Spray stain in corners1/14/17
When spraying my doors with the spray no wipe stain I get a very small ghost line in the corners, is there a remedy for this , it's very very small , no matter my settings technique etc. Is this typical or can you do something to help this problem. Does anybody else experience this?
Seems very typical. I've seen the air trap issue on inside corners and carvings on furniture often.
Sometimes, we 'stutter' in the corners first with low air and fluid before staining as usual.
Stutter: fan in line with corner. Aim at corner at 45 degrees. One barely brief trigger pull. Move 1/2 fan width, pull again. Etc till at the end of corner. Pff, pff, pff, pff until the end. Low air, low fluid. No blast, no flood.
Auto guy showed me. Hard to get perfect, but IMO better than white corners. Also why I rarely employ spray only staining.
That's why so many of the cheaper store bought cabinets have glazing. They spray stain and then hide the sins of the white inside corners with glaze.
Ryan, What type of gun and settings have you found to work best? Also, if you want to tell us who's Spray no wipe stain do you use? Some work much better than others that is why I ask.
Reduce the stain color and make more passes is the answer.... lower atomizing air can help too
I am spraying stain with a fuji mini mite, 1.0 cap, hvlp. sprayed sherwinn williams, which is ok if you want that painted look, no grain. They can't seem to figure out the dilution to let the grain come through, so ill take sherwood wiping stain, cut with naphtha, then spray, I am going to try amazing stain ml cambell next, I just like seeing the grain a little, has anybody used this? I also thought couldn't I just get glazing to match the stain color, and run a small bead around the inside edge, but Leo gave the impression this looks cheap and i by no means would want to give this impression, but with a very small bead wouldn't this solve the problem, and look ok. When I thin the stain with naphtha I think it looks great, and its fast, I could live with the small ghost line if thats the case, but id rather not, I'm afraid if it would shrink there would be a bigger line.thoughts?
I to am struggling with spray stain and panel shrinkage, its the main reason I dont do it, as I have had a couple jobs shrink up in the first heating season. For any one using spray stain,have you tried to spray stain,seal coat and then go back and brush or blow stain back into panel groove and then top coat ?
I spray the edge of the panel before the door is assembled. Seems to help the shrink issue. Also do the same for painted doors, primer and sand the panel before assembly.
I turn my pressure down really low and spray a slow saturating drizzle. It's almost like a slow rain instead of a spray. Works for me, even at that it took me a while to get fairly good at it.
