Take care of your skin Getting spray paint on your skin is a bad idea because the solvents in the paint get into your body. The paint is also quite hard to get off. If possible use latex gloves. If you cant do that, use a product called “gloves in a bottle” before painting. It will reduce exposure. When you are done, you can remove the paint by softening it in warm water. Hair conditioner can help do this! Then use a scrubbing sponge to wash it off once the paint is softened. Using more thinner to remove the paint is bad for your health.
To put a leash on this destructive force of art, I got to be bought a drawing set; a book, color pencils and crayons, too much color and media for one tiny creature! Of course some of the crayons got to be nibbled at in the course of servicing art for children! Either way this was a significant first contact with standard art material. My sets and I got married for a long time to come even when I got to know of oil paints much later at about age ten. It is the media that changed but not the enthusiasm.
Prepare your space. Cover anything that can be damaged with dust cloths. Test fans to make sure that they will remove dust from the room. You can use a stick of incense to simulate the vapor. Open all doors and windows. If you can paint the object outdoors, set up out side! Shake all your cans and make sure you have some way of knowing what colors they are so you dont make a mistake. Find a way to place the object you want to paint at a convenient level. Consider a table or box to support it. If you have a turntable, that can be useful to reach all parts of the object.
