So I used my HVLP sprayer for the first time last weekend (practicing) and it seemed to work pretty well! I thinned the paint out with Windshield Washer fluid. For my first time using it, I think I got pretty good results.
I have the day off tomorrow and plan on painting some of our doors (for our house remodel). I have a few questions.
These are old doors that I have sanded down, and am painting white….
Do you need to still use primer as the first coat when spraying?
Are drying times shorter when spraying? My primer says wait 1 hour before painting, and my paint says wait 4 hours before recoating. It seemed to me that my (practicing) project dried a lot quicker compared to brushing it on.
How many coats should I be shooting for? (how thick to spray each coat) 2-3 coats of paint?
