Step 3: Cut Windows & Clear Transparent Plastic

make a window for light & see inside, tape the window & filter down.

Step 4: Cut Hole Big Enough to Fit Your Arm

Step 5: Start Spraying

put your art piece & spray paint inside the box, close the cover, pick up the spray can & start spraying. Do not open box immediately, let the overspray settle first, about 5 minutes, then only open the cover :)
