Begin with these helpful tips.


1. Before you begin, make sure you’re in a well-ventilated area. After reading your can's instructions, begin shaking the can for the stated amount of time. For most products it is recommended you begin counting the time once the can makes a rattling sound.
2. Put some old newspaper down and practice your spraying technique. Note that if you go too fast or leave the can pointing at one spot too long, you’ll get uneven finish. Practice spraying in slightly overlapping stripes.
3. Carefully prepare the object ensuring it is clean and dry. It can be a good idea to sand your object using sandpaper. Prime where necessary. Test the paint on an inconspicuous area of the object to be painted to ensure colour compatibility. If you’re unsure whether or not you need to prime the object, allow the painted test area to dry fully and check the adhesion.
4. Carefully mask any areas of the object not to be painted. Apply the paint at the recommended spraying distance, alternating between moving the can from left to right and up and down. Pause to shake the can at regular intervals during painting. Be sure to slightly overlap on each stroke to prevent striping. Apply several thin coats and allow to dry for the stated time before recoating.
5. For best results, make sure your ambient temperature and surface target area are 10 degrees Celsius or higher. However, keep in mind that 'sun baked' temperature is also detrimental. It is highly recommended you attach a 'spray paint applicator' to help minimize the loss of paint and achieve a more even finish.
