spray shields


I have a quick question....how do you use spray shields with an airless paint sprayer? I know the basics; hold up in one hand and spray with the other. In particular:

- Do you have to still mask the area behind the shield? Put plastic down?
- Do you have to wipe the shield right after you use it? What do you use to wipe it? Water, dry towel?

Thanks in advanced...

spray shields

I've used one, occasionally. You don't have to mask behind it but don't expect to get a finished straight edge using one. We usually go behind and cut in.

I carry a 5 gal bucket of water with a rag and wipe it down when it gets too wet, usually after 2 sets.
