Aerosol vs spray gun. Which way to go?
I have been using OHW aerosol paint and it seems to work just fine. But I have been toying with the idea of buying a paint gun and switching to that method. But looking and researching the prices of the 2 I can't really see the benifit. If I buy 12 cans of aerosol from OHW they are $12 a can. That's $144 for 144 oz of paint. And that's is the price for any of their colors they offer. Including the standard clear coats which are usually $18 a can. The quart versions are $42 a quart for standard colors. And up to $55 a quart for "exotic" colors. At the stand paint color cost of $42 a quart that's $168 for 128 oz. so it seems to me you get more paint for less money with the aerosols. Plus you can pick any color. If you bought the "exotic" colors by the quart it would be even more expensive. Plus if you add in the cost of the equipment it takes to be able to use a spray gun your costs go way up. The aerosol is ready to use whenever and doesn't require clean up afterward. So can anyone tell me what's the best way to go? What's the benifit of using a spray gun?
