Information About Different Paint

There are many different paints, stains, and varnishes that are available today and this can make choosing paint a headache for anybody that has no idea what they are looking for. There are two major categories in which paint falls in and that is oil based and water based. Varnishes and stains also fall under the same categories.

Paints that are oil based come in gloss, semi gloss, or matte. It wears well and it provides an easy clean surface. It is good to use oil based paint on doors, windows, or just about anywhere that needs to have a finish that provides a protection. If you need a good washable surface you can also use oil based paint on ceilings and also on walls. It is never a good idea to paint over top of wallpaper because it makes it harder to remove from the wall.

Water based paint is much easier to work with this is because the brushes and all painting tools can be cleaned using only water. It is the choice paint for walls and also for ceilings and for textured surfaces outside.

When painting any new surface it is best to use a primer. This will help because it will prevent the paint from being absorbed. Also by doing this it gives the paint something to stick to. The primer the you choose should be manufactured by the same company. For a hint you can use water based primer for oil paint but you can't use an oil based primer for water based paint.

The number of coats the you will need depends on how porous the surface is, and the thickness of the paint you are applying. The overall quality of the paint has a big factor too.

Ideas on Professional Painting

By changing any room in your home paint helps; it has the ability to change any dull room into a nice eye catcher. Many people choose to paint every room in their home. Just about anything can be painted. You can use your choice of object to paint with from a sponge to a roller to a brush. Using different ways of applying the paint will result in different textures and looks.

Before you start anything you should decide on what color you would like to paint. Paint swatches really do not give the true color that the paint will be. Bright and also darker colors happen to look stronger on walls, ceilings and woodwork. Pale colors happen to fade after time. Before you buy all of the paint you should first purchase a small sample and paint a tiny area, this will help you be certain that it is the right color. If it is a color that you are planning to have for a few years then it would be best to buy a little more then needed so you can match up the paint at a later date if needed.

After you have your paint you need to decide what you are going to paint with. I find it easier to paint woodwork with a brush and walls and ceilings with a roller and a sponge for the closer jobs. You need to pick a few brushes or rollers that are different sizes so you can use them in the middle and the close to jobs.

After you are finished you need to clean all of your brushes in the proper solvent, the proper solvent will be stated on the side of the can. If you are going to take a break you can store your tools in a plastic bag to prevent the paint from drying. If your painting job is going to last for a few days you could seal the tools in a plastic bag and store then in the freezer for overnight.

The tips mentioned above are really helpful. So, one must remember those tips and apply them as well .
