When using spray cans and you have multiple patches to spray, I find it useful to use at least 2 cans.

Why? Because the water-base spray can orange peel texture needs to be kept warm.

With multiple patches, the time it takes to spray all of them might be considerable and therefore your

spray can texture may cool off during the spraying process.

If the air temperature is cool, then the cans will need to be kept warm for optimal spraying quality.


Put 2 cans in warm water. When one can cools as you are spraying your patches,

put it back in the warm water and swap it out for the other can. You can keep

this alternating process going until you are done spraying.
