I get asked all the time if Plaster Paint can be sprayed through a paint sprayer aannnnndddd the answer is YES! Here are a few projects that we've done using PP and our trusty HomeRight Finish Max sprayer.
Sorry about the picture quality -- camera on phone is no bueno! This round table was painted with Plaster Paint in Paris then we hand painted this round typography on top. This project was literally done in an evening. The base coat, distressing, glazing then the typography and finally sealed with liquid wax all in about 5 hours! No way would I have gotten it done in one night with a trusty chip brush!
You can read about this gentlemen's chest makeover here. This piece has sold.
We painted this entire armoire with Plaster Paint in Black Tie with our sprayer and was done in an hour! You can see the full transformation here.
Eddie built this from an image he had in his head, in a weekend I might add -- I'll never get tired of singing his praises! Again, super quick paint job with Plaster Paint and our HVLP sprayer. Read more about this project here.
We've done many more projects with our sprayer and LOVE IT! Obviously, we don't use it on small projects but for the large ones -- it's totally worth it!
We do mix our paint with a thinner because we feel that the overall finished look is smoother and it makes our paint go further. However, we've heard from others who don't dilute their paint at all and they don't seem to have any trouble. To dilute or not to dilute...it's a personal preference!
We are in the process of updating our Plaster Paint page so in the meantime if you have any questions or would like to order, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
