WAGNER make a number of different
electric paint sprayers you can use to paint your walls. I'm gonna use the FLEXiO
Universal handheld version. It comes with two reservoirs, it allows
you to do all the painting indoors and outdoors, any paints, any color, any brand. The large reservoir is for doing the walls and ceilings, emulsion paint and you can even use smooth masonry paint for outside. The small reservoir is for your woodwork and your metalwork. You can use gloss, undercoat, primer,
eggshell, satin, wood preservatives, lacquers and even metal paints. I'm also going to be using the extension handle. This simply clips to the units itself
and any of your attachments and it gives me an extra 600 millimeter reach so I can get to the ceilings keeping my feet firmly on the floor.
I'm going to be painting the ceiling and walls two different colors but I don't have to worry about cutting in at the moment. I'm simply going to spray the ceiling white,
let it dry, then mask up the ceiling and spray the walls blue. But of course when doing any spraying,
don't forget your mask and your safety specs. Now the white paint is on the ceiling and the wall behind me is dry and ready to paint this wall blue. But of course I want a perfect straight line between
the blue wall and the white likewise with the ceiling. So this was really easy to achieve when you use your masking kit. I'm going to start off in the bottom corner, sticking it to the wall on the white side – which is dry –
all the way up to the top and across the ceiling.
Then I can simply spray my area blue, not worry about any overspray going onto the white bit. Then of course, once it's dry, I could remove that out of way. That is going to get you a perfect straight line between the two colors and save you hours and hours of cutting in with a paintbrush. Now I'm sure all of you who've had the
experience on painting walls with a roller, you know how physically harder is
and also time-consuming when you have to do two or three coats
waiting for drying times in between coats.
That is the past!
Spray paint technology is the way forward. It's a lot quicker and easier but there is a couple of factors that you must consider. When you're spraying the wall keep the nib away from the surface. You also want to keep it moving at all times at a consistent pace. When I'm spraying up and down
I like to pass over 50% out of time. So you kind of getting two coats of paint
when you're going up and down. Once you've done one wall turn the nozzle
and then go from side to side. That way you're getting 2 solid coats – up and down and left to right – which is going to give you a true professional finish in a fraction of the time..
