(Image Link)

When you get serious about making stuff you start to appreciate one trusty friend who's there for you throughout your crafting career- the aerosol can.

Aerosol spray covers quickly and easily, with minimal mess and practically no clean up, and nowadays many different mediums are available in spray cans, from chalkboard paint to water proof sealant.

But the most popular medium is spray paint, which is more convenient to use than brush-on paint, dries evenly and leaves no brush strokes, so your project has a uniform coat and a professional look.
