How to use a paint sprayer

The process of spray painting is very similar to that of roller painting. It is only the application technique that changes: with the gun, the paint is not laid on the surfaces (as is the case with rollers), but it is projected.

  • Your surface to be painted must be smooth and clean to allow an optimal and uniform application of the paint.
  • Prepare the surface to be painted: protect furniture, floors, and ceilings that are not covered by the paint.
  • Protect yourself! Your face and eyes are very fragile in the face of paint particles that are going to float in your environment. For the most sensitive, be sure to camouflage your entire body. If you are working indoors, also consider ventilating the room so that it can ventilate and evacuate paint vapors.
  • Prepare your painting: test it, dilute it if necessary. You can use a paint mixer that helps to obtain a homogeneous mixture.
  • Prepare your gun and choose the nozzle suited to the paint used.
  • We advise you to spray on cardboard to carry out a first painting test. From this test, adjust your gun, re-dilute or re-mix your paint, etc.
  • Are you ready? So fill your tank with your final paint and spray!
  • Hold your gun about thirty centimeters from the surface. The paint should be applied by performing regular movements with your gun. Be aware that a change in vertical strips avoids unsightly runs. Then cross the passages with an “S” movement to homogenize.
  • If your surface to be painted is enormous, it is best to work small end by low end, one at a time, and to move gradually until covering the entire surface. Nothing serves to go too fast: you will complicate the task unnecessarily, and you will obtain a less consistent result.
  • Is it over? Observe the drying time before any further operation (e.g., lacquer or varnish).
  • Clean your gun! This is essential, or it will not last long!
