Tips and tricks

Spray painting your bike
- Use Montana Gold or Molotow Premium. Apply your color of choice and then apply a few coats of varnish for best result and durability. Choose between matte or glossy finish but remember to use paint and varnish in the same brand. For example, use a Montana Gold S9100 Shock White and coat with Montana Tech T1000 Gloss varnish.

Start off by sanding down the existing top coat a bit and then clean the surface with an appropriate solvent. When the surface is dry spray a layer of Montanas Metal Primer in order to get the paint to attach to the surface. Let dry a few hours, preferably 24 hours. Then apply the paint, and you'd rather go with several thin layers instead of one thick layer. Again, let dry for a few hours, preferably 24 hours before applying the varnish. Lastly, let the varnish harden for 24 hours before you use your bike.

Consumption: About one can each of 400ml spray paint and varnish.

If you experience splashes or if the nozzle overflows with paint, check that the cap is not clogged and that you keep an adequate distance to the object. Change to a new cap if it gets clogged. Also remember to hold the spraycan in an upright position when spraying and shake the can every now and then during your painting session. 

Spray painting furniture
- Preferably use Montana Gold or Molotow Premium. Apply your color of choice and then apply a few coats of varnish for best result and durability. Choose between matte or glossy finish but remember to use paint and varnish in the same brand. For example, use a Montana Gold S9100 Shock White and coat with Montana Tech T1000 Gloss varnish.

Start off by sanding down the surface a bit and clean it with an appropriate solvent, then prime with one of Montana Tech Primers (if needed). Then apply the paint, and you'd rather go with several thin layers instead of one thick layer. Some materials, like untreated tree might need a few layers. Let dry for a few hours, preferably 24 hours before applying the varnish. Let the varnish harden for 24 hours before you using the furniture.

Consumption: A can of 400ml will cover about 1,5 square meters. You would need about one can each of 400ml spray paint and varnish to paint a carver chair for example. The consumption also depends on the condition of the surface you are painting, is it untreated or not for example?

If you experience splashes or if the nozzle overflows with paint, check that the cap is not clogged and that you keep an adequate distance to the object. Change to a new cap if it gets clogged. Also remember to hold the spraycan in an upright position when spraying and shake the can every now and then during your painting session. 

Spray painting on plastic objects
- There's a lot of different plastic materials and therefor hard to guarantee a perfect result, especially polyurethanes and PVC's has a surface which could cause the paint to peel. We always recommend Montana Plastic Primer, (see product for more specifications on plastic types) a transparent primer especially developed for plastic surfaces.

Spray painting on metal objects
- Like plastic materials, there is a lot of different metals and some of them are hard to get the paint to attach to. Especially fat, untreated metals like aluminum or stainless steel. In such cases we most often recommend the Montana Metal Primer, a spray primer especially developed to get paint to stick to metal surfaces withous peeling.

Spray painting polystyrene and styrofoam objects
- As you may have experienced, polystyrene and styrofoam melts when applying a solvent-based paint. Use the Montana Styrofoam/Polystyrene primer, which serve as a protecting layer between the material and the paint. You will not need the primer when using a water-based paint.

Spray painting wooden objects
- There is usually no problem when painting tree. There's a few cases when applying a primer could be a good idea. Since spray paint is a thin paint, leaky and/or some untreated tree-materials will absorb the paint. In those situations a good idea would be to apply a base coat with a thicker paint.

Montana Universal primer is a perfect product if you are not sure that the paint will cover or attach to your surface, or if you simply just want a white base coat before applying your color of choice!
