Photo wall with magnetic paint
Making your own magnetic paintI mixed pre-coat paint from the home improvement store with fine iron powder (ebay or even cheaper at MG Powders) at a ratio of 1:1 (relative to the weight). The mixing ratio is a matter of trial and error - a ratio of 0,75 parts powder to 1 part paint proved to be too weak.
Fastening photos with magnetsI glued my pictures onto screen print boards and then put one disc magnet on each top edge. I glued the magnets with Pattex-Montagekleber.
Helen also painted her wall with magnetic paint but then painted over it with emulsion paint. Now the photo wall appears less obtrusive and fits the room perfectly. To be able to change the photos, Helen decided on attaching them with small disc magnets S-06-03-N. Four of them hold one picture on the magnetic wall. And, because the magnets are not glued to the pictures, the photos can be used for other purposes afterwards.
