Step 2: Prepare the base with sandpaper. 

After performing the first step, take the sandpaper and wash the surface of the ceramics. It would help if you ensured that the primer and subsequent coats of paint remain on the surface. You can use a block of sanding foam for tight points.

Perform this step professionally. You can even hire a professional person, but you can also do this by yourself. Be careful about the distribution of base, that it has been applied on all the surface evenly.

Step 3: Cover the base with painter’s tape and add prime.

Cover the base with a painter’s tap in such a way that it shouldn’t be tightened. Doing this will distort all the layout and will leave the surface carrying jumps and bolts.

Cover the areas you don’t want to spray paint with tape. Read the instructions for your primer and spray in light coats.

Step 4: Spray the lamp.

After the primer is completely dry, add the paint lightly to prevent bubbles and drops. This process is spraying. Spraying should be done uniformly, and no place should be leftover unsprayed.

Step 5: Detach the painter’s tape.

Slightly peel off the paint strip, and if you notice paint in the covered areas, you can use a paint thinner to remove it. Be careful while peeling off the paint strip. Doing thing process roughly may disturb the whole layout. For better results and saving yourself from inconvenience, start peeling off from the edges. Peel the paint with the help of your thumbnail.
