If you want to apply a layer of paint or lacquer, we recommend that you start by sanding and degreasing the surface. By sanding and degreasing you make sure that any unevenness disappears. In addition, the final result will look tighter! Use a primer after sanding and degreasing. A primer ensures a better adhesion between the lacquer or paint and the surface.
It is important to spray in a dust-free area. In addition, make sure the surface is at room temperature.
Before you start spraying, it is wise to shake the spray can for at least 2 minutes.
Keep a distance of 10 to 15 centimetres from the surface when spraying lacquer or paint. This way you avoid bubbles and streaks.
Before starting a second layer, it is important to let the layer ‘evaporate’ for at least 5 minutes. After the second layer you can apply a clear coat of paint or varnish after 30 minutes. The clear coat can also be sprayed in two layers. Keep 5 minutes in between.
Are the layers on? Are you satisfied? Then we recommend applying an extra layer of clear varnish. You can choose between high gloss, silk gloss and matt. A clear varnish protects the colour. Think of weather influences, but also, for example, scratches.
Tip! After spraying, it is best to keep the spray can upside down. Then press the spray can until only wax gas comes out. In this way, the cap and tube will be sprayed clean and you can start working with the spray can again next time.
