Spray paint is a great way to give a new look to any object, but it's important to know what surfaces it won't stick to. Most spray paints don't adhere well to plastic surfaces and can peel off, bubble, chip, or flake quickly, making the surface look worse than before it started. The main reason why spray paint doesn't stick is because you're applying paint that's too thick. An incorrect paint surface can also prevent the paint from sticking.
If there is any type of residue or wax on the surface, the chances of the spray paint sticking are very slim.If you applied light coats of spray paint and painted in an air-conditioned space, four days is a good amount of time to wait before using the newly painted object. The time needed to allow the primer to dry before spray painting an item can vary depending on the brand of spray paint. If you apply paint spray too thickly to a surface, the outer surface will dry faster than the inner surface.The number of coats needed to get full coverage when spray painting any item is at least 2 lightweight coats, maybe even 3 applied at different angles to make sure everything is covered. Do I have to wait 24 to 48 hours for the paint to dry before sanding those areas and reapplying the spray paint? The way to get rid of it would be to sand the paint as best you can and then seal the table with a primer that blocks odors and then paint.The other advantage of using spray paint instead of brush paint is the ease of use on textured objects, such as wicker, where there are many corners and crevices in the surface where the paint enters, they are much easier to paint without paint accumulating when trying to insert a brush loaded with paint.
Thinking about spraying outdoor chairs with your product? The chair has a material similar to glitter. What is the best spray paint to use so that it doesn't come off your clothes? I tried to spray paint a transparent matte spray paint on a chalkboard art to make it permanent and it left a dust-like powder everywhere.
