Don’t you love these? Now that I’ve got you inspired to create something and we’re talking spray paint and spray paint project ideas, I figured sharing a few tips on how to spray paint would be useful.
Tips for using spray paint
- Always shake your can well
- Spray paint should be applied about 12 inches from what you’re painting
- Don’t just hold the spray top down and spray randomly. To get an even coat of paint, apply paint in passes working from one side of your project to the other.
- Always begin the paint flow away or off to the side of your project to apply the paint.
- Use the right kind of paint for the surface that’s being painted. Like a spray paint for metal, high heat or one that binds to plastic for the best long-term results.
Favorite tools to make spray painting easier
My Wagner Spray Shelter is awesome for spray paint. It protects everything from overspray and I just fold it away when I’m done. Fast and easy.
Avoid hand and finger cramps with this comfort grip that snaps onto the top of a spray can.
Don’t toss spray paint when the nozzle gets clogged. Keep replacement spray paint nozzles on hand and switch them out.
Even though these projects were all done with spray paint, I’d probably choose to do the larger ones with my HomeRight Super Finish Max paint sprayer to save time.
