Spraying a room or a whole house with the appropriate spray painting equipment can provide enormous time saving benefits. In fact, the entire process can be up to three times faster than if using a brush or roller.


Preparation of surfaces (standard room)

  • Remove any grease or dirt by washing down surfaces
  • Fill any imperfections in the plaster work with a recommended filler product
  • Lightly sand any filled areas and imperfections to a smooth, even finish
  • Wipe down surfaces with a soft broom/brush or cloth to remove any dust
  • We recommend you also protect yourself by wearing protective clothing and safety equipment such as, eyewear, gloves and a mask.


  • Use a blue tape to mask up all trim areas including; architraves, skirting boards, window reveals, light fittings, light switches, etc.
  • Cover all floors and furniture with heavy duty Wagner canvas drop cloths
  • It is best to remove any window furnishings, however if this is not possible then cover with lightweight plastic drop sheets or masking film

Spraying (ceiling)

  • Select a premium paint in your chosen colour. Firstly, apply one coat to all cornices
  • Then work systematically from side to side across the width of the room, applying the first coat to the ceiling
  • Allow the first coat to dry thoroughly and then repeat the process with a second coat moving up and down the length of the room

Spraying (walls)

  • After the ceiling is completely dry, mask up underneath the cornice edge using blue tape and masking film or paper and extend to cover the pre-painted ceiling to a minimum of 30cm
  • Working systematically up and down, across the wall, apply the first coat in an even pattern
  • Allow the first coat to dry thoroughly and then repeat the process with a second coat

Removal of masking tape/paper

  • Allow the paint to dry thoroughly before gently removing the masking tape
  • Note – if the paint is still wet when removing the tape then the paint may bleed onto the protected surface
  • Dispose of all tape, paper or plastic thoughtfully
