Q:

Can you use acrylic paint on glass?

A:

Glass can be painted with acrylic paint. There are some paints that are specifically made for glass, but regular acrylic paint works as well. A varnish is needed to glaze over the work.

Wash the glass in warm soapy water, then rinse it in clear warm water, and let it air dry. Dab a paper towel with rubbing alcohol or white vinegar, and use it to wipe down the glass, removing any soap residue. Let it dry for 15 minutes. Follow the directions for painting. Apply a coat of varnish over the finished work after the paint is completely dry.

    How do you re-ink a self-inking stamp?

    A:

    All self-inking stamps either have a tray that must be refilled by pushing down slightly on the stamp and pulling out the tray, or the casing of the stamp must be removed which exposes ports or dishes that can be refilled. Self-inking stamps typically can only be refilled with compatible company-specific ink, as mixing in a different formula could cause damage to the stamp.

    How do you repair trailer siding?

    A:

    To repair the siding, the damaged pieces need to be removed and replaced. The RV Repair Manual states that 8-foot-long sheet metal siding can be replaced by two workers, but longer sheets may require up to four people to handle without damaging the sheets. Sometimes, it is possible to remove just the damaged panel, but, more commonly, multiple panels have to be removed to access the damaged one.
