Answer: disassemble the switch, apply a special primer and then two coats of paint.

The best method to paint a switch is to disassemble it. To do this, you will need to cut the power from the circuit breaker. Take a screwdriver, and gently remove the affected switches from the wall. Then, put the switch on a table protected with a tarpaulin or paper for example, and apply a special primer (found commercially) which will ensure the adhesion of the paint on the plastic. Finally, paint it. For best results, apply two coats of paint.The drying time varies depending on the paint, it is usually indicated on the pot. It is also recommended, but not essential, to pass a varnish on the switch, if you used an acrylic paint to paint it. Change a switch and install a light dimmer Our practical DIY videos
