Chalkboard Spray Paints Instructions for Best Results
Whether you are painting or cleaning or doing any other job, it is very necessary to follow proper instructions to get best results! There are many important factors including preparing surface, appropriate spraying techniques, analysis for additional coatings etc. Truworth will let you know all these essential factors in detail so that you can achieve best finish.
Preparing Your Surface: This is the first and most important thing to do if you want durable finish. In direct-words, coats of paint successfully bond to the surface if it is properly cleaned. Thus, your job must start from Inaugurating! Put out all dirt, dust, grease/oil (if any), and other contaminants from the surface with appropriate cleaning method. Possibly, you may want to apply chalkboard on the object which is already painted. In this case, you need to take care of loose paints and rust. If there is any removable paint or rust, you need to remove the same by using sandpaper or wire brush. It is advised to use primer for rusted surfaces and surfaces like steel.
Application of Chalkboard Spray: You may have used brush paint several times to paint your household items but the application of aerosol spray is bit different. People often think that job will be completed without any imperfection by pressing the spray nozzle only which is completely wrong. Before you begin spraying, you must shake your cane for a minute. Thereafter start painting your object with light coats. Keep your spray cane 20-25 cm away from the surface and maintain this distance while spraying. You also need to keep your cane in motion during spray for even finish.
