When using an airless sprayer with Thinners, one has to be extremely careful with leaks.
If you have an airless sprayer leaking, use a selfgard glove over the inlet filter. Have a look at them here – https://www.tradextra.co.nz/product/selfgard-vinyl-lowpowder-gloves/. The thicker material retains the fluid well.
A plastic bag can work for acrylics but with thinners, the fluid dissolves through the plastic quickly.
Maintenance on your sprayer is very important as this helps extend the lifetime of it.
