Invisible paint


I am currently spraying the walls in my shop with a pearl white latex paint . The second coat is impossible to see while spraying, I have tried additional lighting from the top, back, side , and still feel like I am spraying with invisible paint . The only time I can see what kind of a job I did is when I stand way back from the wall and view it from an angle . Any ideas how I can see the paint going on while I spray ? Thanks !

Can't you put a light at an angle to your work and see the shine of the wet paint on the wall?

Hey, I actually saw that field when I was in the Orient. I know, because it had your name on it. You've got a typo or two there tho. Where you say 18, it should say 58. And, yes I don't doubt they are virgins - anyone that ugly just about "has" to be a virgin. And, where you say sheer silk, it should say stained silk. However, I "will" attest to the care they give those tea plants. They even fertilize the plants on a regular basis. Enjoy your tea.

troublemaker on an errand to the shop to pick up a can of striped paint. Shop teacher (and every subsequent teacher) immediately realized the joke and had troublemaker running all over the school from teacher to teacher for the entire science period.
Lmao!

There is a story about this from the Army -- One morning, the Sargent sends a recruit to go get a bucket of striped paint. Recruit goes off to the QM, who (oddly enough!) doesn't have any. Next stop, the motor pool, where he explains his problem to the Master Sargent, and asks to check out a jeep, to go into town to find some. The MSgt goes along with the gag, and signs him out a jeep.
The recruit is gone _all_day_, gets back *just* before curfew. The motor pool sargent is still on duty -- for reasons unexplained. Unlikely as it may seem, he took pity on the recruit, and gently explained that there was no such thing as striped paint. "I know _that_, Sarge", the recruit replied, but looking for it got me out of the duty work detail, _and_ I got to spend the day in town, with a jeep!"
I've good reason to believe this is a _true_ story -- I heard it, first hand, from one of the involved parties. The recruit in question is a relative, Where: Fort Hood, TX. When, 1960s.

The troublemaker was not so dumb after all. He got out of science class without a detention for skipping. Well, on the other hand he didn't get the education he should have, so perhaps not so bright either.

_SOMEBODY_ (unfortunately, right now I can't think _who_) makes an add-in for paint that is *exactly* that. Comes as a powdew to be mixed into the paint. Purple when it's wet, goex clear as it dries.
Dunno what happens if you go to wash the painted surface at a later date. :)

I've only seen this used for flat ceiling paint, already pre-mixed in it. It only comes in one color (white), though the 'wet color' can vary, pink, purple, blue. Not sure if there's some limitation for not being able to use it with glossy paint.
I've used it in a few rooms. Getting it wet doesn't seem to turn it pink (ours was pink) again, but we found that when painting the closet walls after doing the ceiling, concentrated paint fumes seems to make it turn vaguely pink again (the ammonia, maybe). This didn't happen until after we'd painted it, gone away for awhile, and gone back in to check how things looked.

Hi Rich, Most stores around here sell a ceiling paint designed to deal with that problem. It has a blue tinge but dries white. But then again, if you already have the paint... .

You should be able to see the wet line going on if you're spraying it right Rich. Stand so that you can watch your fan and see it as it goes on - usually a bit from the leading side. Spray for an even wet pattern and don't worry about coverage. If you stand back after you're done and discover you need another coat - do it all again.

After living in our new home for 6 years my wife decided that we should paint the interior of the house AND ceilings. We have heavily textured 10" high ceilings. My wife literally had to shine a spot light on the cieling surface so that I could get a wet paint reflection so that I could see what had been painted and what remained to be painted.
If you cannot see the difference I would say that you are finished painting.
