All picks and ideas would be appreciated. Im sick of spraying paint all over the place :)

I've got a couple of really deep IKEA bookshelves in my hobby room and I'm using one plane as a spray booth. I've stapled black plastic all arount the inside and added a small "lip" on the outside to catch rebounding paint spray. I've also added a light to the top.

The whole thing is only about 3ft by 3ft by 2ft but it works for general model work (airbrushing). If I need to used spray cans with toxic fumes I seal the whole thing with see-through plastic (ceran wrap works) and cut a hole for my arm. I think the largest prop I've used it for is my Pulse Rifle.

How about a pic of the PR?

My spray booth is a large cardboard box with a hole in the back where I attach my shop vac to suck up the air.

"Are you drunk, sir?"
"No officer..."

Mic booth is a little big for me. Im looking at something like 12rouges has in his picture... What did you use for the extractor vent and motor?



Sr Member
I used a common bathroom vent fan with some filter material normally used in air purifiers.

I don't claim that shooting flamable materials through a common bathroom fan is safe. Flamable materials can be ignited by an unshielded electric motor. I suggest you practice safety in your work area, and purchase a vent fan made specificly for venting paint fumes.

I usually spray acrylic paints in my booth (which still isn't 100% safe) but so far I still have all my fingers and toes, face, eyes and the rest of my original factory installed equipment....

You may look at McMaster Carr for a good explosion proof fan McMaster Carr or Grainger.

Good luck,

I decided to go the top-of-the-line high tech approach.



Now I don't want to sound like a know-it-all, but I think you're supposed to take it out of the box before you use it.
:p ;)
