Remember to move air through your faux paint booth. Use filtration to avoid messing up your paint job and an intrinsically safe fan to keep from blowing up. Read the material safety data sheet for respiratory protection information. Do not use a cheap paper mask. They don't protect you from anything besides big drops of paint. Do not set up your paint booth near a water heater or other ignition source.

Last year, a neighbor was using a type of spray paint in a utility room off of his garage. The water heater ignited the vapors from the paint. The neighbor received 3rd degree burns. His garage was badly damaged, and several windows in the house were blown out.

Been there, done that. +1 on all of Steve's great advice. Don't overlook eye protection - some disposable goggles is a must. Get a paper overall from somewhere such as Harbor Freight - with care you can use it a few times.

This is the temporary booth I built to do my engine bay. A bit longer and I could have enclosed the entire car.
