Well, could be. You did not specify what type of paint you are spraying onto what type of material....

Are you filtering your paint? do you have an air line evaporator? The secret to drying compressed air is to COOL it first, often with long air lines (or refrigeration unit), then the vapor separator. If the air is still hot, vapor will not be separated.

and by textured, do you mean raised bumps or valleys?

Most times when the paint looks "textured", this usually has the appearance of an orange peel. This is caused by the paint being too thick, not enough air pressure at the gun, and or spraying the paint too slow or too close.

What is the best way to lay down the clear coat over my finish coat on the fender I just painted but ruined when I shot the clear coat?


Refer to the paint manufacturer's data sheet to ensure the new gun has the right setup for clearcoat.

Could be the new gun was supplied setup for spraying a high solids primer or something that needs something like a 0.7 mm fluid tip. Clearcoat would need a 0.4 mm tip, an appropriate needle and a different air cap.

Data sheets are very valuable things. Don't forget to pick one up when you buy spray paint. A viscosity cup is another useful addition to the tool kit along with a graduated paint stirring stick.

I have an old white refrigerator that works fine, just looks awful. What can I do to the face to make it look nice. I have wooden oak kitchen cabinets and a tile floor.


Paint it with white enamel.
Enamel Paint finishes in high gloss if you want that sort of finish.
Always paint in a dust free invironment with plenty of ventiallation.
With the expensive cost of many home appliances, sometimes replacing an old refrigerator is out of the question, especially if it still works well.
This can be a problem if you've recently painted your kitchen or if you're just sick of looking at an old, outdated fridge.
Instead of learning to live with your boring or unattractive refrigerator, you can give it a bright new look with a few coats of paint.
Mix a few tablespoons of vinegar into a bucket of warm soapy water.
Use this mixture to clean the refrigerator.
Scrub away any grease, dirt or other grime with your soapy water and a stiff bristled scrub brush. Wipe the refrigerator dry with a towel when it is clean.

Use painter's tape to cover parts of the refrigerator you do not want to paint such as the handle or the grate at the bottom of the refrigerator.

Apply a coat of appliance paint to your refrigerator with a paint roller to prime the surface.
You can also purchase appliance paint in a spray can and use it to spray paint your refrigerator.


Sand the paint with an extra fine grit sanding sponge when it is completely dry.
Try to make the surface as smooth as possible and then wipe away any dust created with a clean towel.


Paint the refrigerator with an enamel paint tinted to the desired color and a paint roller.
You can use oil-based or latex-based enamel depending on your preferences.
Oil paints usually have a stronger odor than latex paints but they may last longer.

Apply a second coat of paint when the first coat is completely dry.

Sand the final coat of paint when it is dry with a wet extra fine sanding sponge.
Spray the refrigerator with water while you work to keep it damp and keep sanding until the paint is smooth and shiny.


Remove all of the painter's tape from your painted refrigerator.

Had painters spray ZInnser BIN on a 60's textured ceiling that had no apparent problems. That was followed with spraying a coat of ceiling paint- don't know what but it was reputable brand;pr


I would say this was a moisture or curing problem. The painters also may not have allowed enough time to dry between coats or put on far too much application at one time which caused the weight of the product to sag. I'd call Zinnser first to inquire, then go back to the head of the company the painters work for and report their error.

How to bring back the color....what to put on it????


In this article you will learn the best way to spray paint anything from wood frames auto parts.
Difficulty: Moderate Instructions things you'll need:

  • primer
  • spray paint
  • microfiber towl
  • 300 grit sandpaper
  • 800, 1000,1200,1500 grit wetsand paper
  • 2000 grit wetsand paper
  • clearcoat
  • rubbing compound
  • medium cut polish
  • wax
    • 1

      Start by removing the part that needs to be painted. (You can also tape around it, but be careful about overs pray)

    • 2

      Sand the part with the 300 grit sand paper until the surface is a little rough. This is necessary for the primer to bond with the surface. After sanding wipe down the part with micro fiber cloth.

    • 3

      Lightly spray the part with primer. A few light coats are better than one heavy coat. Make sure to allow proper drying time between coats.

    • 4

      After a few light coats of primer have been applied, wetsand with the 800 grit sandpaper. After wet sanding, wipe again with micro fiber cloth.

    • 5

      Now it is time to apply the color. When spraying the spray paint make sure to use smooth even passes across what is being painted. Do not start painting on top of the part because the paint will be heavier in that area. When painting you want to press and release the button to the side of the product being painted. Again a few light coats are better than one heavy one and make sure to allow proper drying time between coats.

    • 6

      After you are satisfied with the color, wetsand with 800 grit sandpaper and then wipe with micro fiber cloth.

    • 7

      Now it is time for the clear coat. Spray the clear coat the same way as the spray paint. Only one or two light coats are needed. Allow the clear coat plenty of time to dry as this is the layer that you will see most. You don't want any fingerprints on your final surface!

    • 8

      After the clear coat has had more than enough time to dry, You now want to wetsand with the 800 grit, then the 1000 grit, then 1200, then 1500, and finally the 2000 grit sandpaper. This should remove any heavier spots in the clear coat and will polish your painted product up very nicely.

