New Toy!

3603 31
And to think all these years I've been painting with brushes!

Just picked up a fantastic new toy! A Kobalt Latex Spray Gun. You need a compressor (of course) but it's a fantastic tool. I am able to spray large projects in 10 minutes -- much better than the hour or so of hand brushing I was doing just last week. It's a great spray gun because it's specifically designed for Latex paints. No need for thinners or anything, just put your paint in the can and go for it.

I was able to spray the inside and outside of my mausoleum, plus the three side panels of my cider shack in about half an hour. It was great!

And with the speed of switching paint colors, I think it will make aging the mausoleum very fun.

I picked up this Latex Spray Gun at Lowes yesterday for $50. Well worth it.

In a way I would agree with you. I am at a little bit of an advantage because of what I do for a living. But, I know for a fact I would be a lot further along if I spent some money on this stuff. I even changed my theme so that I could work it into my free stuff. The pieces that you have knocked out in such a short amount of time have me lagging way behind. Maybe I will just come over and check out your stuff on Halloween and call it good. :)

Did you get any pics of your painting before you had to buff out the mini van?
