Coverage for Rust-Oleum’s Painter’s Touch and Universal Spray Paint is approx 2m2 per can, but this will depend upon surface profile/ porosity. It also depends on how thickly paint is applied...
Protecting from overspray. To prevent overspray onto other surfaces, use newspaper, masking tape or dust sheets to cover surrounding areas. You can also create your own “spray booth” by turning a large cardboard box on its side and place objects inside when spraying.
Practice your technique. Shake the can vigorously before spraying. Test your spraying technique in an inconspicuous area or on a piece of newspaper before beginning your project.
Apply multiple thin coats. Spray your object using several thin, multiple coats instead of one thick coat. Begin and finish your spray pattern off the object, releasing the button at the end of each pass. Use an even side-to-side motion with each pass overlapping your spray pattern by about one-third. For best results, always apply a coat to the entire project rather than completing parts of the project in stages.
Allow project to dry. Check the instructions on the can for recoat times. Do not be tempted to recoat too soon. When you are finished applying all coats, do not handle the project or surface until it is dry.
