Spray Painting?

Wish I could spray like the guy in this video, it always looks really difficult like a skill you learn from loads of practice.

Does anyone spray on here? Is it worth sticking to cans or give the gun a go?

I used to spray two pack as part of my job years ago. 8/10's preparation and the rest perspiration. It's not easy when you're starting out, is a skill where good technique and practice pay off. A skill well worth acquiring in my view as it's very satisfying looking at a finished product.

Want a spray gun?

Like has been said it is a skill that comes with experience.For a one off though if you use two pack acrylic which you can buy online you can get a decent enough finish by putting on two or three coats, wet and drying it back and polishing.
This works really well where you haven't got a paintshop but it's still a lot of prep work of course and make sure you have a proper Vapour mask and enough CFM in your compressor to power a good gun.

My local spray shop are very good and want me to have a go (and sell me more stuff) I've been going there for years and in the past they will mix whatever I want and put it in a spray can for me which gets the job done but not the best
