Spraying is an efficient way to achieve near-flawless finishing, but beginners can find the techniques and equipment intimidating. This book and DVD set is an excellent introduction for first-time sprayers, breaking the process down topic by topic to provide a comprehensive and straightforward overview of the many options available.
It covers equipment choice, common finishes, lacquers and paints, tips and techniques, maintenance and troubleshooting. Jewitt also discusses safety, using respirators, and choosing appropriate spraying locations, and provides instructions for building spray booths and other helpful fixtures.
Projects and skill-building exercises are illustrated with step-by-step photographs and diagrams. The book provides detailed instructions and reference material, complemented by the DVD, in which Jewitt demonstrates the techniques described.
