I wouldnt recommend spray paint to you.
It will put alot of paint your cannon, and thus clogs it all up.
When paint is on the electrodes, the chance is big that they wont spark anymore.
Just use deodorant, or buy yourself a large can of hairspray for almost no money.

Could you present us with any pictures? :)

No it does not. It also gums stuff up.

Starter fluid works the best as far as aerosols are concerned.

You could use propane or stater fluid for carboratores or even butane for lighters..Im not an expert on combustions but I know these gasses burn clean.
