Neat and Tidy Lines

A compressed air sprayer can be a fantastic tool for adding detail to any project. Spray guns will come with different attachments for different jobs, so make sure you’re using the right one. With a thin nozzle you can create patterns and add finishing touches to your project. You can even use tape to help you paint neat lines, or even a chevron pattern for something a bit more exciting.

Some people have even used pattern materials such as lace or wire fences to create negative voids in the spray paint. This will leave you with an interesting decorative finish.

Perfect Gloss Finish

If you’re looking for a perfect gloss finish to your work, Teamac Rapidry QD Enamel will work in perfect harmony with a compressed air sprayer. Getting a gloss finish is all about it looking smooth, shiny and professional. Teamac paint is an excellent choice for primed metal surfaces, especially if you’re looking for something colourful! Work slowly and in a systematic pattern to get a nice even finish. This air sprayer will speed up the amount of time it would take you to paint with a brush, so don’t feel the need to rush it!


Updated Furniture

It’s not everyone’s first thought when you think about using a compressed air sprayer, but as we mentioned earlier paint sprayers can be fantastic for adding detail.  Whether it’s inside or out of your property, we bet you can find something that would look fantastic – with the right paint. If you have benches outside your building, or even inside, spraying them with a bold gloss colour would give them an instant update!
