Painting Tips & Techniques

  • Use a primer

    Primer allows the paint to adhere better by providing a uniform surface, and will help it last longer. It can also seal a porous surface, block out stains from bleeding through the topcoat, prevent rust formation on iron and steel, and prevent tannin bleed on wood.

  • Spray Painting

    Spray painting, when done properly, is a great way to finish a project quickly. It’s also useful for painting objects that have a variety of angles or corners that can’t be accessed easily by a brush.

  • Remove old paint before you begin your project

    Remove chipped, peeling or flaking paint or rust from objects with a wire brush or fine-grit sandpaper.
