Researching: Spray Bomb Painting : Proper Techniques.

I was wondering if the Fine Members of this forum would be willing to help me gather some information.

I am looking for Tips and Tricks on doing a "Good" job.I know that Spray bombing will never be perfect.

I have heard when using Rustoleum Paint to buy a can of Elmers Spray Adhesive for the cap. They call it a Rusto Fat Cap. Its supposed to give a bigger spray fan and doesnt Sputter like the regular cap.

Anything from Prep to Clear Coating is welcome.

I will update as I find more information

- get a bucket that will hold your cans pf spray paint. Then fill it up with HOT tap water. The can won't explode- don't worry. then put the cans in it so the contents of the can are warmed up before you spray.
- shake the cans really well for a minute or 2.
- hold the can upside down and press the nozzle for a couple of short blasts to clear the nozzle of any dust or old paint.

The reason you want to use a differant color primer, is so when paint the finish coat on, if you cant see the primer, you know youve put enough paint on.

Hi end auto painters used to use red oxide primer, under yellow, blue, black. Just so they knew they had put an even full coat on the car.
