%REPLIES%. Answer . Try any hobby store for supplies and look around online to find anything else that you may not always find at your local store.. Answer . It's odd you should bring this up as I had the same problem. I found a picture of the tree I was looking for (Japanese tree that I wa…nted to paint on my bedroom feature wall) and I found a good picture off the internet, then I rented a projector. The projector picks up the imagine of the picture of the tree and you can adjust the largeness of it. It works very well.. Answer . \nYou could also find a picture of the tree that you want and with a pencil, divide it into 2 or 3 inch squares and then mark the wall into squares(as many squares as are on picture), then paint each square as you see it.

Because a brush leaves a thicker coat of paint. When you use a roller a common mistake is to spread the paint over too large area. Also you paint over the cut in bits of wall making the coat even thicker in those places.. ANSWER: . Its because of shadow. The open wall has little shadow, the corn…er has 2 other sides absorbing the light. Corners are always looking darker than the walls. (MORE)
Can you paint oak coloured paneling wainscoting then paint the top wall or are you suppose to wallpapper?
Answer . Oak as you probably know is very expensive, so if it's in good shape, skip the paint, keep the oak and take a digital picture of the wainscoting and take it to a wallpaper store and match up some wallpaper. It's a matter of taste and both look good, but wallpaper gives it a more cozy fee…l.. If you are adamant on painting your oak wainscoting then white looks crisp and clean. (MORE)
You can thicken runny interior paint as long as it is a latexpaint. You can use a thickening agent called cellosize hydroxyethylcellulose. Do not put more than twenty five percent of this agentinto the paint or you will not be able to roll it.

Answer . I think you mean a mobile home. It depends what kind of interior walls you have. I have seen them painted, but they put a base coat/sealer on them before they painted.
Well... all you have to do is put a paint brush on the wall and rub it up and down ........ then you have to let it dry then paint a different color over top of the other color but only half paint it... then your wall will be PERFECT!!!!!!
The base paint that is used on a house interior and exterior wallsis called primer. Primer comes in white or gray, with white beingthe more popular. Primer allows the outer coats of paint to stickto the wall more easily and cover up discolored blemishes.
The best thing for an internal stone wall is lime wash as it lets the wall 'breathe' so lets moisture out. It prevents damp and mould. It can be bought in a reasonably wide variety of colours now as well. http://www.mikewye.co.uk/mikeprices.htm#limewash Hope this helps :D
You can use interior Latex pearl paint on your bathroom wall. Pearlpaint adds a special finish to the wall.
My landlord just painted my interior doors with white oil based paint doesnt match the walls. Can I paint over them with latex paint?
NO, latex paint does not adhere to oil. It wil go on, but the first time you brush up against it the top coat will start to crack and peel and just generally look terrible. If you wish to change the colour, a coat of oil paint is the thing.
Assuming you mean whether to choose latex or oil paint: latex is easier to apply and to clean up, and it doesn't have the penetrating odor of oil, but oil looks better, protects better and lasts longer.
The simple answer is: When they need it. Todays interior paints don't really fail, they do however get dirty, dinged up and worn away on areas of high use. How often this occurs will depend on the people living there. In other words, the walls in my sister's house who is single and has no kids or pe…ts are in a lot better condition than the walls in my sister's house who has 5 kids or the sister's house who has pets. If you are gentle on your walls you will probably want to repaint because you want to change the color before the room really needs painting. The California Paints website has a great section on historical colors. They have interior paint and exterior paint and you can browse by time period. Search for Craftsman colors. (MORE)
repair any cracks or holes with plaster or filler and sand smooth. lightly sand the wall to increase adhesion of new paint. if covering a dark wall with a lighter colored paint, cover wall with primer before painting.
I paid Â£80 per room for the painter nad provided paint myself. Took him two days.
There are several reasons why you should not use exterior paint indoors. First, exterior paints contain mildew inhibitors. They used to use mercury; I'm not sure if they still do. But in any event, you DON'T want these chemicals outgassing into your house. Second, exterior paints are desig…ned to "chalk" as they weather. This is definitely undesirable inside your house. Third, exterior paints are formulated to be more flexible than interior paints, because they are subjected to a much wider range of temperatures. This means that they don't dry as hard. IOW, indoors, they'll always be a bit soft or sticky. Answer: . In the US, house paints no longer contain mercury as a mildewcide. . Inexpensive vinyl paints will chalk outside. It's not a design as much as a quality issue. 100% acrylic paints can withstand UV rays without chalking for several years. . Interior paints are designed to be washed and scrubbed while exterior paints are designed to hold up to UV rays without chalking and to be flexible to withstand freeze-thaw cycles. (MORE)
Any good paint retailer will carry an additive to put into your paint to achieve an iridescent finish. Read the label carefully for best results..
Many pro painters use a spray gun.. It is many times faster than using a brush or roller.
Orange. . Why are you using a primer? If the walls are already painted, just apply 2 coats of the paint that you want to use. If you use primer, have the paint store tint the primer toward the orange color that you have chosen.

