USING A PAINT SPRAYER TO DO FINAL WALL COLORS

We have been painting the "old fashioned" way forever, using the sprayer to do a prime coat on everything, ceilings, walls ...but  time is short and lots of work to do. Is there a particular tip and type of shield pros use to get that perfect cut between wall and ceiling and is it really reliable? Different when doing a project for a paying customer than just at home.

Hello LEABETH.:smileyvery-happy:

 

I am sorry that you had to wait on an answer so long - I hope we can still help out.

 

A "perfect cut line" can be achieved with a top quality metal spray shield like the one below:

Place the shield in the corner of both surfaces and spray within the span of the shield - being careful not to over spray outside the edges.  This technique heavily depends on how true (or straight ) the corner is.  If the corner is buckled or bowed out in any way, then the line left after painting will reflect that imperfection.  You may find that you still will have to come back with a brush to fine tune certain areas.

 

The most productive way to paint a whole room (or hole house) is to spray the ceilings first, then the trim and finish by brushing and rolling the walls.
