Tip No.1:

Preparing the surface properly is the first step to a greater coat. The painting surface must be free of any foreign particles such as dust, dirt, sand, oils etc. This will affect the coating by creating an uneven layer of paint. If metal is being painted, then it is necessary to prepare the surface by a variety of methods like, emery cloth, steel wool, sand paper, files etc. This would make the metal surface ready to accept the paint, thereby a guaranteed pathway to a perfect coating. Finally, after removing all dust and grit, the surface should be washed with any organic solvents such as alcohol and acetone to remove any oil that might be present on the surface.

Tip No.2:

In order to prevent the areas that you don’t want to paint from any smudging or spills, a masking tape must be used to cover the surface. Although any masking tape would work, for better results it is advised to use the specialty tapes, designed for this purpose. The excess tape can be trimmed using a hobby knife or a razor blade. It is also advised to use rubber gloves during the application.

Tip No.3:

Prepare your spray-painting room. Professional spray painters have a dedicated space to work on their projects with all sophisticated equipment such as paint boards, exhaust fume hood and several other that might help them manage the space and to keep the environment safe. For beginners, it is relatively easy to set up a working space to work on their projects. All one needs is a few cardboard boxes to cover the walls to prevent it from any accidental spills. The box can also be shaped in proper shapes to provide a great and cheap working space. A small slit with a fan with a reverse magnet position can be used as an exhaust hood.
