Re: Spraying Plasti Dip


The question about it being shiny or dull is complicated.

It depends on how you spray it. You can mist it on and make a 'flocked' look to whatever you are spraying.
Spraying it on a little heavier and it becomes a semi-flat semi-gloss look that gives the appearance of a semi-gloss paint.

When you really put it on heavy it becomes glossy at the expense of flexiability.

Practice makes perfect. If you ever used spray paint you will know what to do. If not buy an extra can and practice on anything or find a friend who is "handy" like a painter or carpenter and have them show you. The technique is getting a good flow with the arm and hand.

Re: Spraying Plasti Dip


I bought some this morning and have been applying coats to a piece of MDF. I now see that it would not make for a good molding material. I pictured it being much thicker. I suppose it could be used together with the brush-on (pour-on?) for that. I don't know that you'd want to but it was just a thought.

Of course the brush on is thicker. Think of plasti-dip being paint and compare a spray can to a brush on can of paint. No comparison to the thickness of different products.
