Cost

Spray paint is more expensive than paint from a can.

Preparation

Spray paint tends to splatter more than paint from a can so the surrounding area needs to be prepped with cloth.

Spray paint has stronger fumes than paint from a can, so it needs to be used in a well-ventilated area with a face mask.

Drying Time

Spray paint dries faster than paint from a can.

Final Outcome

Spray paint has a smoother finish than paint applied with a brush.
