Is it better to spray or roll interior doors?
Whether you spray, brush or roll, you’ll get the best results if you prepare the door properly, and, because paint levels better on a horizontal surface, if you take the door down and lay it flat. Even if you have to paint the door in place, you can still get good results.

Do I need to thin paint for airless sprayer?
They’re extremely viscous, so whenever you spray them with a handheld, HVLP, or small airless sprayer, you need to thin them down. That’s true when you’re using anything other than a big airless unit. If you’re using a handheld or HVLP system to paint, you’re probably going to have to use as much as 20-30% water.
Why is my Wagner paint sprayer spitting paint?
Spray guns spit when air is being introduced into the fluid outside of at the air cap. A loose fluid nozzle does not properly seat in the tip of the spray gun and causes air to enter the fluid supply resulting in spitting.
Can you brush paint over spray paint?
Yes – you can paint over spray paint as long as it is completely dry, not just to the touch but really dried and cured. You need to sand the finish lightly with 100 grit sandpaper to provide something for the new paint to grab onto. If you sand too soon after spray painting you will create a gummy mess.
