COLORSHOT comes in a extensive selection of dramatically vibrant colors. A really awesome fact about it is that is has been formulated without Xylene, Benzene, Toluene, and toxic dryers. These chemicals are commonly found in spray paint and can have harmful long-term effects on the user. I always love choosing the safer alternative.
Directions to Make Your Own DIY Little Wood Houses
Before starting this project, be sure to allow plenty of dry time for the paint. While the COLORSHOT has amazing coverage, allow for user error in missing a few spots here and there and possibly needed to add an extra spray coat in places.
Set up your spray painting station. Outside it the best place to spray. Placing a drop cloth or large sheet of cardboard in the grass works great. Once the project is done and cleaned up, the next mowing will clean up the rest for you. However, if spraying indoors or on a deck, start by creating a floor with a cloth or cardboard. Add two sides and a back to finish the station up.
Prime your little wooden houses.
Carefully place your little wooden houses and bottle brush trees to be painted in the station and spray them, one color at a time. (If you need to prime your tiny houses.
Three Spray Paint Tips:
- Paint in Good Weather. Best case scenario, temperatures should be between 50°F and 90°F, and relative humidity is below 85%. Avoid painting in direct sunlight and hot, humid weather.
- Test Spray Paint and Technique Before Starting To get the best application, test the paint on a like surface to your project or maybe the back to make sure it is going to get the desired look.
- Spray Motion Makes a Difference Always begin and finish spraying off the object, using an even side-to-side motion with each pass overlapping your spray pattern by about one-third. Use thin, multiple coats instead of one thick coat.
Allow plenty of dry time. Once the little wooden houses are completely dry, tie ribbon scraps in coordinating colors around the houses.
Use the little wooden houses holiday decor pieces to add to your festivities. They can be used in so many darling ways. I think they would even be fun to add to a tablescape or in place settings.
