Put on your protective gear. Before you begin using Action Paint, make sure to ensure you are in an environment that is suitable for painting and that you take precautions. ALWAYS READ THE INSTRUCTIONS. If required, put on your respirator mask, and we always recommend using safety glasses, and disposable gloves. The safety glasses will help to protect you in case any of the paint blows back towards your face, and disposable gloves will keep paint off your hands. We recommend using a ventilator mask in conditions where there isn't much ventilation or if you are spray painting a lot. Put these on before you do any painting.
Take a break if you feel even the slightest bit dizzy, queasy, or have difficulty breathing. Remember, your health and safety is always more important than your project.
Shake the can well. Shake the paint can for about three to four minutes before you get started. This will help to ensure that the paint is mixed well, which is crucial to ensure that the colour will be consistent for your project.
Remember that you cannot shake the can too much, but you can shake it too little.
Do a spot test. Start by spraying your paint on an inconspicuous area of the item or on a scrap piece of wood or cardboard. This will give you an idea of how the paint will look when you spray paint your item. It will also give you a chance to test which distance gives you the desired effect ALWAYS READ THE INSTRUCTIONS.
Action paint is designed for use on Hard, Non-porous, sealed surfaces. This is because if the paint is able to soak into a substrate then the remover cannot get access to it to remove.
Therefore, always do a test on a small area of the surface then remove to ensure it is OK to use.
There are a VAST amount of guides and "how to's" on the internet. We are looking to partner with some of the better ones to improve our support however until then we suggest browsing for "How to Spray Paint" and also look at the many videos on YouTube.
