Before you start,  locate a well ventilated space for completing your project and then spread out your drop cloth and get started!

1. For a lasting finish, apply a quality primer. Priming provides a good bond to surfaces, so your topcoat goes on smoother and lasts even longer. Shake the can for one minute after the mixing ball begins to rattle and hold the can 30cm away from your project. Apply the spray paint in a steady back-and-forth motion. Apply two or more light coats a few minutes apart to avoid drips and runs.

GOOD TO KNOW: We recommend a light sanding with 180-grid sandpaper before you begin priming - for optimal adhesion and to ensure any loose paint or debris is removed.

2. Shake the can of topcoat for one minute after the mixing ball starts to rattle. Hold the can 30cm away from the surface and spray using the same technique you used to prime. Apply two or more light coats a few minutes apart.

Allow your spray painted projects to dry overnight and then put them on display.
