Money Mike: Can you tell me the psi level you have the sprayer up to?
Money Mike: you could have just rolled the freaker with a 440 mm fluffy roller. Saves your sprayer and tips and uses less paint. it's really quick. Cut in with the sprayer though.
Chris Verrico: How do u avoid lines when spraying I have a titan 440 I and had pressure all the way up and have lines in my doors and ceiling? Please help ha
Chris Verrico: So if ur spraying the ceilings first obviously ur cutting in and rolling rest of job by brush and roller right? Cuzz if u were gonna spray everything wouldn't u spray trim first then walls and ceiling last to get that nice crisp line??
Chris Verrico: How do u keep ur goggles clean when u spray or do y not use them?
Steven Thaw: No eye protection? To avoid stripes, spray cross hatch meaning north to south then east to west.
howtopaintinfo: Not sure of exact distance but it would be about 18 inches, it could have been a little closer but I was working at a comfortable level rather then stretching too much to get the extra height.
24t68Jm1: how far away is the spray gun from the ceiling? 2 feet? my graco recommends holding the gun 1 foot away from the surface being painting, looks like you're getting good coverage though....great vid!!!
howtopaintinfo: It's ok, it's not my radio.
minshki9: oh no.. you forgot to cover your nice new Makita radio.. the overspray is going to ruin it..
howtopaintinfo: There are a few reasons for rolling walls, firstly a spray finish can't be touched up without it being seen, also there is all the masking time involved when spraying walls. Its up to you if you spray the walls or not.
howtopaintinfo: Personally I only spray ceilings and I always back roll the final coat. Generally its best to roll the final coat on the walls, most painters I know do it that way, they spray ceilings first then all the trim and finish off by rolling the walls.
howtopaintinfo: Your basically saying exactly how it has been done in the video, the cornice was sprayed first, spraying was overlapped by 50%, the only thing that you can’t see in the video is the full window frontage that is behind the camera. Also if you notice my back it to the light source of the small window, this way you can see what you are doing, its only when I turn to do the last bit that its hard to see.
TheUnbeen: I woulda started at that small window, sprayed the cornice first, then worked from the cornice to the bulkhead in straight lines, over lapping 50%, that way you will not loose the wet edge and made my way down the hall, work away from the light source so you'll be able to see the wet shine.
Joel de Leseleuc: how would you do it?
TheUnbeen: not how i would do it
