NO. Powder coating is undertaken by stripping the metal back to a clean, grease free surface. The powder is than sprayed on to the metal and its then fired in a kiln.

Primer is almost always the exciting color of light gray, so if you're painting with a light color, you should stick with the gray.

You can use either enamel (oil-based) paint or latex (water-based) paint. If you are using latex paint, you need to use a primer (undercoat) first. The paint store will have a special primer that allows you to paint latex over enamel. If you are going to do this, it is also a good idea to either...

Answer . \nI have found the best solvent for removing dried oil based paint is CONTACT CEMENT CLEANER/REMOVER. As always, check first on an inconspicuous area to be sure the fabric will not be damaged by the solvent. Dab a small amount of solvent onto a clean WHITE rag and rub the spot. Do not use...
Did you use flat finish instead of semi-gloss? Flat doesn't have as hard of a finish so it lets more of the moisture penetrate. Depending on what was on the wall before, moisture may be penetrating to the plaster or drywall and leaching out minerals that are leaving the stain.
Try to determine what the color is and get stain just slightly lighter. Newer wood is often softer than it used to be so it absorbs more color. Apply 1 coat and compare it to the old. You can put another coat on or let it sit longer to make it darker. The type of finish will affect it also....

As soon as you can. Depending on the type of paint and how well the surface was prepared, when the paint is completely dry as you pull the tape there can be a strong enough film of paint that it pulls loose from the surface along with the tape. You can do it after it is completely dry, just take...
Anything with an acid or solvent base could do it. It takes very little to etch the paint. To get to bare metal, something deliberate was used. Stripper of some kind.

Vandalism is when the painting is done without the owners permission regardless of the type of painting. While some spray painters are very talented, if it is done without permission, it is vandalism.

Answer . I always shake the can back and forth for about a minute then stir the paint until the thick stuff is off the bottom. If you are lucky enough to have one of those paint shakers then it makes the work even easier. Good luck.
It increases the humidity in the air, so your windows will steam up and it will take longer for your paint to dry. If it is possible, open a window or turn on an exhaust fan to clear the humidity out of the room. Even a normal fan will help. If using an oil based product, it is more important to...

Any form of alcohol, but I wouldn't really recommend any sort of liquor/drinkable alcohol - unless it's clear, like Vodka , or Everclear - and even then, you need some strong stuff.Isopropyl or Ethyl (for medical purposes, can be picked up on the cheap) works very well. There's also Denatured...
Ignoring any allowance for doors and windows then the wall area of this square room is : 4 x 20 x 12 = 960 sq feet. As three coats are being applied then the total area = 3 x 960 = 2880 sq ft. 1 gallon of paint covers 465 sq ft therefore 2880 sq ft requires 2880/465 = 6.1935 gallons. 1 gallon of...

I say Walmart. Most likely in the arts and crafts.
It beads up and doesn't dry. It you touch it it will wipe off. It may leave a faint stain, but it won't show up strongly. If you put wax on spray paint then it will make it hard to remove the spray paint and it will also make the spray paint look glossier.
