I've never sprayed but I've been contemplating getting one. I see these pictures of 12 in paper while your spraying. Doesn't the slightest draft cause particles to float say tow or three feet onto surrounding substrates. Just looking at it scares me. Lol. Heck latex paint splatters off a brush of roller let alone blowing it in the air. Like I said I only used a sprayer once or twice on a slop job.

Overspray control is a big part of spraying.

I personally wouldn't use paper only for ext windows, or something like that.Its too easy to just plastic them. But I can be done, some painters just shield windows and do fine.

I've done a lot of shielding myself, but its too stressful. One mistake ad you've made a mess.. Easier for me to just mask.

My only experience is doing a warehouse where I had a guy with a sprayer. Some of the spray got on the floor but it swept right off like dust. I would be scared it would stick that deck in seconds.

I did the deck after painting the hand rails and pickets, so it didnt matter on that one. If I wasnt doing the deck I would have to take more precautions.

i have had good luck painting the "pickets" with a paint glove...kinda looks like a car wash mitt...but...it only works if the material you are painting is well sanded and smooth. If not, the glove shreds. We blazed thru iron railings like this...

We tack a runner to the top rail. Drape the runner to the outside first. Spray the inside of the rails. Flip the runner to the inside and spray the outside. When finished, remove the nails and brush the top railing. this way the wind does not effect the plastic and the runner will not blow around. You can spray quickly and not have any problems.
