Can you spray over old paint?

Yes, you can spray over old paint, but proper surface preparation is crucial for achieving a smooth and durable finish. Begin by thoroughly cleaning the old paint surface to remove any dirt, grease, or dust. Lightly sand the surface to create a slightly rough texture, which helps the new paint adhere better. If the old paint is peeling or chipping, it should be removed or sanded down to create a stable base. Applying a primer is highly recommended, especially if the old paint is a different color or if the surface has been sanded down to bare material. The primer will help the new paint adhere and ensure an even finish. Once the primer is dry, you can proceed with spraying the new paint. Use thin, even coats and allow each coat to dry completely before applying the next. This method ensures a professional-looking finish and extends the life of the new paint job.
