Spray Paint Guns 101

Monday, January 30, 2012

We decided to spray paint our kitchen cabinets for two reasons-one to achieve a smooth milky finish and two it's a huge time saver.

So first things first, do some research when searching for a spray gun. Decide what type of projects you will be tackling and how often. There are several types of  spray guns in the market- the most popular being air compressor and hlvp (high low volume pressure). I found hlvp was the way to go because you can paint just about anything and everything.  Ladies a little warning, you can even spray tan yourself with one! Just be sure not to get carried away or you'll end up looking like this....

So back to what I was saying, with an hlvp gun you can use it to apply water based, oil based paint, varnishes, lacquer and stains. Pretty awesome huh? One thing to know when using an hlvp is you will have to thin out the paint 20% with water otherwise the paint will come out thick and clumpy leaving your beautiful creations looking like a hot mess and you don't want that.
Fuji Spray

We decided on the Fuji mini mite 3 gravity gun after doing some research. Now I'll be honest with you it was a bit pricy and I was hesitant on making this purchase but it had everything we were looking for and then some. Lets just say this lil bad boy has made life so much easier for me.

If you don't want to make such a huge investment on one right away, try renting one from a tool store such as Home Depot. I don't know what type of brands they carry or how much they cost in your area but at my local Home Depot they wanted to charge me 85.00 for a few hours. For that price you may be better off in just purchasing one.

If you are in a budget I read some great things about Wagners 518080 Control Spray Max you can find it online for around $108.00 so it may be worth checking it out for those interested in a spray gun.

P.S. I will be doing a post on how to spray paint and my kitchen reveal in the coming week(s). So check back......

Happy Spray Painting!
