It's important to use proper ventilation when spray painting. Working outdoors is the best option.
Spray paint won’t stick well if the humidity or temperature is not maintained. It's best to spray paint in warm weather with humidity below 65%.
Cover the area you will be painting and its surrounding with newspapers or cardboard.
Make sure to use protective gear such as goggles, gloves, and masks before you start painting to block the spray paint fumes.
Store spray paint according to the directions on the container. This means not leaving them in a cold basement as they may freeze or overheat.
Clean-remove any dust, dirt or grease. Primer-if needed, prime your piece. Paint-shake the spray paint can for about 3-4 minutes Drying-let the paint dry completely.
