    A Question regarding spray/latex paints

    Discussion started by sillysiphilis - Feb 6, 2005

    Im going to be doing a large scale non-graffiti mural some time in the near future and am curious if any of you guys know of a spraypaint color that almost perfectly matches a latex paint color. I'm hoping for brown or beige, but I can be pretty indiscriminate w/ color. I also don't really care whether the paint is Krylon or Montana.
    I just need a flat background color that is workable/fixable without bringing out the freakin roller.
    Thanks,
    Sillysiphilis

    i think this is the wrong forum for such a question.. but youre never going to get the same color from a can that you do from a bucket of paint.. your best bet.. which albeit is a pain.. is to paint with a roller and a grip of foam brushes... i think foam brushes are the saving grace to really nice even touch ups.

    take alittle bit of the bucket paint and roll it on the wall. wait for it to dry. take acouple different cans that have a similar tone and spray them on there. wait for them to dry.


    oh yes my friend.

    you probably know this, but latex is just for indoor painting. I'm sure after it dries, you can use spraypaint on it. But i'd imagine that an oil based background would bond better with the spraypaint

    yes interior bucket paint you can paint on but sometimes has a tendancy to run of the wall. like if its humid or just rained youll have large straks in the paint and the paint will actually bleed over whatever you spray paint

    i dont know if this is always true but ive had it happen to me more than once.

    no not even a flat black.. as far as i know.. its never going to match..exactly..but you may get lucky and get close.

    also.. he is asking if there are a wide variety of aerosol laytex paints.. i've used aerosol laytex paint before..its ca ca.. and there are very few colors.

    what you can always do is select a color of spray paint that you want to work with then take that can to a lowes, home depot, or any other place that mixes custom colors of paint. They will sample some of the paint as a swatch and custom mix a bucket color to that. Keep in mind that for a 5 gallon bucket of this it will be a bit pricey unless you know someone that can mark it as a mis tint for you.
