rattle can paint through hvlp gun?

Has anyone ever heard of extracting the paint from a rattle can to spray it through a real paint gun? I would imagine that it would work pretty dang good! Then after that you could put a real clear coat over it.

I would just stick with it by the quart, In a spray can you only get about 5 oz of paint, the rest is just propellant . 32 ounces in a quart,that's 6.5 can's of spary paint to make one quart,and you average about $5.00 a can for decent spray paint!!that's enough to buy 3 quart's of rusto or dupont nason or ppg omni by the quart, beside's think of the mess when punturing the can's!!!!

What cac1967 said plus the fact you can't get rusto in quarts anymore.

Well I was thinking about all of the color options you would have.
Not just rusto cans, but any spray paint. They would be more compatible with clear since they aren't oil based and wouldn't bubble the clear.

You're right though you would have to buy a lot of cans Smile
