Can You Paint A Kettlebell

July 12, 2007, Anthony DiMaggio has some of the coolest kettle bells I have ever seen. Well, today I spent the entire day stripping, sanding, and painting all 12 of my kettle bells to see if I could duplicate Anthony’s results. I am happy to report I was successful.

Pictures are above, but below are the general directions and procedures I followed. White spray paint Colored spray paint Clear spray paint Emory cloth (sandpaper for metal) Heavy gauge rubber gloves Mineral spirits Small scrub brush, steel wool, and scraper Drexel or other detailed sanding apparatus (optional) Clean Strip Deep Down Aerosol Stripper (About Halfway down)1.

Although the Waders have a nice finish, I find that the paint adheres better to the kettle bell if it is bare metal. Apply the stripper liberally and let it sit.

Wearing gloves (this stripper will sting if it comes into contact with skin), use the scraper, steel wool, and brush to remove the finish. Sand imperfections in the handle with a Drexel, if necessary (generally not necessary to any great extent with the Waders).

Put a coat of white spray paint to serve as a primer. Let the colored coat dry for about 15 – 30 minutes.

You ’ll have a kettle bell with a metal handle and a colored bell. Apply a clear coat to the entire bell, including the handle.

I loosely tried to follow the kettle bell sport color scheme of 12 kg=blue, 16 kg= yellow, 24 kg=green. The yellow paint cracked on top of the primer, but the effect was pretty cool.

I messed up the other side of these and will have to redo them at some point, but I am happy with the result. The original finish on This comes off quite nicely with the chemical treatment I used.

Wear gloves when using this stuff — it stings like hell on bare skin. No telling what type of cancer causing substances I exposed myself to yesterday.

I need to find a Texas Longhorn stencil to complete these two. Well, today I spent the entire day stripping, sanding, and painting all 12 of my kettle bells to see if I could duplicate Anthony’s results. I am happy to report I was successful.

A thin coat is all that is necessary to protect the handle and the bell. I loosely tried to follow the kettle bell sport color scheme of 12 kg=blue, 16 kg= yellow, 24 kg=green.

You're a busy person, you don't have time to pick 'em, look at a little insignia, or any other tedious nonsense. After having figured out the sanctioned Gregory color scheme, yellow for 1pood (16 kg), green for 1.5pood (24 kg, etc), and red for 2pood I hit up the local auto-spares shop for the most egregiously bright cans he had to offer, and a can of white primer to provide a light background for the colors.

This is frustrating for a number of reasons: hard to evenly cover the bottom, having to keep moving around the thing, my inability to coordinate my limbs to spray in smooth arcs, and whatever I did just seem to waste loads of paint (I think this is a designed-in “feature” of spray cans...). So I came up with an idea: concoct a spinning KB painting rig so all that's needed is to spray a single point while the thing turns in the air.

The solution to this also yielded another handy benefit: toucan wind the KB up so it spins on its own. To key the paint I used a handy foam sanding block that works nicely with the curved surface.

Sanded and ready to go Slung a piece of old rope over my pull-up bar, and attached both ends to the KB handle. After a couple of spins I realized it's possible to literally hold the can in one place near the bottom of the bell about 10 cm max from the surface.

As the KB unwinds and speeds up it drops slowly toward to the floor effectively removing the need to spray up and down. As toucan see, I'd laid out a large piece of cardboard to protect the wall from spray.

Being a sunny day, I barely waited more than about five minutes between coats despite the KB itself being in the shade. The little section I'd scrounged from the trash is starting to tear, and as it was wound up shed lots of little bits of material which have stuck to the paint.

'Scuse the ad but WWW.

Pete: Yeah, you're right, it was one of those things right place, right time for power seekers, car rental, a bit of haggling... And quite honestly I didn't realize how annoying the monotone KB's would get! Well what if you want to do like a stripe design like punch gym, and can't u just leave the handle black to do don't have to worry about it ban smooth just wondering.

DescriptionKettlebells have been used since ancient times to build strength and enhance fitness. Whether you want to lose weight, tone up, improve your fitness or get stronger, toucan achieve your overall fitness goals by using a kettle bell from our extensive range, starting from 4 kilograms right through to 32 kg in weight.

Toucan stop by our store in Halley, Melbourne in Victoria to view our e-coated cast iron kettle bell range, or if you already know what you want, order easily and conveniently through our online store. Powder Coating is one of the most durable types of paint available on top of kettle bells.

The Kettle Kettle bell logo pictured above is recessed in the bell for increased comfort during lifting. Additionally, if the logo is not in the bell itself it is inserted or glued in which will come out over time and create discomfort during lifts.

SMOOTH FINISH, when kettle bells come out of the mold they are still rough with edges and seams that tear up your hands if not polished off. Our bells are polished free of imperfections when they come out of the mold and then painted with powder coating to improve grip texture.

Casting from a single piece of metal gives more durability to the kettle bell COLORED BANDS ON HANDLES, Color specific to certain weights, identify the kettle bell without picking up or rolling it over, bands are coded for easy identification ENGRAVED, In kilograms and pounds so you always know which weight you are working with in either measurement HANDLE GRIP, Powder coating make a great gripping surface when your hands are sweating, also holds chalk better than all other kettle bell paint options like matte or e-coat POWDER COATING, is the most durable form of kettle bell paint available and lasts longer than traditional kettle bell paint The kettle bell or Syria, coming from Russia, is a flat-bottomed cast iron or steel weight with a handle.

It is now used for the physical preparation of top athletes, in sports such as CrossFit as well as in the armed forces. It is particularly appreciated for its hardiness, functionality and the complete work it allows.

Train until you master the 32 kg on all types of movements, and you ’ll be strong enough to perform every day, whether in your job or in any sport. In addition to strength, the kettle bell provides complete development : endurance, mobility, stability, coordination.

Its particularity lies in its shifted center of gravity, which allows very useful applications impossible with simple dumbbells. The Eryx® adjustable kettle bell allows for a progressive weight training, without having access to a gym.

This weight training will perfectly complement your body weight training : swings, presses, get-ups… It also allows you to practice weighted major body weight exercises, such as dips, pull-ups and muscle-ups. Toucan very easily remove rust points with a light sanding or metal brush.

It is even appreciated by a certain number of advanced practitioners because it adds an “anti-slip” side to the handle and allows better retention of chalk. The paint will also be damaged over time, due to repeated small shocks against the ground or another kettle bell when working with two.
