Spray paints (สีสเปรย์, which is termed in Thai) are the perfect tools for artists to enhance the beauty of objects and surfaces. While you look at some sober old piece of furniture and want to turn it into some creative, colorful piece, this is what you need. All you need is to take care of a few things before spraying your surfaces.
Choosing Right Surface
You only need to choose an adequate surface to drop your creativity on it. primarily work fine on surfaces that are clean, dry, and free of rust, dirt, and other debris.
Prepare The Area
While spraying, it must be necessary that the area you choose is a well-ventilated workspace, such as outdoors, so that you don’t inhale fumes. And it would be far better if you covered yourself with a mask and gloves to protect your lungs and skin.
Choose The Right Spray Paint
Depending on your surface, it is essential to choose the spray that provides a better texture and desired finish. And be sure that the paint you select is also durable and scratch-resistant.
Avoid Thick Coating
Avoid thick coats while painting; always try to apply several thin coats if possible. This way, it will help to prevent drips and provide a much smoother texture on it. And allow each coat to dry before applying the next one on it.
Which Paint Is Right For You?
Well, by now, you must’ve been familiar with spray paint, but what’s also essential is to look up to your product. It is also necessary that the spray paint that you are using is adequate for your surface.
And once you’ve chosen your spray accordingly to your surface, make sure the finishes you choose include matte, gloss, satin, metallic, and more.
It would be much better if you choose the spray paint that has high quality. Look for a high-quality spray paint that provides good coverage, durability, and resistance to chipping and fading. A good quality spray will also give a glossy finish and minimal overspray or drip.
Harmful Effects Of Spray Paints
Spray paints contain many harmful chemicals, such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which can harm the lungs if inhaled in large amounts. And if these chemicals somehow can contact either skin or eyes, they can also cause eye irritation, redness, itching, and swelling. Hence, it is essential to take a proper safety procedure and wear a mask and gloves before using it.
