  2. Visually divide the ceiling into squares that need to be painted in turn – first along, then across.
  3. In the process of painting, keep the device at a distance of 30-50 cm from the surface, move it at a speed of five seconds per square meter.
  4. The optimal number of layers is three. But you can get by with one, if you apply really high quality. However, this largely depends on the paint.

As you can see, there is nothing complicated in painting the ceiling with a spray gun, the main thing is to adhere to the technology and take precautions – to use a gauze bandage and a respirator. We also recommend that before starting work, free the room from all unnecessary items, cover the furniture with covers or just oilcloth so as not to stain it. The floor can also be protected with foil.

Wear a kerchief or a special hat on your head to protect your hair from getting paint on it.
