherwise, the spray propellant will eat away on the surface. The primer is water based, and propellant other than alcohol based.

Picked up from SLUSH and Swedish radio channel P1 news, 3rd week November.

We can agree there is a rise in temperature, around the globe. If in doubt, one has to be willing to PULL the information – to do ones’ own research.

And, if to change, there must be an certain experience of pain.

Tiira – Vallila Interior

My first textile project using a Vallila Interior product came by chance.

I was new in a local business group of a global network, and in our local group we had arranged a lottery between our guests. From my side the prize was a noise-dampening acoustic wall element, with the textile being the free choice of the receiver.

Did you know?

Wanted to celebrate Finland 100 years independence.

Couldn’t find on the net any – any! – photo of a Finnish flag made from Duplo blocks. Scanned the Lego and Duplo forums. Nothing. Went to the most known shop in Helsinki, in hope of finding a building area with loose blocks for spontaneous building. Strike-out.

The helpful lady guided me to call their other store, since they maintain a spontaneous building corner in that specific shop. Answers a young man – Yes they have a corner, but very few white bricks… Continue reading White Duplo bricks
