So many ways to use Rust-Oleum spray paint

One of the joys of collaborating with Rust-Oleum is that we get to try out the products before we recommend them to our readers.

You can use Rust-Oleum spray paint on almost any surface; concrete, plastic, ceramic, wicker and more. Some projects may required a light sanding and a cost of Rust-Oleum primer, but otherwise your piece should just be clean and dry.

You will find plenty of tips and tricks for prepping and painting furniture in our Rust-Oleum Crafts and Decorating sections.

An investment you can't go wrong with is an orbital or random orbit sander. I must admit to a preference for the Bosch PSS 200 AC. With this sander you can use regular sheets of sandpaper and cut this into three strips - saving you a fortune on sanding pads and also allowing you to sand with a wider range of grits.

Sand away paint or varnish that is damaged or peeling with 60 / 80-grit sandpaper and then sand with 120-grit before finishing with 240-grit sandpaper. Wipe clean and then take you piece outdoors or in a well-ventilated space to spray.

If you need to disguise imperfections, or perhaps want to distress or apply a finishing technique, use flat or satin spray paint.

Rust-Oleum spray paint is unlike any other spray paint available locally. Because of the ratio of paint to solvent, Rust-Oleum spray paint offers far more coverage with less coats. Priced between R80 - R120 depending on the finish, you use less cans of paint to finish your spray painting project.
