As you know, today there are many types of paints.In order to choose the right one that you really need, look at some of the features of a paint formula.

This type of paint can be prepared in advance of the main works.However, it is necessary once again to mix right before application on the wall.When the mixture becomes a suitable consistency, it is possible by means of tinting liquid to give the desired shade.Colera by combining it possible to obtain different colors.This work is recommended to entrust the masters.

Today in building materials stores that sell paint and varnish products, there is a program in the computer selection of paint for painting walls.It allows to choose the color of the mixture based on many factors, including a change in the error paint color after drying.This program is quite handy and useful, it is very important to pick up all the paint cans that have the same color, to result in a surface of the walls in the room the same color, without flaws.In the extreme case it is allowed to dissolve the paint, which is enough to paint one wall entirely.Then may eventually turn out a bit different shades on the different walls, but it is not so noticeable and more would like a special effect.


What about oil paints?They are rarely used for the interior renovation of apartments.Most often they are used in non-residential premises, for example, for painting walls in utility rooms and closets.This type of paint is applied to the working surface somewhat differently than the latex mixture.However, here too it is important to thoroughly distribute the material surface.First of all, we must remember that when applying the first layer does not adhere to any one direction, on the contrary, the paint is distributed by different strokes.The mixture should be preprinted such that it is completely and uniformly covered the entire work surface.Sometimes, oil paint applied zigzag strokes.Thus between the strips leave a small space.The mixture is then smeared across the wall using a semi-dry brush.The result is a leveling layer.Painted surface to dry for 5 hours, after which another layer, which is generally thinner than the first.

Basic requirements for painting

to spend quality painting surfaces, need some knowledge.In particular, painted walls require pre-prepared.These works include leveling and cleaning of dust.To successfully complete this task, as the painting of the walls in the apartment, use some tools - sponge, brush, roller and spray gun.Regarding

technology using water emulsions, this mixture is usually applied to the walls of 2-3 layers.Wherein the first of them is strictly required to distribute horizontally second - vertically.In the case where it is planned to apply three coats of paint, the first and last divided vertically, and the middle (i.e., second) in the horizontal direction.This order is important.Therefore, do not mix.

There is another requirement Painting: Apply a coat of paint is necessary to each other, without having to wait until the previous dry up.The joints of the walls and ceiling corners and various remote places, it is desirable to paint with a brush.For this purpose, convenient to a brush with a long handle.

How to choose a roller


by roller is possible to achieve high-quality and effective results.Besides this tool to paint faster than a brush.But before you buy a roll, it must be able to choose the right.For example, based on polyacrylic and nylon tools are characterized in that they have good strength.Therefore, these rollers are more resistant to corrosion.Usually they have white or beige color.They are recommended for use with polyurethane, epoxy paints and enamels.

sale yet available polyester and velor cushions.It is recommended to use for painting with acrylic or oil paints.These mixtures are well absorbed in these rolls, this is especially true of polyester.Velour is different durability and flexibility.It can be used as a varnish for coating and for finishing.

Three coats of paint is applied, which are rolled by means of a roller pressed.With this tool, you can gently and evenly distribute the paint across the surface to be coated.

It is important to properly prepare the wall for painting work.From this it depends largely on the quality of the final coating and further durability.No matter what kind of paint you choose.Training is always done almost identically:

  1. First you need to remove the old paint and wallpaper.
  2. After that, the work surface should be thoroughly sanded.The most important thing - to put on the wall putty and smoothed cracks and chipped.
  3. Further work surface re-polished.Then apply a second layer of putty to even out the wall completely.Work on the plastered wall painting will be easier.
  4. next step - the primer.It is desirable to apply before and after the filler.This will improve the grip.

Before painting the walls with his own hands, always make sure that the room air temperature is suitable and there is no draft.If the temperature is high and at the same time in the apartment there are drafts, the paint will dry too quickly, which is not very good.The fact that due to this unevenness may appear, the cracks and swelling.In addition, it is better not to start painting, if the temperature is too low, and the air is wet or dry.The desired quality of the coating is still in such circumstances it is simply impossible to achieve.

for paint application using rollers, sponges and brushes.The tool is selected depending on the desired effect.For example, a roller to evenly distribute the mixture over the surface.Brush, in turn, can paint small areas, joints, eliminate various defects caused in the course of painting.Sponge is useful in case you want to give the surface an unusual appearance, decorate it.It should take a paint having a thick consistency.The liquid mixture will not work here.For the decor may need more and rollers equipped with a long nap.They allow you to distribute the paint in different directions on large surface areas.However, the most convenient for painting the walls will be a roller equipped with medium-length fibers.

In order to make it convenient to paint roller, acquired a special tray, which is filled with a small amount of paint.Perimeter walls is best to paint with a brush.It must be equipped with a soft pile.Only such a brush can make a smooth coating.When using a rigid brush the surface in most cases turn out rough.

Do not paint the entire surface of the roller.At the edges is better to "walk" with a brush.In general, to roller painted well, his nap should be how to soak up paint.So first take the plank (or heavy paper) and rolled over it covered with paint roller several times.Only then proceed to paint the wall.

begin to paint can be anywhere broken surface, but it is advisable to do it from the top.Then drops and drips that will drip from above, do not spoil the already painted areas.

Decorative painting

often to add flavor to the interior of the premises, resorted to the method of staining decorated.It is somewhat similar to ordinary paint technology mix.Only in this case use some special tools:. Stencil to paint the walls, wide sponge roller with raised fibers, etc. All these devices allow the surface to give an unusual color.

Do not think that when the decoration used special types of decorative paints.This opinion is in fact erroneous.The most important thing in decorative painting - a technique applying different coatings.

This painting technique is quite simple.So, there are several paint application techniques:

  • For example, you can take a round brush, dip it in the paint, and then just start hitting her on the painted surface.Then wait until the paint dries, and we put the next layer of the roller.At the same time the following mixture for coloring need to pick up a little lighter.This will allow the dark figures "break through" the second layer.After this painting wall decoration design turns very unusual.
