Pump spray bottle/can?

Postby EZA on Thu Feb 10, 2011 12:00 am

Hey there i recently found a pump spray bottle that i guess is used for pesticides but i wantedd to see how it can be change ya know like DIY style

This it what it roughly looks like (mine has a bulb at the bottom)

The way it works is you just pump the top end and press the trigger and the fluid inside sprays out but i was wondering can i just maybe put paint (i think i would have to dilute it so it wont clog up the thin nozzle) and like put a few screws in to mix it up and use it as a sort of spray can? what kind of paint?

thanks for the help, suggestions needed

i wouldn't use nail polish remover (acetone) with water based bucket paint. you should try to match the thinner to the type of paint. ie water for water based paints, thinner for oil based paints, reducer for solvent based paint.

since you are just experimenting at this stage you should: goto hardware store and buy can of mismatched paint (it's cheaper), make sure it's water based latex (also cheaper), and then thin it with water (free). start of with maybe like a 3:1 ratio of paint to water, then try to spray. keep adding water and test spraying until you get it working the way you like. keep track of how much water you are adding so that you have a general idea of the final paint/water ratio

Also make sure you flush that nozzle when done,warm water should work well 4 waterbase,
I work with pump sprayers at work and the nozzles are very tempermentle,
they break all the time.I think using anything aside from waterbase would tear them apart
pretty fast.

If your goal is to pull off cleaner, unique-looking tags, I DEF recommend the sprayers with a wand! on top of a wand being easier to make tags with, they have a higher paint capacity, & often include multiple spray options or different nozzle tips (broad spray, stream, etc). My fav wand sprayer is one with a copper nozzle tip with an opening somewhat like a "C", designed for spraying pesticides or nutrients downward & to the sides: after some practice u can get cool angled lettering in your tags!

in the cheap HomeDepot pump sprayers with the green top & no wand, you can easily disassemle the front nozzle & inside there is a small plastic ring with mesh in it that u can take out. similar mesh cap is on the end of the stem that reaches down inside the bottle which pops right off.

(maybe not related to classic graff, but in art classes, these cheap wandless sprayers were great for making semi-blotchy white clouds with long white drips coming down like rain)
