One can, five ways to spray paint! It’s now easier than ever 

One spray paint can, many uses

Just imagine reviving and reinventing all the tired decor pieces in your home with just one spray paint product. Spray paint makes this process easy and speedy, leaving a perfectly smooth finish – but leaders in the spray space, Rust-Oleum, have found a way to make the humble spray can even better.

Rust-Oleum Custom Spray 5 in 1 features an innovative new nozzle that allows you to choose the spray pattern to suit your project, delivering greater precision and control, and the power to get your project done right.

Spray paint by numbers

Rust-Oleum Custom Spray 5 in 1 gives users unprecedented control through its unique delivery system, which lets you choose between five different spray patterns in one can. Start by assessing your project; are you spraying a smaller item with fine details, or a larger piece that requires more paint and power? Then twist the dial on the nozzle to one of the five settings and spray your way to success.

How to use Rust-Oleum Custom Spray 5 in 1

There are unlimited ways to get your project done right!

1. High output

This is your power setting, releasing a higher volume of paint. Use it to conquer larger pieces, fast – to reinvent furniture or give your skateboard a new look!

2. Standard

This is the traditional spray pattern familiar to regular spray paint users. Start here before playing with the other settings. It’s still the best setting for a wide range of projects, from lamps to vases, flower pots and more.

3. Low output

Spraying a lower volume of paint, this setting offers more precision when painting fine details. Use it for small items or fiddly pieces, like metal railings, an ornamental bird cage or a door knocker. Or switch to ‘low output’ when finishing the edges and finer details of larger projects – it’s great for preventing drips and overspray, giving you a better finish.

4. Vertical fan

Use this spray pattern to get even coverage on wide surfaces. Sweep steadily from side to side to get a professional finish in no time at all! This setting is ideal for larger items like wide shelving or a bench seat.

5. Horizontal fan

This setting gives you the extra height you need to tackle tall items, like doors or large picture frames, in one smooth sweep. Spray up and down for even coverage and a professional finish to be proud of.

What surfaces can you use spray paint on?

Now the only question is what to spray next! For flexibility, spray paint is unbeaten, able to be applied to everything from furniture to doors, light fittings to window frames.

Available in an earthy colour palette – which brings a sense of calm to any space – and with multiple finishes, the new Rust-Oleum Custom Spray 5 in 1 can be applied to timber, metal and most common surfaces, transforming once-dull pieces with a fresh coat of long-lasting colour that’s resistant to chipping, fading and dulling.

Rust-Oleum Custom Spray 5 in 1 goes further, providing the ultimate protective coating for rust prevention, ensuring the longevity and lasting looks of your indoor and outdoor pieces.

When spray-painting, wear eye protection, a mask and gloves and work outside or in a well ventilated area, covering surrounding areas with a drop sheet to avoid overspray.
