All surfaces must be perfectly clean at the moment of applying liquid painting. Due to this, pieces have to pass through some process such as Sandblasting, that uses a special tool for blasting a pressurized abrasive material in a controlled manner, or Solvents application, that help to prepare surfaces by giving more adherence for painting.
