Paint a chair with a spray can

Many chair models have rounded, thin, fine, arched, narrow or otherwise filigree-shaped components. A fresh coating with the spray can not only facilitates the application, but can also favorably influence the uniform coating distribution. Important in this work are working environment and dose.

Decisive influencing factors

Unlike many home craftsmen assumed, painting with a spray can takes effort and time. The spray itself is a little bit just the "tip of the iceberg". In order to achieve good results, the focus of work shifts to the preparation. Typical influencing factors are:

  • Working temperature
  • Wind flow and draft
  • drying situation
  • spraying distance
  • Uniformity in quantity and angle

Pre-processing of the chair components

Of course, spray paint is as dependent on the condition of the surfaces and surfaces of the chair as on the brush applied variants. According to the material, wood or metal, the chair must be sanded down or the wood parts should be pickled. Dismantling is in some cases less extensive necessary.

When painting the chair, thinner layers of paint are applied during spraying. Unlike painting, dirty or imperfect surfaces can not be "concealed" or compensated.

Organize environmental conditions

It is not without reason that paint shops in the industry are hermetically sealed off and as far as possible shielded from all external influences. For successful spray painting, a kind of undisturbed coating chamber atmosphere should also be created in the private sector. In addition, the volatility of the paint must be considered.

When beautifying the chairs, the following measures help to achieve an optimal painting result:

  • Room temperature twenty degrees Celsius plus / minus two degrees
  • Suppression of air flow during spraying (closed window and door)
  • Respiratory and eye protection during spraying
  • Generous lining of the work environment with cover foils
  • The distance should always be about twenty centimeters and "go along" according to the component shapes
  • Alternately cross-shaped spraying of the different paint runs
  • Spray angle from both sides 45 or middle ninety degrees
  • The thinner the single layer, the better the overall result
  • Perform at least three, better five, spray turns from alternate angles
  • After spraying, allow slight draft to allow for drying support

Tips & Tricks

Understand painting by spraying more than art than crafting. Coloring surfaces with colored fog is more like a dance than sweeping or sweeping a surface.
