TIP: How to Spray a Uniform Thickness

Jul 6, 2016 | Expert's Corner | 0 comments

To spray a uniform thickness on a wide surface such as a tabletop, hold the spray gun perpendicular to the work (lock your wrist so you don’t rock the gun back and forth) and overlap each spraying stroke by 50 percent.

Begin with the spray pattern half on and half off the front edge of the surface and then overlap each additional stroke by half until the last, which should be half on and half off the surface.

So you are actually applying a double thickness and calling it one “coat,” but it’s the best way to get an even build.
