FAQs about Questions about Spray Paint
What surfaces is spray paint good for?
Spray paint can be used on a multitude of surfaces - all the way from arts and crafts to architectural design. If you can name it, you can probably spray paint it given the correct preparation measures!
Do I need a primer for my spray paint?
If the surface is lacking a prime coat, go over every segment thoroughly with a primer spray paint. Generally, primers are used to smooth out a surface, some are designed to fill pockmarks and scratches in a material. Primers can also be sanded down to work out any remaining rigid areas if necessary.
Can you make custom color spray cans by pantone color?
Yes. MyPerfectColor offers 14,285 different Pantone colors in spray paint. Visit any Pantone color page on MyPerfectColor to see the available options and pricing.
Can I use Spray Paint on plastics?
Yes. MyPerfectColor’s Hedrix brand spray paint will adhere well to most surfaces, including plastics, primed/painted wood, metals, and powder-coatings. Use a tack cloth prior to painting to ensure the surface is clear of dust.
Do you provide paint in cans so I can use my own sprayer?
Most, if not all, of the paint types we offer, can be used in a sprayer. Once you place an order with MyPerfectColor, you will receive an email with technical information about the product and instructions on how to use the paint. Normally this includes information about spraying and other application tips.
Can I buy just one can of spray paint?
We do not have minimum quantity with our orders. However, please note that a standard-sized spray can will cover about 20 square feet per coat, but this depends on how thickly the paint is applied and the amount of overspray. It doesn't hurt to have an extra can or two to ensure you enough paint on hand to complete your project. You can always get more, but it will interrupt your project and there may be slight variation in color due to batch differences.
Is spray paint good on metal?
Yes. MyPerfectColor uses an acrylic enamel which is a very quality coating that sticks well to most surfaces including metal, plastics, powder-coatings, cabinet, and primed or previously painted wood.
Is spray paint okay to use outside?
