Basic Spray Painting Tips

Simple spray painting techniques can help achieve a high quality spray painted finish. Work on incorporating these techniques to ensure a quality result is achieved each time you use your spray gun.

Always strain the paint prior to spray painting. Even brand-new cans of paint can contain particles which may blemish the final spray painted finish.

Always test the spray gun with water or thinners before attempting to spray paint to ensure the spray gun is functioning correctly.
