Yea just take it off... Remember to spray from about 6 inches away, any more and it will build texture and less will spray too much at one point too quickly and it may drip.

Yea you want a light mist to hit it. It will dry almost instantly. Too close spraying and it pools up and dries weird

You have to hold the can about 8-10 inches away from the spray surface.

As "Jgill1992" said, you need to shake the can about 1-2 minutes, and even after you start spraying you need to shake it from time to time.

You need 4-5 coats for better finish and easy to remove later!
