Unlike most wall paintings which use ‘heavier’ equipment such as paint brushes or paint rollers, spray painting is directly used from the can. You will need old newspapers of plastic tarp material to protect your working area from the spay dust. The right clothing is also needed while spray painting, since some of the components of the paints are hazardous. You will require an old rag that will be used in cleaning and accidental paint application. In some instances, you may require to cordon off some area of the surfaces so else to stop paint getting on them. You can even you the tape to create artistic impressions, especially when you are using different colors.

Some of these clothing’s can be purchased from online paint supplies and accessories. You can buy from reputed painting companies for standard services in Gold Coast that includes clothing and other accessories at affordable rates. When you have your equipment gathered around you can move on to the next step of cleaning the surface to be painted. It’s of paramount importance to clean a surface since paint does not adhere properly on dirty surfaces and also it can be hard to attain a smooth finish on dirty surfaces. You can either use an old rug or a household cleaner to help cleaning the surfaces. The rag should be damp when you wipe off any dirt that is hanging on the surface you are working on.
In case the surface has sticky material like stickers which refuse to come off, then it should be scraped off using a scraper and through the cleaning process. Thic issue occurs while working on residential painting where residents stick some hangings on the walls.This can be rectified companies offering residential house painting services in Gold Coast which can be dealt by experts. Some surfaces may have wax on them (spray paint may not stick well on such surfaces); it should be removed by sanding the surface. Sanding allows the surface to feel rough and thus paint can adhere properly. The crucial part of spray painting is protecting yourself from the toxic material, with that in mind you should always work in open and well ventilated areas.
Now you are ready to start preparing the work area, place newspapers with heavy material on them (to stop them from being blown away). Use the painters tape to cordon off your desired areas, making sure the paint does not leak underneath the surface. Once you are fully armed with your protective gear you can now begin the process. You begin by applying primer on the surface; you can apply two coats but one is enough. And then you should apply the spray paint on the surface. Remember to shake the primer and spray paints can before use. Don’t apply many coats; they tend to make the surface to be easily smudged, so a thin coat is desirable.
