Krylon® Spray Paint Facts
Avoid spray paint misuse and ensure your project’s success by learning the facts about spray paint:
Myth: Spray painting isn’t safe.
Fact: Spray painting is safe! Simply follow the directions on the back of the Krylon spray paint can and ensure the area is properly ventilated.
Myth: I can’t spray paint indoors.
Fact: Yes you can! When spraying indoors, ensure you have adequate ventilation by using a fan or opening windows and doors. Spray painting outdoors provides the best ventilation.
Myth: All spray paints are the same.
Fact: Not all spray paints were created equally! Spray paints can be formulated to perform a specific function for a specific surface. For example, Krylon® Fusion for Plastic® is specifically formulated for use on plastic materials.
Myth: Primer is not always necessary.
Fact: We recommend using a primer whenever possible as it creates a clean, smooth surface that increases paint adhesion, seals your surface and ensures the true paint color is achieved.
Myth: If I complete my project in multiple stages, I won’t see a difference in color.
Fact: For best results, always apply a coat of paint to the entire project as opposed to spraying it in stages.
Myth: Spray paint overspray only occurs outdoors.
Fact: Overspray can occur both indoors and outdoors. Prevent overspray by using a drop cloth or creating your own “spray booth” by turning a large cardboard box on its side and place objects inside when spraying.
Myth: I can apply multiple coats of spray paint at any time.
Fact: Check the directions on the back of the can for your product’s recoat window, which identifies the timeframe for when additional coats can be applied.
