mark dennis: There are a lot of tricks, but to help you out, you blend it in by starting your arm moving before you spray the paint and keep your arm moving after you stop. This causes the paint to flow without having an actual starting or stopping place. Hope this helps you out...
Chris Verrico: How do u spray without getting flashing or holidays or start and stop marks I'm so sick of old school brushing and rolling
Oscar Briceno: u never gonna get even coats if someone isnt backrolling...duh
mark dennis: Here is my thoughts: #1, if the paint is too thin, it will run down the wall easier than when it is thick. #2, with the pressure on full, it will be spraying out the maximum amount of paint, which can also cause streaks because there is too much paint, and #3, you could be using too large of a tip for the paint you are using. The last one isn't as likely because latex is pretty thick, however, you are thinning it, so, it could be a possibility. Thinning may be your only problem. Hope this helps!
eli93402: I have the same prayer (it's the green model but I'm pretty sure its the same) and I'm having trouble getting an even coat. I'm using latex paint thats been thinned down and the sprayer is on full pressure. I use a consistent motion and over lap each spray by 50%, but when light hits the walls just right you can see streaks. It's really frustrating having to paint the walls multiple times trying to get rid of the streaks. Any tips? I'm about to give up on the sprayer and just roll everything.
andresstatestreet: Great videos. Thx
mark dennis: Sure. I am painting my pole barn with it in about a month and I will put out a video on it when I do. I am sure you are going to like yours. I really like mine...
Goofy Goof: Cool, Watched the videos. I just ordered one myself. Looks like I got a good Sprayer.
Thanks for the info. in the videos.
mark dennis: Sorry I somehow missed your post till now. A sprayer is definitely the way to go. I use a 415 or a 515 for just about everything. It is recommended that you use a .015 to .017 for latex and a .017 to .019 for oil base primers. I use a 415 and a 515 for just about everything, but then I usually use latex. I hope this helps. I will be doing a post on my blog explaining tip sizes this weekend. Thanks for visiting,
maciverandy1: sure no prob!
mark dennis: I don't separate the hoses, but I did manage to figure out the process of using the waste bucket to save some of the otherwise wasted paint and to get rid of the watered down paint. It took me a couple of times to figure it out though. I'm slower than most... Thanks for sharing your knowledge with everyone!
maciverandy1: when he talks about the priming contamination he means the hose that is next to the main hose that pulls the paint. normally you want a "crap" bucket to spray all the contamination into. I actually keep these two hoses in different buckets for the whole spraying process. it also helps to have a bucket to spray all your waste in after you are done. spray the paint left in your line until you notice the water thinning the paint out and then spray the rest into the crap bucket.
maciverandy1: 5-17 or 5-15
mark dennis: No, I didn't get any over-spray on the window. I used a brush to paint the trim and window sill.
Thanks for watching!
maciverandy1: u didn't get overspray on the window? shouldn't you have masked it?
Mark Dalius: Great stuff, sir. Very nice to see somebody else give a solid tutorial. Actually looking forward to the project! Thanks very much.
ragandoil: Gday Mate , ... millgod no vapour from water based paint , particles are almost dry when the hit the floor ... when using oil base ... vapor mask
tonyaalicia11 ... 515 id a good size tip .. if your doing dry wall 1st coat 40% water and paint mix .. called mist coat . then over coat when dry
tonyaalicia11: what size tip do i need for spraying primer. we are looking to prime our 3500 sq ft house new drywall thought this would be best
mark dennis: It won't help on paint vapors, but when I spray ceilings, I don't want to breath the paint mist.
Thanks for your interest!
milllgod: hey buddy, I believe that protection there on your face is a dust mask...which is probably usefull if your sanding paint, but i'm not too sure about how well it protects against paint vapors...
mark dennis: Absolutely. In fact, acrylics are thinner than Latex. The Ryobi paint station comes with a .015 sprayer tip and .013-.015 is the recommended size for acrylics. This sprayer can spray just about anything, but you may need to purchase some smaller tips if you are going to be spraying stains or varnishes. They are thinner and the tip that is included is better for acrylics, latex, and oil based paints.
I hope this helps.
Dee Cruz: Can this sprayer take acrylic paint?
Henry Urrego: very bad explication only for 2m2
mark dennis: I really like mine. When the weather breaks, I'll be painting the pole barn and I'll do another video then.
AndroidPop: Can't wait to see the next video, I'm gonna start using mines tonight
mark dennis: Thank you SO much! I am new to using an airless sprayer, so I can use all the help I can get. Feel free to point out anything else you see.
ragandoil: Gday mate .. you didn't bleed the gun, you put contamination into your main bucket from the priming .... if you get a run on the wall roller it out ..i do over a 1000 sq ft per day
Jerri Davis: Very Interesting!
