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
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: 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.
TheUnbeen: not how i would do it
howtopaintinfo: It's ok, it's not my radio.
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.
minshki9: oh no.. you forgot to cover your nice new Makita radio.. the overspray is
going to ruin it..
Joel de Leseleuc: how would you do it?
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!!!
