While perusing the latest Home Depot ad circular I noticed a Wagner Power
Painter on sale for $99. Does anyone know if this can be used to spray
glazes, oxides, etc.? It's cheaper than a spray gun and compressor.
Also, I have 2 commissions for public swimming pool art works and am
researching "non-slip tiles and glazes." Besides finding out that colored
porcelain is the contractor's choice for tiles underfoot, I haven't found a
lot of specific information except that there may be more out there. (Thanks
to Tom Colson and Paul Lewing for their advice.) I have enough to move
forward with my project, but the leftover research scientist in me wants to
have ALL of the info that's available. Has anyone added grit to their glazes
and then walked on it for years? :-) Remember: this is for outdoors, around
a swimming pool, fired to C5, and I have checked tile and mosiac web sites
(but if you have the address of one with the info I need, toss that into a
post to me). Thanks in advance.

P.S. My e-mails are arriving on the list DAYS after I send them, so I
apologize for their apparent redundancy.

It's only cheaper if you want to spray glazes for about 3 months and never
again. I went that route. I now have a small compressor which was about
$99 and a bailey's spray gun that ran around $60.00. Never had any problems
with it and I can use the compressor for my car tires, blowing up our air
matress, pumping up the kids recreational balls etc etc etc...

In regards to the Wagner paint gun vrs. the compressor and spray
gun...go with the compressor and the Bailey gun. I just used my Bailey
one quart gun to spray thinned latex paint on my display booth...It
worked as good or better than the Wagner for that, too.
