I don't have a proper respirator: just a mask
I spray synthetic, cellulose and 2-pack but I only do it outside with any wind behind me.
This means having to wait for the right weather conditions ....

I am sure folks will tell me that it's still not "safe" but for the, perhaps, 10 hours a year I spray then I think I am probably ok.

Went with the 2Pac. Been very humid, had to wait for the weather, I need to learn how to minimise orange peel when spraying, otherwise happy. It was a lot of work to flatten. Didn't put enough paint on the firs time, and rubbed through to the primer and had to top coat again. For a first time painter I am pleased. I am a lazy polisher, so end result could be shinier. Boy's brace is ok for now, time will tell. As we say around here "good enough for the bush".
