Spray Paint vs. Upside Down Paint

By Callen Stone

At first glance, a can of Spray Paint and a can of Upside Down Paint look pretty much identical. Both are aerosol cans and both spray paint! The differences lie in how they have used and the tips that sit atop the can.

Spray Paint Can


Upside Down Can

Upside Down Paint is designed for marking gravel, grass, dirt, asphalt, concrete, rock and more. It is ideal for use in a variety of industries including utility location, surveying, excavation, construction, golf courses, landscaping, mining, and HVAC. To make applying the marking paint even easier we provide marking wands.

The difference is in the tip. The need is in the spraying surface. As the saying goes, nobody changes until the pain of staying the same outweighs the pain of change. Apparently, so many lower backs started hurting from bending over and spraying the ground that someone decided to make a change. There are so many occasions our industry needs to mark the ground that a new tip was invented to prevent so much bending over. Now, you can spray paint while standing upright. It doesn’t sound like a huge deal until you’re the person doing the work!

Currently, we stock Rust-Oleum Construction Marking, so check out this Rust-Oleum video where they demonstrate how to use their paint and wand!

Whether you're spraying the ground or a wall, we’d love the opportunity to take care of your spray paint needs.
