How To Use a Paint Sprayer

The invention of the modern day paint sprayer has allowed DIY homeowners to take control of paint projects that otherwise would have been timely and expensive. There are specific techniques when using paint sprayers that will maximize their effectiveness.
Make sure that the paint you’ve chosen will work and is the desired color. You should test on a piece of spare wood or cardboard. During this test you should adjust the tip for the optimal spray pattern and once you start painting begin experimenting with the distance you hold the sprayer to your painting surface. You shouldn’t need to go beyond 10 inches.
You should concentrate on laying a smooth, thin, even coat and use cardboard to protect other sections from overspray.
Move the sprayer in an even rythmic motion that is parallel to your wall.
Let dry and enjoy.
