How to say "careful not to spill the paint on the floor" (as a *directive* telling someone to take care not to do it.)

"Cuidate/ponga cuidado que no derrames la pintura sobre el piso"


or perhaps "ponga cuidado que no se derrame la pintura sobre el piso / suelo"

"Tener cuidado" is the common expression for "to be careful".

- Tenga cuidado de que no se derrame la pintura...
- Ten cuidado de no derramar la pintura...
- Con cuidado. Que no se vaya a derramar la pintura...
- Cuidado, no vayas a derramar la pintura...
