    This may be common knowledge to many of you, but I just wanted to share one of my favorite tools I use for DIY around here…

    Did you hear angels singing or was it just me?

    This is one of the cheapest and best DIY tools you will ever own. Seriously! I bought the Krylon Snap and Spray tool on a whim, and it has totally changed my opinion of spray paint! Now, I’m not brand loyal here, I think any snap-on plastic handle would do the trick. I’ve seen a few different makes and models. I just happen to have this one and really like it. It was cheap and works fantastic… two very important criteria in any Magpie DIY!

    Why do you want this?

    Well, for one, you won’t end up with a sore index finger. Second, you won’t have paint all over your hands when you are done. And, lastly, {Wait for it! Wait for it!} your paint will cover more evenly. I swear! I don’t know if that last one is a fact, but in my many hours of spray paint research and discovery, I have totally found that to be true. I can absolutely tell a difference. I’m sure there are other reasons, but those are my top three. So there.

    You can get this little plastic wonder at any hardware store, big-box store, and even on Amazon and eBay for pretty cheap. But, if you were thrifty, which I know you are, you’d go to Michael’s, JoAnn’s, or Hobby Lobby and buy it using your 40% off coupon. Just saying.

    Trust me on this one. You will LOVE this tool.

    Happy painting!

    Plasma Coatings , can provide thick coatings (approx. thickness range is 20 micrometers to several mm, depending on the process and feedstock), over a large area at high deposition rate as compared to other coating processes such as electroplating, physical and chemical vapor deposition.
