  1. Thanks for giving the step by step! I am considering getting a sprayer for some projects I have coming up, but I am still concerned about the process between coats. Most of what I will be doing requires 2 coats of primer, and 2-3 coats of enamel with a 16 hour recoat time. My plan is to do a coat each night after putting the kids to bed. Typically I wrap my rollers & brushes and put them in the refrigerator over night. Would I need to fully clean the sprayer every night, or just the spray nozel between coats?

    1. I put it in the fridge! You’ll just need to clean the nozzle off before painting again.

    My question is about the paint viscosity I have a Zahn now paint cup.
    Could you please inform me to the exact viscosity which best to use in the wagna paint sprayer and to the exact timing of how long it takes for the paint to travel through.

  3. Thanks for this article, we just got a Wagner 590 and we’re stuck on a few points but you cleared it up for us.

  4. Do you find that when spaying something like a door that it’s better to spray it laying flat or standing up? Feels like flat would reduce drip/runs risk. But not sure if it negatively impacts finish.

    1. I like to spray flat whenever possible! Just be sure to give it plenty of time to cure before flipping it
