I was wondering if aluminum paint would work instead of the foil?

Thanks for the instructable.
if the paint contains actual aluminium in a considerable concentration, i cannot see why not.

Thank you for the comment. That would be a good question to ask the maker of the paint you expect to use. You could try it and if it does not work, you can still do the foil.

U should use better images...What if my wife need her salad ball?

Another instructable on the same issue...I prefer a metal parabolic dish but anyway....

I have used a pie tin as a reflector, I mounted it 1/4 wavelength from the vertical antenna. (just mounted the receiver on the wall and put the tin over it.)

Thankyou for your comment. When I get a chance I probably will replace it.
