Craig Phillips – How to Spray Paint Walls and Ceilings different colours


WAGNER make a number of different
electric paint sprayers you can use to paint your walls. I’m gonna use the FLEXiO
Universal handheld version. It comes with two reservoirs, it allows
you to do all the painting indoors and outdoors, any paints, any color, any brand. The large reservoir is for doing the walls and ceilings, emulsion paint and you can even use smooth masonry paint for outside. The small reservoir is for your woodwork and your metalwork. You can use gloss, undercoat, primer,
eggshell, satin, wood preservatives, lacquers and even metal paints. I’m also going to be using the extension handle. This simply clips to the units itself
and any of your attachments and it gives me an extra 600 millimeter reach so I can get to the ceilings keeping my feet firmly on the floor. I’m going to be painting the ceiling and walls two different colors but I don’t have to worry about cutting in at the moment. I’m simply going to spray the ceiling white,
let it dry, then mask up the ceiling and spray the walls blue. But of course when doing any spraying,
don’t forget your mask and your safety specs. Now the white paint is on the ceiling and the wall behind me is dry and ready to paint this wall blue. But of course I want a perfect straight line between
the blue wall and the white likewise with the ceiling. So this was really easy to achieve when you use your masking kit. I’m going to start off in the bottom corner, sticking it to the wall on the white side – which is dry –
all the way up to the top and across the ceiling. Then I can simply spray my area blue, not worry about any overspray going onto the white bit. Then of course, once it’s dry, I could remove that out of way. That is going to get you a perfect straight line between the two colors and save you hours and hours of cutting in with a paintbrush. Now I’m sure all of you who’ve had the
experience on painting walls with a roller, you know how physically harder is
and also time-consuming when you have to do two or three coats
waiting for drying times in between coats. That is the past!
Spray paint technology is the way forward. It’s a lot quicker and easier but there is a couple of factors that you must consider. When you’re spraying the wall keep the nib away from the surface. You also want to keep it moving at all times at a consistent pace. When I’m spraying up and down
I like to pass over 50% out of time. So you kind of getting two coats of paint
when you’re going up and down. Once you’ve done one wall turn the nozzle
and then go from side to side. That way you’re getting 2 solid coats – up and down and left to right – which is going to give you a true professional finish in a fraction of the time.

  1. Is there a trick for using a masking tape or this one is a special one as when I use mine, the paint is coming off together with tape

  2. By the time you have masked everything and then covered the carpets with dust sheets plus the cost of the covering materials Iā€™d have painted the room šŸ™„

  3. Anyone know if that extension handle? Is that an official Wagner product? I can't find it on the Wagner website and it looks like it would come in handy for my 9' ceiling project. Also, does it fit the flexion 3000 sprayer?

  4. For all you people cheering it up for this freaking spray paint machine, tell me how you do the ceiling because we have been trying to do ours and it doesn't work worth S*&^t . Keeps clogging even with watering down the paint. Worst $ I ever spent!

  5. I noticed he has a pretty steep angle when painting the ceiling. I had an issue with back flow by getting to steep, what is the exact cutoff for when this is "safe"? Thanks

  6. I've been painting professionally for 32 years!!! I would out perform that thing with my brush and roller guaranteed!!!!

  7. Notice how they start the music every time he starts spraying so you can't hear how noisy this thing is. Bit misleading really as the video gives the impression it's virtually silent but it really isn't. Sounds like a loud hairdryer.

    Also, I wouldn't recommend using this indoors. Try using it for a minute, turn the lights off in the room and then shine a torch around ā€” there's spray mist in the air everywhere! Can't be good for your health, especially in such a small room with no ventilation, and such an inadequate mask. At 5:10 you can see the room looks very misty with blue paint.

  8. Dont waste ya money on this crap. How do you fix the edge where the tape pulls off the paint on the opposite wall an ceilings? Its just a shit gimmick

  9. Do I need to add water to thin the emulsion or
    Can I apply direct to the reservoir? What about base coat plaster paint? Does water need to be added also? Cheers

  10. Why waste time cutting in, 'when you can waste time masking and covering all the edges, ceilings, windows, doors, floors, walls? Then just spray your granny when she walks in with a cuppa for you!!

  11. I'm looking to paint a indoor room with Matt Emulsion paint, do I have to dilute in the sprayer? If so by how much?

  12. Bought a Wagner electric, looked different than this one, in early 2000s. Was terrible. Needed to spray concrete. Had to thin paint so much and still clogged repeatedly. Horrible experience. This one seems to have a constant spray. I couldn't hear and sounds. All that time masking and the costs, I think the traditional way is still better. Just saying

  13. I have the Flexio 590, it is ok for outside fence and deck, but not inside fine detail. It spits small droplets and there is nothing that you can do to prevent this. Not enough thinning of material, it just hasn't the airpower to make a fine mist. I also tried a Graco Truecoat 360 VSP, its problem is that you can't control amount of material. It puts on the same amount of material all the time, if you turn down the pump, you have to slow down the arm movement otherwise tiger striping. Go with the airless pumps with a hose, the hose keeps the pressure constant, and you can change tips to give you the desired application. DIY systems can be had for less money than a hand held airless or HVLP system.
