• Before you spray paint your fence, tie back and cover your garden, remove any bikes or cars, brush away any dirt and lay down a drop cloth.
• Use a brush to remove imperfections on older fences and a de-mossing solution to combat mould.
• If using Weathershield, dilute with up to 10% water.
• Stir your paint.
• Unscrew the container from the spray gun and pour in the paint.
• For the vertical pickets, turn the nozzle to the horizontal setting. Use the circular jet for corners, edges and hard-to-reach surfaces.
• Point the spray gun directly ahead and start spraying from one side, working along the fence in long vertical strokes. Release your finger from the trigger when you get to the top and bottom to prevent too much paint forming in one area and dripping.
• To protect the garden from overspray, hold up a piece of cardboard behind the top of the surface.
• 2–3 coats may be required depending on your surface.
