Preval Disposable Spray Gun


Tried this product out. I thought to myself, self, I wonder if I could spray a 12 foot piece of base with this?

No cleaning the paint gun! Only cost $8 at the Orange box store, spray and pray.

Didn't work: thinned paint (pro crylic from Hirschfields, shot at base, annnnd it loked like mini knock down texture. Not good.

Anybody else try this thing? I want it to work.

I've used it a few times in the past. Just on small stuff, bought initially to spray some dental details on a mantle, and have used it to spray outlet cover plates and other small stuff. Worked fine for me, can't remember if I thinned the paint or how much.

Tried em years ago. Think I've still got a few in a drawer somewhere. Didn't do well for me.

Not gonna spray latex with it. It does well with lacquer and other thin finishes.

Makes sense, must have to be very thin. They do stock them by the stains and finishes.

I think my mom uses them for Christmas wreathes and other womanly crafts.

No I don't think so. I think it was for things like making wreathes and sea shell picture frames.

Those became available when oil base was still used on a daily basis and they sucked then too.
