Trash Table Spray-painting Tips

  • Shake the can well before use.
  • Make sure you spray in a well ventilated area.
  • Use a mask.
  • Hold the can 30cm away from the object and follow the lines of the object in steady, fluid motions.
  • Allow time to dry between coats.
  • There are some spray-paints that have a built-in primer, which makes the job of painting that much easier and quicker.
  • If using a normal spray-paint, first spray a coat of metal primer.
