How to Paint on Window Tintby Lisa East HunterUpdated August 06, 2023
Mix 1 tsp of dishwashing soap with water. Shake the solution to combine. Spray the window with the solution. Scrape the window with a straight-edge razor to remove all residue.
Fill a bucket with hot water. Drop the spray tint can into the water to warm up the contents.
Tape some newspaper around the window to prevent overspray. Cover any portions of the car within 24 inches of the window. Cut the tape with a straight-edge razor to make a sharp line around the window.
Hold the can 12 inches from the window. Spray in a steady back and forth motion and apply a very thin coat of tint. Allow the tint to dry for 20 minutes.
Apply a second and third thin coat of tint, allowing each coat to dry for 20 minutes before applying the next.
- Use the same spray tint to cover headlights and tail lights to create a smoky effect.
