The 'RIGHT' way to Spray Paint


Today I thought I would show you the RIGHT way to use Spray Paint
My hubs changed careers about 3 yrs ago.. but before that he had been a Professional painter for 10 years. {He has taught me all the tricks!}
I have lots of other great painting tips to share, so keep checking back!
This video only lasts like 40sec. so I know you can watch it real quick! :)

Well, nuts! I wish I'd seen this yesterday. I used an entire can of spray paint to paint two halogen lamps ... not a lot of surface to cover ... and had to buy another can today to do a second coat. Thanks to you, it will be much better than the first. Awesome advice! :)

Andrea, that actually IS very helpful! Now I understand why my spray-painting attempts in the past were rather unsuccessful (wasted paint + finger cramps, anyone?!?!). I suspect spray-painting the way you've shown in the video probably helps lower the risk of the paint running, yes?

Just clicked on this from Lil Luna's post today. And I am so glad I did!!! This was so helpful! I have a few spray paint projects coming up, and I have always been doing it the wrong way. I feel so educated now. Thanks to your husband, and you!

Aaaand, I've been meaning to write to you, and say thanks for your sweet comment. I'll reply to that one separately :) xoxo

From TT&J party. This is so helpful! I was not so much a paint waster as a heavy handed spray painter that caused runs and drips in the project. Love love this!

In many cases Semiconductor Coating are applied to improve surface properties of the substrate, such as appearance, adhesion, wetability, corrosion resistance, wear resistance, and scratch resistance.

Thanks so much for "showing" how it's done. I learned this after wasting many cans of paint and ruining many objects. Could not figure out what I was doing wrong because I was following the advice of "those experts" who tell you the exact opposite of what she showed us. Thanks again.
