I went to wal mart, to pharmacy, and they dont have raspirators just like anything else when you realy need it. I had to paint today without the thing. Now i have a strange feeling in lungs and stomach, also my throat hurts :(

Otherwise, I have never had that feeling....

hmm...did you have a window open?? i never use a mask, but i always make sure i'm either in a big room, outside, or have a window open, and usually the only weird feeling i get is SOMETIMES i'll feel a bit dizzy, but that's rare.

That's why you should NEVER EVER spray in your room! :eek: The effects of lacquer solvents on the human body isn't well documented, who knows what kind of problems you could be facing in ten, twenty years down the road.

Dude, a shirt over your nose isnt going to stop you from being exposed from the HARMFUl vapors of spray paints. Do yourself a favor and invest the $25 for one of those filtered masks that you see at Home Depot, the kind with the changeable filter cartridges..some have 2(like mine) but there are some that only have one. You said you went down to the pharmacy to look for a mask..were you looking for those dr's type masks? Those arent protecting you from anything but dust particles really. And about painting in your room I wouldnt do that unless you keep the mask on for a while. It takes a while for the fumes to go away. I know you said you get dust mites stuck to your paint job when you spray anywhere else but trust me, your(definitely mine!) health is more important than some model car, unless 20 years from now you wanna walk around with the shakes and trying to remember where you placed your car keys...

So a good paint finish now is more important than a busted lung later down the road? :rolleyes:

Dust and bubbles can be polished out, your lungs can't.

Don't go cheap on the stuff that you need. Buy a raspirators that can filter fume and fine dust. Get on from hardware store.Those paints are very toxic.

AND spray outdoor. If you can only spray in your room, at least turn on a fan (WITH raspirators on).

Ya i have to agree with everyone else, b/c although i spray indoors i still have a mask that i got from home depot and i spray in my living room so I open my balcony door when i do it so its not that bad.
