Spraying Christmas Tree With Paint Sprayer

Paint top of branches

We kept the tree bundled at first so that the underside could be easily painted. Cut the netting off the tree and let the branches fall to a natural position, then resume spraying the entire tree turning the tree clockwise as you work.

A white tree really shows off colorful ornaments to their best effect, but Saltwash can be mixed with any color to create a beautiful tree. All of the ornaments were made using Wagner heat guns.
