In the simplest terms, spray painting is the art of adding colors to the painted surfaces. A basic primer allows natural paint pigments to spread on the surface. Some water can get into your paint to “sink” it into the surfaces so that you can create a more realistic look. With that said, when you need to add color to specific areas of your piece, you need to spray or dab it lightly onto your paint. If you’re not sure how to do that, try looking at this video.
What should I use?
When it comes to spray painting paint, there are many great choices. Some of the top selling brands include:
Can I use a mask?
Yes, but please don’t get the “spray paint” mask! It doesn’t work. Even though it does remove any pigment that is in the paint, you’re still creating a permanent paint mask, so if you do spray something onto it like a mask, keep it away from your face for your own safety.
What brands of paint will work with what?
The colors listed above and those which we sell at Black Label, are great choices for making your unique piece.
What about color?
Black Label paints are great for any color that you can think of, plus they’re great at creating a solid color effect on the fabric or paper, making it stand out. They are perfect for a wide variety of paper and cardboard materials and can also be used with vinyl.
What about acrylics?
For acrylic paints, we suggest you start off with something black, like Black Label’s Black & Decker White. It’s a great black color that’s easy to work with and doesn’t fade over time. It will allow you to create a high gloss look to your paintings with no worries of fading. You can also order some other paints, like Waterman’s Orange, that will last longer than Black & Decker White.
Can I use water as a paint medium?
Yes. It’s good for creating a very strong look to your paint, and it’s a great surface for printing or gluing your stencils. Be sure your paint doesn’t have any sort of finish or protection coating. Just about all water based paints work great for this and they generally don’t fade much from the light as long as you aren’t trying to color over everything. Remember, you’re using paint to create a canvas, not a wall.
