What paint shall I use with spray gun?

Post by Tapash » Mon Aug 06, 2018 7:09 am

Hi All
I am doing a DIY project with MDF. I have a simple TACKLIFE spray gun bought from amazon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B06XKMSZPM

So far I have used Leyland MDF Primer with sprayer since it was water based and I thought sprayer can be cleaned easily with water.

Now I am confused selecting what white gloss paint would be suitable for the spray gun, tough & durable after drying and sprayer can be easily cleaned.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks

there are plenty of water-based glosses out there, jonnos aqua for one. the main difficulty will be getting the right viscosity / diluting enough but not too much.
