There’s no secret to the advantages of a sprayed paint finish. If applied cor- rectly, spraying a coat of paint will result in a smooth uniform finish without runs or brush marks. And when it comes to selecting what tools to use to spray the paint, DIY’ers and pros alike now have more options than ever.
TOUCH-UP IN A FLASH Whereas cans of spray paint are limited in color choices, the Preval Sprayer system enables
you to spray any color of latex paint you choose. Here’s how this unique system works: Choose your paint of prefer- ence and load it into the glass containers that come with the Preval kit. Thin the paint as neces- sary for spray application, then screw a can of Preval Sprayer propellant onto the paint jar. The sprayer draws paint from the container (via a plastic straw) and then sprays it in a fine mist onto the workpiece. This achieves a professional-grade finish on
virtually any surface without mix- ing the paint and propellant, which ensures no color change to the paint. This handy, portable paint system is perfect for touch-ups on metal, concrete, wood, pottery, ceramic and glass, and it’s com- patible with any exterior paint, stain or dye.
