If you can get a sprayer with an air compressor you’ll have better luck for high volume but we used Spray cans just as much.
Water down the Latex water based paint until it flows like whole milk for sprayers (learned this from activists in California)
The more expensive spray cans (krylon etc.) cover much better and are easier to use so, if you can get them on sale they are the best. But we normally used the 99 cent discount spray cans if we could find them (especially black). The more expensive Reds were worth it since they were used less, stood out more and covered better than the cheaper brands.
Try buying several kinds and pick a favorite combo. Humidity, temperature and surface have a lot to do with the performance. But keep in mind that 40 feet at 40 miles per hour allows for a lot of ‘slop’ J
Send us videos and we’ll promote the effort.
Oh, here is the best stuff to make the stencils from…
