Re: Do I need an Extraction Fan

Okay thanks! LatinFlavor, is that what you do, do you lease it? I will try that, but I wonder if you have to buy their solution in order for them to lease it to you. I don't have their solution , I have Oceans.

Re: Do I need an Extraction Fan

I know they lease for sure but I'm unaware of the requirements because I don't lease or even own one for that matter. I'm thinking of having one custom made by a friend.

Re: Do I need an Extraction Fan

Ever since I read that you were trying to find someone to make one for you, I've been trying to figure out myself how I would go about making one. I've got it sort of figured out, but aspects of it...I just don't know.

Yes, I bought one and used it yesterday. I loved it, but I"ve never used anything else, so I can't compare. I've been sprayed by someone else in a black one and she did miss a few spots on my arm until I pointed it out.

The lady at TBT told me I could buy a fan at Walmart or whatever and buy some filters at Lowes or Home Depot and just get sticky back velcro adhesives and hook the filters on with that. I haven't tried it yet though.

Re: Do I need an Extraction Fan

Oh, thanks for the reply TSTans. When I said that I kind of got off subject of the thread because Latinflavor had said something about this awesome overspray panel, but it's really expensive and she was saying she was trying to find someone to maybe make one for her. So I was saying that I was trying to figure out how to make my own overspray panel (still haven't figured it out yet, probably never will!). But thanks for the reply anyway, it is a good idea!

Hi Tanerin81! I saw that too. My brother is a builder. I'm going to show it to him and see what he recommends. He can duplicate stuff really well. I'll let you guys know what he says.

I'm mobile so if I had one of those, it would be for my house (aka studio). I'm really going to try to keep it mobile though.

Re: Do I need an Extraction Fan

Well, this overspray panel that is so expensive that we would like to duplicate can be used for mobile, so it wouldn't have to stay at your house, TSTans. Honestly though, it doesn't look like the easiest thing to transport, you have to pack it up into 3 different bags. But on the upside, you wouldn't have to deal with crazy tents that don't want to fold up!

Re: Do I need an Extraction Fan

I just used my fan for the first time, and OMG what a difference. But, my question is...do you place the fan in or out of your pop up tent for mobile spray tans ? Because there was quite a bit of gap between the hole in the tent and the fan. I'm worried that I may get solution on client's floors. Also, when I was done tonight, the fan was completely drenched in brown solution . Is this normal???

Re: Do I need an Extraction Fan

I am sure that the fan goes on the outside of the tent, but I understand how that would be a problem if the hole in the tent is bigger than the fan. I know some others have had that problem though. I think someone else said that they put some cardboard around the fan to close up the gap. I'm not sure if you want to do that or try to do something similar. I'm not real sure that would be a look you wanna go for! But you do what you have to do sometimes! I think the reason your fan was such a mess is because you had it inside the tent instead of outside. If you have it on the outside it will not be nearly as messy with solution all over the fan.
