Our Paintable front plates have been coated with a protective finish which allow one to paint them with any type of paint finish so that they treuly match your ceiling. After extensive testing we have a number of reccommendations for you to get the best results from our products.
For best results
Use Small Roller
Use a small roller to paint the Front Plates as they tend to stick to large rollers, alternatively you can spray them. Ensure that there is a smooth even coat on the front plate and that they are fully dry before handling.
Place the Front Plates on a clean flat surface, a piece of cardboard is ideal and allow them to dry fully before putting them into the Levello Fitting. We don't reccomend using newspaper as it tends to stick to the plate when dry and can be difficult to remove.

Paint in Ceiling
Although tempting, do not paint the plates in the ceiling. Apart from getting paint on the front of the Lamp or Baffle, the paint will act like a weak glue make them more difficult to remove and it is unlikely that when they are removed the paint will "crack" in a perfect circle