That will depend on your lifestyle and favourite colours. If you entertain frequently and want a sophisticated look try taupe or grey for the walls, and paint your trim to match (or one shade darker than the walls). A good area rug with the aubergine in the pattern, casual tables in black lacquer …or natural wood, throw pillows that include the black & aubergine in their pattern and window treatments to match the wall colours will finish the look. Note: if you truly love aubergine, you could go to a solid window treatment in the same colour as the sofa for impact. If yours is a casual life style, try sage or celery green on the walls (trimmed in white or natural wood), with tan or natural wood casual tables and accessories. Sisal floor coverings and bamboo window coverings will give the room texture and keep the look casual. For a very feminine look a soft, slightly greyed lilac on the walls would be wonderful. (MORE)
Painting a dining room wainscot on bottoms of wall 40high painted a dark cherry what colour should you paint the top part?
Stay with a warm neutral such as a rich beige or camel color. Avoid colors that are too grey as they tend to make a room look cold in combination with cherry. Do avoid light cream shades as the red tones will bounce off the walls and they will seem to be a shade of pink.
A tan shade that has enough depth so it doesn't look like beige and can stand up to the floor color.
What type of painting is done on wet plaster with pigments suspended in water so that the plaster absorbs the colours and the painting becomes part of the wall?
In it's essence, fresco or fresco painting is an - application of natural mineral pigments to a surface on which a following chemical reaction takes place: Ca(OH)2(s) + CO2(g) ----> CaCO3(s) + H2O(l) Calcium Hydrate (burned lime stone or marble mixed with water) combined with carbon dioxide result…ing in the formation of Calcium Carbonate - lime stone, marble. The pigment gets trapped within the newly formed calcite crystal. It is like "Painting with molten Marble". from FrescoSchool.org. (MORE)

Without seeing the wallpaper, how could I possibly know? If there is a background color on the wallpaper, you can go with that or any other color in it. If you use a color in the pattern, a flower or something, painting the walls the same color is going to bring that out more in the wallpaper. Depen…ding on the pattern, this could be good or bad.

I am going to paint my colours one wall will be babouche yellow but i am unsure what colours go with this pale yellow?
For a monochromatic colour scheme, use other yellows in the same colour family, in this case a darker tone. You can also go to another colour entirely. Yellow and green are cool and clean looking together, yellow and blue are wonderful together, yellow and chocolate brown would work if the room ha…s lots of light. (MORE)
You are painting a wall in your kitchen babouche yellow and you are wondering what other colours to paint your kitchen?
For a monochromatic look, use a yellow of the same colour family (you will find them on the same paint strip as the Babouche) either darker or lighter as you find most pleasing. For something a little different try a pale green or blue as contrast.

