    Thank you for the valuable infos!I wish I knew all this before waisting 3 cans of paint and a lot of time and nerves:))!I dont know if you are active anymore and have the time to answer me but there goes one question!I bought some plastic mandala stencils/patterns and everytime I try to use them doesnt get like it should,nice,clean and uniform.A lot of drips under those stencils that ruining the paint and time and the nice mandala!Do you have any tips for this kind of spray painting to get it right and clean?Thank you so much in advance!

    • Danica says:

      Hi Daniel! I’d recommend using a sponge to dab the paint on instead. Using very little paint should help reduce paint from getting underneath the stencil. Good luck!

    Thank you so much for writing this up! Just spray painted a wall shelf with several shelves and each one has dried drip globs and I was afraid to sand it off and re spray those areas. I appreciate it

    Thank you…I’ve literally just dripped the hell out of my car door, so this might just sort me out.

    Thanks for your advice. I’m currently fighting a gritty finish on tin plate using Ace Hdw gloss black paint. Have you ever heated your spray can in a tub of hot tap water

    • Danica says:

      I haven’t tried that before! Sometimes a gritty finish just needs a light sanding and another top coat. Or perhaps a Rustoleum paint might give you a smoother finish?

    I used epoxy appliance paint on my vanity and got some drips on the back part where the wall meets. Will sanding it work the same with epoxy paint?

    • Danica says:

      Hi Joanne! Yes, it may take a little longer since it’s an epoxy paint, but you should still be able to sand it down smooth and repaint it.

    I got here by googling how to spray paint furniture. Great tips! I will let you know how it goes:) video examples are super helpful!

  11. 2on says:

    Thanks for the tips! The spray painting tool I will never go without is my Rust-Oleum "spray Grip" that fits over the top of the can/nozzle. It has a trigger so that you get a very even spray–and no paint on your finger. 🙂