    • 9

      Next you need to remove the scratches left by the 2000 grit. For this you will need to buff the surface with rubbing compound.

    • 10

      Now you need to buff the surface with a medium cut polish to give the surface a nice glassy look.

    • 11

      Whether it be exterior or interior parts that have been painted, I always add a couple coats of wax to the surface. This acts as a protectant to the clearcoat and gives it a nice smooth feel and also helps repel dirt.

How could i put a glitters with my wall at my facebook


  • SPRAY CLEAR GLITTER ON DRY WALLS -- Go to your local craft store and pick up a couple cans of spray glitter. You want a clear base so you can keep your current wall color. Look for a spray that says something like clear glitter finish or clear glitter sealer. Then just spray your walls with the clear glitter spray.

  • PAINT YOUR WALLS WITH GLITTER SPRAY PAINT -- If you want to change the color of your walls you can spray paint them with colored glitter spray paint so you get the painting and glitter done in one easy step. However, spray paint can be expensive and you may find it is difficult to get a nice even coat of paint. So this method would be good for a small room or an accent wall.

  • PAINT YOUR WALLS THEN ADD GLITTER -- This is the cheapest way to get the glittery look you want. Buy your wall paint in the color of your choice. Then buy tubes of glitter in the craft section. As you paint your walls, do one small section at a time. Then pour out a bit of glitter on a paper plate and gently blow on the glitter so it blows onto the freshly painted wall. The glitter will stick to the wet paint. Then move on to the next section and do the same thing! If you are applying two coats of paint to your walls add the glitter to the second coat.

    Can you restore the brushed aluminum front fork lower tubes from road nicks


    Yes... and no... A lot of these aluminum parts are coated with clear coat paint. Fixing the texture could take off more clear coat. If they're not cleared then it's pretty simple. Depending on the size of the nicks pick a sandpaper that will take them out... usually 120 for smaller nicks, work your way up to 400. Make sure you sand in the direction that you want your brushed texture. Finish it off with a red scotchbrite pad. This should be really close to the texture of the original finish.

    I want to know how to camouflage a jeep the best


    Knowing how to paint a Jeep in camo patterns means you can hide your Jeep in the woods, marshy areas or in open fields without it being easily seen. Using Mossy Oak's Shadow Grass pattern, paint your Jeep with natural-looking shadows and grass blades. The 3-D look of this pattern allows you to easily hide your Jeep from water fowl, doves, deer and big game.

    Things You'll Need:
    • Sandpaper (120 and 800 grit)
    • Wax and grease remover
    • Lint-free towel
    • Camo stencil
    • Masking tape
    • Masking paper
    • Respirator mask
    • Automotive primer
    • Automotive paint (black, gray, light tan and brown)
    • Automotive clear coat
    1. Sand the surface of the Jeep with 120-grit sandpaper until the surface is dull. You can use a dual-action sander for this step to speed the process. This removes the top clear coat and prepares the surface for primer. Primer won't stick to a shiny surface.
    2. Mask off areas of the Jeep that won't be painted, such as the windows, tires and passenger area of the Jeep. Wipe the surface with wax and grease remover and a lint-free towel.
    3. Spray primer on the Jeep in three thin coats. Allow each coat to dry completely. Once the primer is dry, use 800-grit sandpaper to sand the top layer of primer until smooth. This leaves a smooth surface for the paint. Wipe again with wax and grease remover and a lint-free towel.
    4. Paint a thin base coat of gray on the Jeep. Cover all of the primered areas on the Jeep so that no primer can be seen. Allow the paint to dry.
    5. Go over the Jeep with brown paint, spraying small areas of brown paint in no particular pattern. The finished effect should look like the Jeep is equally painted gray and tan. Hold the first stencil against the Jeep and use black paint to fill it in. Move the stencil over and paint again. Start at the front of the Jeep and work towards the rear.
    6. Move on to the next stencil and use light tan paint to spray the grass pattern. The grass should start at the bottom of the Jeep and reach up towards the top. For longer grass, don't spray the tops of the grass but instead move the pattern up, spray the stems longer and then spray the tops, making the grass stems long. Repeat this around the Jeep and across the hood. Go back over the grass stems with black paint, lightly spraying a few of the stems to give them a shadow look.
    7. Finish by spraying three coats of clear coat paint onto the painted areas of the Jeep. This protects the paint from UV rays and keep the camo pattern looking good.

    Tips & Warnings
    • Paint is best applied using a paint spray gun and air compressor, but canned spray paint will work.
    • Never sand or spray primer or paint without using a painter's respirator mask.

    GE Profile Refrigerator model #TXP24PRYE with yellowed handles


    Hi,

    Spray with clorox all purpose cleaner and scrub it with hot or warm damp wash cloth.If the handles are plastic, Krylon makes an excellent line of spray paint products that bonds to plastic and adheres to the surface. Most spray paint products only coat the plastic and on a surface like a handle that will be used constantly, is easily scratched or peeled. The Krylon plastic paint bonds to the plastic surface and is very durable. The one down side is if you paint the handles and don't like the results, there is no going backwards, you can't remove the paint once it has cured.

    Thanks.
