Are paint sprayers messy?
A paint sprayer will make a mess if you don’t know how to use it. However, if this isn’t you’re first rodeo, your paint sprayer shouldn’t leave a mess at all. It really depends on how well you use it. There are different spray guns out there with different nozzles and air pressures.
Should you water down paint for a sprayer?

Is it OK to cut in one day and paint the next?
But you’ll get better results if you cut in just one wall, then immediately roll out the wall before cutting in the next one. That’s because if you roll out the wall right away, while the cut-in paint is still wet, the cut-in paint and the wall paint will blend much better, reducing the chance of lap marks.
Is it better to spray or roll paint?
That means spray painting is the fastest way to paint large areas where you don’t need so much accuracy, like an exterior wall; roller painting is good for interior walls where you need to avoid getting paint on other surfaces; and brushes help you do the detail work.
Do paint sprayers need special paint?
The paint of choice used in sprayers should flow smoothly and evenly through the sprayer’s hose and out the nozzle without clogging. The lower the paint viscosity, or consistency, the better to use in a sprayer. Airless pain sprayers work with oil-based paint or stain.
