    Never tried it. Seems like it might be messy and you might end up with some surprises.
    I use a standard trim gun or quart size compressed air sprayer for bulk paints.
    Sometimes an airbrush.

    Here is an example of the rechargeable type:

    I have seen some rechargeable spray cans on line but never tried that.

    Ordinary house paint in cans, not aerosol, can be stored that way also. 1 litre/1 quart, 4 litres/ 1 gallon are examples. it helps to stop skimming and any rust at the lid. if left too long it will skim midway which can be cut out using an old sharp filleting knife or similar : after opening simply slice all the way around the inside of can and remove the disc then start normal stirring for use. I've also had luck with polyurathane finishes and trailer / steel finishing paints using this method.
