Spraying Rustoleum Hammered paint?

Anyone done it?

I'm getting ready to paint a trailer frame and am looking to purchase a spray gun. I use Rustoleum's Hammered paints in rattle cans for just about everything and love the finish and durability. Any tips for selecting a spray gun or for spraying the stuff? How does the finish compare to rattle cans?

Thanks

I would use a foam brush. I have also heard about rolling it ,so I decided to try it when I painted my cherry picker. I didnt like the outcome with the roller, it had a texture but it was all one color and didnt have any of the black in the low spots. The foam brush works well and looks good.
I would worry that reducing it to spray and then spraying would net the same results I had with the roller ,one color and just a bit of texture

Use no reducer and a bigger tip/nozzle it will spray fine.

I didn't use hammered, but did use rustoleum satin black on my M725 the last time it was painted. Used an HVLP gun and just thinned it to nearly 50% IIRC. Sprayed and turned out reasonably well.

There's a few parts shinier than other's because I wasn't as consistent with the thinning as I should have been, and shot them at different times with drastically different shop temps. Overal it turned out decent.

I'd think the stuff in the rustoleam cans (non-spray) that are meant for brushing are a hair thick to shoot even with a different tip, but I didn't try either.

Finish: about the same as the cans.. But like 300x easier and faster to do a bigger area.

spraying a the satin black or the pro black isnt a problem, you can reduce it with acetone and spray it. I have sprayed that stuff a ton,but the hammered is super thick and think the hammered look will change with thinning. For a trailer I say brush or roll it and be easy to touch up later.

I did it with Hammerite - just thinned it with Xylene and shot it. It was not an HVLP gun, just a conventional spray gun - same one I used to shoot other automotive paints.

I used a conventional gun as well, the same old junk gun I use to spray med/high build primer. Not sure on the tip size but it layed down in one coat and still had the hammered look.

I've used a roller with the Hammerite paint and it comes out nicely. Can you get the Rustoleum Hammered in cans? I've only seen it in spray cans.

Sounds good, I'll have to give it a shot! No put intended.

Thin with Xylene only (read the can), and use any type of sprayer you want. It goes on just fine. I did my axles that way.

Xylene is hard to get in some areas. I know I can't find it around here so I use acetone and it works fine.

Xylene is available everywhere around here, so I'll just use what is recommended.