That often happens when you roll the paint on the wall and cut-in the corners with a brush. The different texture resulting from the application causes the light to be reflected differently.
Quick Fix: If you only want to get rid of the look of the bubble you can use aneedle to let the air out of the bubble and apply some kind ofpressure on it to hopefully have it show a bit less... However thisis really more of an aesthetic fix How to properly fix a bubble: There are 2 reasons why …a bubble would show on a freshly paintedwall. 1- If it's only the last layer of paint that's bubbling, thereason it's doing is because of a lack of adherence (grip). Toproperly fix this you need to scrape off the peeling paint, cleanthe surface (or sand), apply a bonding primer, apply a bit ofdrywall compound to repair the wall and repaint over. 2- It there are multiple layers forming the bubble (the wayto find out is if you can see the bare wall once you remove thebubbling paint), this means that the original paint film did notproperly adhere to the surface... and the more coats of paint youapply on top of it, the more it pulls on the original coat ofpaint. This happens more often on Plastered Walls either because itwasn't given enough drying time... or no primer was used. Eitherway, this is potentially a big problem and would be best to have aqualified painting contractor go over to asses. (MORE)
Not a good idea if you expect it to last. I would strip it, re-prime it properly then paint it.
Start with a clean dry, neutrally painted wall. Get your dimensions accurately measured and on a piece of graft-paper, draw your design for the wall. Make sure it is to scale. If you have a projector, use it to project your drawing onto the wall and using chalk outline the drawing. If you d…o not have a projector, and can not borrow or rent one, use a chalk line from the hardware store or use a long level and tape measure to draw a grid on the wall and manually draw your picture onto the wall using your scale drawing as reference. There are even people with enough confidence and talent to use chalk and draw the outlines of their design directly onto the wall, without a preliminary drawing, but this can lead to problems with composition and perspective down the road. If you are just starting out or relatively new to doing murals, it is wisest to work from a scale drawing. Once your outline is finished, take a good look at the drawing and make whatever final adjustments you feel are necessary. Then start painting. Use a good quality acrylic paint, that is light fast and permanent. If you are using brushes be sure to use good quality brushes of a large enough size to cover the large areas you are painting. The smaller brushes will be used for the finish and detail work, so don't forget them. Many mural artists use air-brushes (or even air-guns for very large walls) but I recommend you have lots of practice with an air-brush before undertaking a mural. This is no place to be "learning". If you are right handed, start in the upper left corner, (for lefties, start in the upper right, moving down and away from your starting point. Work on any background areas that will have subjects in the middle and foreground that will over lap them. Work carefully and try not to smudge the chalk lines of the areas you have yet to paint. Move on to your middle ground and then your foreground, only painting over things that are already dry. Once the basic painting is finished, go back and add your finishing touches (shading, highlights and fine details). Remember to step back regularly to see how the overall wall is progressing. Often when you scale a picture up you will fine the small areas that have no detail in them become much bigger and feel empty. You may want to add more texture or detail to these areas. Take your time, murals need to dry before you can paint over things. Working standing on a step ladder or even a chair is fatiguing, so take regular breaks to walk around or stretch. Look after yourself too, eat, drink lots of water and occasionally change your focal distance to keep your eyes from tiring. Once the wall is finished, have one last look at it, check for things you forgot, make all of your last minute changes and walk away to let it dry. One of the hardest things is to know when to stop, the bigger a painting is, the more temptation there is to keep adding things. This can result in a mural that is cluttered or too "busy." Know how close the viewer is going to be from the mural when it is finished. The closer they will be, the more fine detail the mural can support. If your Mural will be on an exterior wall ten feet off the ground, it is wasted time energy and talent to do features that are two inches high. Finally if the wall will be in a high traffic area or a high moisture area it is a good idea to seal it. Give the wall two to three days to dry fully, then use a low-luster or mat finish polyurethane, applied with a roller, to seal the entire wall. *Please note, many polyurethanes will yellow over time so read the can carefully. I do know some mural artists who use a professional grade air-gun to spray the sealer on, but this requires better knowledge of the workings of an air-gun than most people have. Not to mention over-spray and the need to work in a room that is properly prepared for the use of spay sealer. (MORE)
It's not recommended. Paint intended for ceiling use is flat and usually high pigment. On a wall where it will be touched, bumped, scraped etc. the finish will not hold up and will need to be repainted.
The best paint that I have found for interior and exterior is BEHR: glidden and color place smear which means that as you apply it, it is taking it off again if you brush over the same spot. BEHR also has primer in it so that you don't have to waste even more time priming the surface first (I have r…epainted my living room, bed room, children's bed room, bathroom, and entire outside of my house in the last 2 years so if I were you I would go with BEHR :) Hope this helps!

For a sophisticated look try a medium to dark tone of grey. Brown and/or beige work well, and lend a decidedly masculine look to a room. Greens will also tend to a more masculine look, but are harder to live with. A feminine feel can be achieved by using a light pinkish tone on the walls with …lots of cream to keep it from getting to "little girlie." (MORE)
Use a citrus based stripper that will cling to the wall and allow it to work overnight. However, an easier option would be to paint directly over the exterior paint with a good quality interior latex paint.
Buttermilk walls too and have one wall be an accent color like brown, terragon or some color to add interest
none,but white Another thought. Grey, a medium tone, true (or silver) grey would be nice, as would a navy blue if you want a bit of drama. Black would also work or as a compromise, one wall in black and the other three in silvery grey would really set off the purples and pinks. Word of adv…ice: do not paint any wall a very dark colour unless you have the permission of the owner of the house. It will take two or three coats to get the deep colour and two or three coats of white to return it to the original look. (MORE)
If the walls are painted lime coloured latex or acrylic, you can. If enamel, you can not. Maybe test a small part in an area that is normally unseen .
