PAINTING CAMERAS
I don’t like touching up cameras with paint. I have a personal opinion, that cameras should appear in their original condition and not be painted. But . . . on rare occasions I do touch up a spot on a camera with black paint or metal blackener. I don’t touch up the whole camera. I only paint a spot that stands out. Anyway, I’m listing the paints, brushes, and metal blackeners I use below. The paints are Gloss Black, Semi-Gloss Black, and Flat Black.

This is Birchwood Casey Aluminum Black Touch-Up. In the past I used black paint to touch up cameras, but now I use metal blackening products for: aluminium, brass, and steel. They don’t rub off like paint and they last a lot longer. Even if they don’t totally blacken a bare metal spot on a camera, they still help tone it down. Sometimes you have to use a dremel wire wheel on the bare metal and remove the tarnish before it will blacken.
