Any one got an experience of using a spray gun for decorating?
The outside walls of my house are rendered and covered with tiny stones
and I would like to paint them white. They will be very tedious to
paint with a brush, and I wondered if a spray gun would be better. If
so, would the spray gun also be useful for internal decoration?
Yes, it's easier with a spray gun. However it is vital to pick
the correct paint and gun for the job. In general IME chuck it on spray
guns only work with thin liquids, I have sprayed a car with one and
would not do so again! I believe the HVLP systems are better with
thicker mixes. HP spray guns need a lot of air to cope with thick paint,
I wouldn't try it. For internal use the need to mask everything in the
room often means that spraying is more effort than just using a brush or
roller. The US is into spraying internal rooms, but IME, the results
frequently resemble Artex in surface finish.
