    Default Internal paint sprayers

    Howdi all

    I've put up some decorative cornice, with an 'egg and dart' pattern, and I'm figuring it'll be a nightmare painting it with a brush. So a spray gun seems a good idea - but I'm worried about the mist and spray that may blow around and get onto the already painted walls.

    I know there are guns designed for internal jobs, but I dunno if I should trust a label?

    Also, what guns are out there that you would recommend. I'm not made of gold though, my price range is around $100-180.

    Thanks

    I used a HPLV gun to spray our balustrade, and the overspray (mist) was substantial. No matter how hard we tried to cover things, the mist settled everywhere!!

    Wasn't a problem for us as the whole house was being gutted and repainted, and new floors being installed anyway.

    The HPLV gun gives a nice finish though!

    Thats just my 2 cents for what it's worth

    You need a airless spray gun, not one of the toy ones a propper proffesional unit the over spray is substantialy reduced, you can hire them, or buy one for about $3,000 and you will also use les paint however there is nothing that will have zero overspray

    Use a brush. You would be surprised how easy it is to work in.

    Bit late now, but I try to paint as much as of it as possible before it is put up.

    I also have some very ornate cornicing and dream of a spray paint arrangement that will work, be affordable and not make a mess with overspray...to date have used a brush - while it takes a bit of time, at least gets the job done without any other dramas or cost..
