Basic rules

MOTIP DUPLI spray paints are always ready to use. You don't need thinners, cleaner, paintbrush or stirrer to achieve a perfect finish.

This is how it's done:

1. Bring up to room temperature

The can must not be too cold. 20°C is ideal.

2. Shake

Shake the can vigorously for about 2 minutes until the mixer ball can be clearly heard in the can. This is very important to ensure that the coloured pigments is well stirred and mixed in. This is the only way to obtain the right paint colour.

3. Getting ready

If possible spray outdoors, or in a well ventilated room (cellar, workshop or garage). Indoors you must cover the surrounding area well to protect it from the fine misting of spray paint. Mask any areas not to be painted. Good illumination is also important, to let you see whether you have painted over the whole area.

4. Spraying

Never spray straight away onto the object to be painted. Spray first onto a test piece e.g. a newspaper or masking material. Be sure to spray from the correct distance of 25 - 30 cm. Different objects call for different spray techniques. Start spraying close to the object but not directly onto it. Press the actuator button down fully. Move the can slowly and evenly back and forth, changing direction only after the spray has moved past the object. This makes it easier to control the amount of paint falling onto the object and lets you ensure that too much paint does not build up, forming runs or "tear drops".

Don't try to get a perfectly smooth surface at the first pass. The first pass should be regarded as a preparatory coat on which you will build a smooth even finish with the second and perhaps third passes, spraying before the previous coat is fully dry, but with 1 or 2 minutes between each pass. Further coats can then only be applied after 24 hours, otherwise there is the risk of lifting.

If you pay attension to the full instructions and any special advice on the can lable nothing can really go wrong.
