Hi!! I'm new here so I hope this is the right place to post this. I have a wooden high chair I'm spray painting with a gloss color. I have a few questions.

1. Do I have to sand between each coat? Will it be fine if I don't?

2. Is there a way to fix it if a small speck of something or a tiny bug gets on the wet spray paint, or if I make a tiny smudge? How do you keep from stuff sticking to your work if you are spraying outside??

3. I originally chose a yellow gloss. I did just the tray today (sand, prime, paint). I don't like the yellow and want to do red, what I originally wanted. Can I just sand the yellow and spray over it?

Thanks so much!!

I spray painted a crib last summer. I only did one sand to begin with. And then I just coated it with paint, then did a gloss finish. I think you'd be just fine to paint over the yellow! As for the getting stuff on it while outside, I can't help you there, a dandelion blew right on it and I had to sand that part and start over! Good luck, post pics when it's complete! Wink

I am an avid spray painter. I spray paint EVERYTHING! I only do this because I have found THE best spray paint.

I only use Krylon Paint+Primer. Its the one with the twisty cap. It works on everything. I had enormous suitcase that was a bright yucky orange and lime green. I bought three cans thinking that I would need to go back for more. With one can I spray painted the entire huge suitcase, my surround sound speakers and three embroidery hoops.

I would only recommend that spray paint. It would cover over your yellow no problem.

I don't usually sand unless it is a high gloss orginally underneath. I never sand between coats. High gloss really doesn't hold paint well. I REALLY hate sanding so what I do is use this product called Klean-Strip Degloss and Sander. It costs $7 and goes really far. It goes on like Modge Podge. That is out of sheer laziness though.

If I get something in it when I am painting. I use a small foam brush to pull it out. I brush the paint as even as I can (sometimes it comes off) and then spray over it.

I spray paint chairs before I do the detail acrylic painting on them.  I do use a high gloss which I love but hate when it puddles.  I will have to sand if I get heavy handed with the spray paint and get a puddle or drip.   If I don't like the color, I just go over it with another but I do agree with the primer all in one.

Ah bugs!!!
I solved this problem! I went to walmart and bought a big ole rubbermaid tub. I spray paint my project then drop the tub over the top. I drilled holes in it, so theres airflow. It may take a bit longer to dry but theres never a bug!
