HOW TOO - USE A SPRAY CAN ( RATTLE CAN PAINTING ) INFOMATION VID

Postby wingdings » Wed Jan 11, 2017 7:24 am



Hi - all - Been following a guy on you tube for a while now - the vids he makes do make sense - very much like the how too articles do on here - anyways - In the true spirt of the site - ( Helping others !! ) here is a vid for information use.. Delboy's Garage, Simple Skills, "Rattle can paint" - Hope you find it useful and informative as well .. vid - below -

"The bit on turning the can upside down and spraying until clear after use - makes real sense - and could save you money on wasted half used cans - yes we have all done it - went back to use the can and it just won't work leaving half paint stuck in the can - that use just cannot use - yes ?? ..

ENJOY !!!!!

Didn't watch the video ..... but as a kid building model cars .... I learned that spray paint works best ... flows the nicest ... if the can is first warmed up good by sitting it in a bowl of hot water. The water will cool a bit as the can and contents warm. It's still a good tactic.

Heat the water or get it from the sink into bowl, then set can of paint in bowl.

Never place the can in a pan of water on a stove! (it had to be said)

It is also much better to spray onto a surface which is relatively warm. In summer it is ok, you can just leave things to warm up in the air, but in a cold workshop in winter you should warm up whatever you are spraying otherwise you will have lots of runs.
