What kind of paint do you use on picture frames? There are numerous types of paint available, including acrylic, latex, alkyd (synthetic) oil paint and natural (e.g. linseed) oil paint. Natural oil paint works best on wood picture frames, as it dries slightly softer and can thus expand and contract with changing temperatures.
Can you paint a picture frame without removing the picture? Using the painters tape and paper, cover the picture completely on both sides. Make sure you tape right up to the edge of the frame. If you are not using chalk spray paint, lightly sand the frame, then wipe clean. Spray the frame making sure to not overspray and leave large drops of paint.

Will acrylic paint stick to a picture frame? To ensure your paint sticks to a metal frame, lightly sand the surface with 80-grit and then 120-grit sandpaper. Then, clean away any residue and allow it to dry. Acrylic and spray paint are both excellent options for metal picture frames.
