Spray painting tips for beginners

Spray painting is a technique that interests many artists. It is also called aerosol painting by many and involves paint that comes in pressurized cans that can be released in the form of a mist. Spray painting can leave a smooth evenly colored surface if done properly. Aerosol primer can also be used to bare the metal or the plastic surface that spray painting is being done on.

Stencils are often used when attempting to do spray painting. These help in keeping the paint off the surfaces that you do not want the paint to come on to. If you are starting to do spray painting on your own it is recommended that you start with a few cans only. While some people like to dive head first into everything and get all the equipment that is required, taking smaller steps can save you a lot of money.

The surface that you are using for spray painting should have no dust at all. Dust or dirt shall take away from the quality of the end result of your painting. It is also recommended that the temperature should be between 50 degrees Fahrenheit to 90 degrees Fahrenheit to get the best results. Doing spray painting when the humidity is more than 85 percent is not a good idea too.

The best way to achieve a good coat in spray painting is to hold the spray paint can at a distance of about 10 to 14 inches and press the nozzle. It is essential that you keep the spray nozzle moving. This will help you get an even thin coat. If you stop moving, the level of paint shall build up in one spot causing inconsistencies.
