Faint windows early in the day, or you
may have to leave them open all night to dry.
Oil-based paints take several hours to dry. Stick
masking tape around the edges of the glass, leaving a
Y in (2 mm) gap between the frame and window; paint
will overlap onto the glass, protecting the frame
against water damage.
In order, paint the rebates and
crossbars (1), crossrails (2), hinge edge and hanging
stile (3), meeting stile (4), and frame (5).
PAINTING SASH WINDOWS
Reverse the top and bottom frames. Paint
the meeting rail (1), vertical bars (2), lower runners and
frame (3), crossrail and underside (4). Once dry, reverse
the frames. Paint a crossrail (5), vertical bars (6),
other crossrail (7), remainder (8), soffit, upper runners,
behind cord (9), frame (10).
