I decided to go with spray paint for painting my shop cart and it hasn’t been very good. Two can’s worth just to get a single coat of primer, then 2 cans for a single coat of paint. I think I got more of it blown back at me than what is actually on the peice.

I don’t really have any experience with HVLP systems but how are they compaired to canned spray equivilants? Is there something better I can do about the bounce back from spray paint? or about how many cans it takes just to apply the paint to paint my object.

This may be the wrong place to ask this, I can post on the forums if I don’t get any response or if that would be better.

The finish on my peice isn’t very good, mostly because I ran out of spray paint .. and the amount of mess it made, doesn’t really make me want to buy more.
