TIP 1: It is best to spray several light coats rather than one heavy coat.
TIP 2: Hold the can 12 – 15″ away from the part you are spraying.
TIP 3: How to prevent paint from gumming up.
Shake the can vigorously and be sure to mix well and apply the paint at room temperature.
While spraying, the can should be upright.
If gumming occurs, try spraying the can upside down for a few seconds to clear the nozzle. If it still doesn’t clear, soak the nozzle in thinner or acetone.
After the nozzle is clean, you may also try running the can under warm water for a minute and then shake the can vigorously again.
