KELLY EDWARDS: Hi. I’m Kelly Edwards, and this is my GMC Trade Secret.
One of my ultimate favorite things in design is actually just a can of spray paint, because this can can transform any object. And what a lot of people don’t know is you can actually get a high-quality finish.
So let’s start with the basics. The first thing is that spray paint actually comes in two types. It comes in latex and oil-based.
Now, before you get started with spray painting, you want to make sure that you prep your objects properly, which means they need to be clean. They need to be dry, sanded and properly primed.
Now, before you start any of this, though, you have to make sure that you read the label, because this stuff is highly flammable and you want to use it in well-ventilated areas.
Now, before you get started, you just need to shake up the can a bit. And what this is, it has a tiny ball inside which mixes up the pigment. So you want to make sure that you shake it at least 30 seconds longer than it says in the directions.
Now, once your spray paint has been shaken up, it’s time to start spray painting. But the first thing you want to check to make sure is that your nozzle’s actually working correctly. So grab yourself some newspaper and give it a couple of quick sprays. Once you know that your nozzle is working correctly, it’s time to start spray painting your object.
Now, you want to make sure you go in continuous motions from one end to the next. The more coats you give it, the darker and the richer the color will be. And you want to allow about 15 minutes’ dry time in between each coat.
