How to choose the right paint
The most popular wall paints are water-based paints. Alkyd and oil-based paints are used much less frequently. It is caused by such advantages of water emulsion paint as:
- The water base provides absence of sharp smells in the room;
- The drying process of the painted surface is much faster;
- Water emulsion paints are easily diluted with water to the required concentration;
- In contrast to alkyd and oil paints, water emulsion paints are safer.
Paint application methods
The paint can be applied to walls with three different tools:
- Brush. It can be used to paint corners, joins (floor, ceiling, slopes) or to apply original decorative patterns invented by the designer.
- Roller. With the help of this tool it is better and faster to paint the main surface area.
- A spray gun. With this device the paint is applied to the surface by spraying. This method is the fastest, and the paint is applied to the walls evenly over the entire area.
Some features of wall painting
The first layer of paint applied to the surface of the wall actually performs a control function. The application of this coat will show whether mistakes were made in the process of preparing the surface for painting. For this purpose it is necessary to examine the wall with the help of a light bulb after the first layer has dried out.
In case of small defects, they can be eliminated with the help of acrylic putty or fine sandpaper, but if the defects are large – all the work will have to be reworked. If no irregularities are found – you can apply a second layer.
In order to carry out high-quality painting works, it is necessary to remember about the following important points:
- Paint should be applied evenly;
- Paint from top to bottom, so that paint droplets do not get on the painted surface;
- The wet-edge rule. Paint should be applied to the newly laid putty, work should not be interrupted. If a wet coating is applied to the dry part of the wall, the surface will remain visible.
