Do you offer helpful hints for using the Sidewalk Paint Sprayer?

We have some tips to help you get the very best results from your Sidewalk Paint Sprayer. Follow the tips below, and if you still have trouble call or email us from our contact us page on Cray​ola​.com! My Sprayer Keeps Clogging: Shake the paint bottle vigorously for 30 to 60 seconds. You should hear the paint become thinner and more fluid. Squeeze paint ONLY through the small opening in the flip top cap. This helps thin the paint and strain clumps. CLEANUP: Rinse cartridge, air tube, and nozzle to prevent dry clumps that can clog sprayer. If the nozzle is removed for cleaning, be sure to replace and screw on until tight. If nozzle is not on tight, it may result in a thinner stream of paint, not the wide mist-like spray shown on packaging. Helpful hints on pressurizing your sprayer: Pump handle 15 to 20 times for effective spray. Screw cartridge on snugly to ensure proper pressurization. Align the small arrow on the cartridge with those on the sprayer for a secure fit. IMPORTANT! Before removing the cartridge, hold the trigger and release any residual air. Remember to pressurize fully. If paint drips when spraying, it needs to be pumped up more. Spray should be mist-like and spray evenly. Spraying Best Practices: Be sure the nozzle is rinsed well with water to ensure that the tiny holes inside the nozzle are clear of paint. Make sure the front orange nozzle is screwed on tight. Spray downward toward the ground to create a continuous spray. Point in the right direction. Cartridge should be facing you. The strap that holds the nozzle onto the sprayer has arrows marking the direction for spraying (facing away from you). De-pressurize fully prior to removing the cartridge by spraying until no air is coming out. Removing without de-pressurising my result in the unit spraying as you unscrew the cartridge. Slowly unscrew the cartridge to release any residual pressure that may be present.

The powdery deposit you may see on the surface of your Crayola product is called bloom. This occurs naturally and is perfectly safe. 

Bloom appears on Crayola wax-based products, such as crayons and coloured pencils. It occurs when oil contained in the paraffin wax used in these products seeps to the surface and re-crystallizes into a milky powder. You may also see this with sculptures made with Crayola Air-Dry Clay as the product ages or is exposed to varying temperatures and humidity. Rest assured, this process is harmless, and the powdery substance and crystallization do not affect the quality or performance of the product. Remove by gently wiping away with a dry cloth. 


If you have additional questions, we want to hear from you! Feel free to send us an email, call, or text us at 18002729652 on weekdays between 9 AM and 4 PM Eastern Time. Text charges may apply.

    • Bend the marker barrel at the star points to crack the glow capsules. 
    • Shake the capped marker for 5 seconds.
    • Remove the cap and hold the marker tip down until it glows.
