« on: July 02, 2002, 07:12:57 pm »
Which is the best looking painting or spraying?  I want a gloss color. Can you get a gloss color in regular paint?

I would vote for rolling myself.

spray cans can do a good job, but not as easy and expensive.  Nice for filling in cracks.

but if you have a nice flat surface, I like a roller

If your not using mdf then you don't have much of a choice.  It's getting harder and harder to find plywood that isn't pressure treated or coated in some way.  That makes it very difficult to get paint to stick to it.  You technically can go that route but your going to have a very thick coat of paint and I don't know about you, but when I paint things thick I end up makeing a lot of runs.  

I sprayed mine and it actually wasn't that bad.  I used a satin general purpose paint that caost about 1.50 a can.  It took about 6-7 cans to do it.

It also partially depends on the paint.  The paint I used showed rush strokes.  There was a spray paint version.  I rolled the normal pain and and used the spray paint version for touch up.
