Spraying advice

Post by thatsnotafestool » Mon Aug 14, 2017 9:39 am

I know that there are some very knowledgeable sprayers here. I am faced with a humungous painting task in the house and thought about spraying. No furniture. No problem !

The paint manufacturer site says

and so what sort of kit do I need, please ?

Hire or buy ?

TIA

What paint is it Roger? Presumably if it is a large job then you are talking about walls so some sort of emulsion.

Little and Greene. The spec shown above is from their data sheet.

It's bloody good paint. Thick with pigment and unlike that coloured water from F&B.

Hi Roger

You will need an airless sprayer for this.

I have sprayed my house with this only recently and it really is a perfect finish (the plastering needs to be up to standard)

thats if you are spraying walls?!

That's pretty undemanding - small airless. Did our front rooms with one, and agree with Mark about finish.
