If you’re not already you should be a firm believer in painting objects or revamping your home. There is a range of things you can aerosol spray paint that you may not be aware of. Here we tell you about our top picks!

What exactly can be aerosol spray painted?

Most items can be sprayed with a form of aerosol paint, not all are suited for every item but we are sure you can find a spray paint to suit you. Spray paints come in many different forms from metal, plastic, fabric and even beauty.

Transport

If you have an outdated bicycle you may want to consider giving it a new look. You will most likely need to take it apart to ensure it gets the best finish but you can also jazz it up by painting each part a different colour.

Buses are a great form of public transport but they are also a great way of making a public statement. A range of brands around the world use buses to help increase brand awareness. One of the best ways to do this is by using spray paint! As you can see below 7UP used spray paint to make a statement in London a few years ago. Their main aim was to make people aware that their brand was naturally unique and individual in comparison to its competitors.

Clothes

If you have some old t-shirts lying around why not crack out the spray paint and get your artist flare going. You can create a number of different designs using either freehand or stencils from Globe Painter.

Shoes are also another great item you can paint. They get a lot of wear out of shoes which means over time they can sometimes look tired, you can simply revive them with a little spray paint. If you looking to add a little touch of sparkle and jazz to an outfit rather than buying new clothes why not think about revamping an old pair of trainers or shoes you are not bothered about.

Art

When you normally think of spray paint the first thing likely to come to mind is graffiti. There are many ways you can utilise this type of art, so why not make your office or home look different with a piece of spray paint art.

They are a great way of telling a story but can also make a dull room look significantly more vibrant. You can either make the art yourself of there are a number of artists you can purchase from who create some of the most divine works of art using aerosol paint.

Cars

If you’re looking to revamp a section of your car before you sell it or simply want to change colour there are a number of places on the vehicle you can use spray paint. If you’re looking to spray paint allow wheels we normally recommend using a calliper spray paint to get the best finish.

A lot of modern vehicles now have different sections of cars which different colours, for example, the wing mirrors and rooftop all of which can be achieved using a spray paint.

Curtains

Curtains can be an expensive household item if they need replacing or no longer suit the room you can spray paint them. Using tape to get an accurate finish you can spray them in a number of ways, you can either block spray or look to create a pattern. Fabric spray paint will allow you to get the best colour, we recommend not making them too vibrant so you can keep them for longer meaning they are less likely to become outdated.

Upholstery

Something many people do not know is that upholstery can be spray painted, much like curtains and clothing. Upholstery items such as dining room chairs can instantly become updated with a touch of paint. Over time fabric can become faded especially if in direct sunlight. If you are looking to update the style of the chair to suit the room it is in, a touch of paint will cost you far less than replacing the chair altogether.

Model Trains and toys

If you love making things then why not think about using spray paints to paint the model train or toy you are making. If it is a toy you are using for a young child make sure the spray paint is safe for children before spraying. If you are spray painting an item such as a model train or helicopter, use tape and brushes to help you achieve the best finish. We always recommend spraying each item individually before you put it together this way you can create a more precise and even finish.
