Here's how to use a spraygun to paint your projects and make them look great. A spraygun is a lot faster than a paintbrush. The result looks a lot better too. No brush marks!
Make everything around you look shipshape and professional. A wise lady once told me "A project isn't finished til there's a "finish" on it. Get it?"
Any object tends to look like crap after it's been outside for a while. Metal rusts. Paint flakes off. Wood discolors and starts to crack. And the project you spent so much time on is yet another eyesore to irk the normal people.
A spraygun is the magic wand that will solve your problem. It really is just like magic.
Paint a multicolored object all one color, and it suddenly looks like a real thing, not some crap stuck together. Paint it white, black, or grey to match the theme of your surroundings, and suddenly it vanishes. It's become a part of the surroundings. No one would think of making you get rid of it.
I just made this metal hand truck look like part of the solution.
A few minutes ago it definitely looked like part of the problem.
Stuff you'll need:
Safety GlassesHearing Protection
Filter Mask with organic vapor (charcoal) cartridge
Angle Grinder with Cup Brush
Sticks, rags, and something ugly, rusty, and dry to paint.
