If you bought a satin paint to match to an existing paint but it is a little too shiny can you add something to the paint to flatten it some?
if your paint is latex add some water to slightly dull the sheen, if you need to drastically dull the finish buy some flat paint in the same color and mix accordingly

Polymer paint can be bought from a paint store, and it can also bepurchased from the manufacturer. This paint is extremely durabledue to its bond to materials.
Painting is taking a liquid-like material of different colors (or you can mix different colors) and putting your thoughts and ideas on paper.
The one painting he actually sold, 'The Red Vineyard', was bought by an impressionist painter and art collector from Belgium, Anna Boch.
Painting is a form of art. It is a blend of colors that expressimagination, emotions, mind of an artist.
I have never heard that one before. They are either talking about a flat type paint, which is a flat color, with not gloss, like primer almost. Or, the other thing could be talking about primer. When you paint a car with a high dollar paint job, you want a great shine. The best shine comes from a pe…rfectly flat, no ripples, panel. Good luck with that one. When we paint those bubble gum colors on those cars we put about ten, or more coats of primer on the car, and then we block sand it down between every coat. Reason is, when we put on a coat, it adds thickness, or puts another layer on. Then, we take a piece of sand paper, and put it around a block of wood. What this does is remove the primer from the high spots, and leaves it in the low places, thus filling them in, and leveling out the high, and low spots, without having to use filler, or Bondo, which is frowned upon. If you block sand it enough times, that paint will shine like glass. It's all about smooth-ness. The paint has to be smooth, and applied properly, to achieve this, as well. ( Full Answer )
in paint there is pigment,binder and solvents.pigment is to make the colour of the paint,binder is to protect the sufface that it is put on ans solvents are just in it to make the pain up.
I prefer to paint all walls and ceilings satin. I have no idea why people just automatically think that ceilings have to be flat...or even white. I do satin on the ceilings because of dust, yes dust does stick to the ceilings, esp near AC vents and around ceiling fans. Have you ever tried to sweep y…our flat white ceiling to get the dust off after a few years? It just smears. \n. \nI think satin ceilings make small rooms brighter and larger. You must use satin or semi on the ceiling in the bathrooms, a bathroom environment is the one interior space that is actually most like an outdoor space with water splashing, steam, humidity, extreme temp changes, I wonder if it would be best to use exterior paint in the bathroom.\n. \nFor ceilings though I pick a white with a bit of grey and go all satin.

You bought Sherwin Williams flat paint and decided to change to a satin finish is there something to add to the flat paint to change it to a satin finish?
No, there is not a product In America that can do that. I work for Sherwin-Williams and know this for a fact. If you add more of the High Gloss version of the same exact color you can move the gloss from flat to satin.

if they are the same such as both latex, then yes. if one is oil and the other latex then no. if you are not sure apply a universal primer first.

How do you prep walls that have been painted with a satin finish paint if you want to paint again with a satin finish paint?
The paint finish doesn't significantly change the surface preparation necessary. If the paint is the same type (water based going over waterbased or enamel over enamel) then the preparation is simply: . cleaning, . remove loose material, . fill any holes or hollows, . sanding and . wiping, . … If you are changing the type of paint (eg: painting waterbased over enamel) you may need to use an etch primer to "key" the surface and give the new paint a texture to grip onto after sanding, and otherwise prepare as above. ( Full Answer )
Yes, you can. The whole problem with flat paint over satin is the gloss sheen bleeding through the flat finish. I typically do one of two things for a customer when they have this situation: Either I just plan on two coats of the new paint, or I paint the walls with cheap flat white paint and then p…aint the top coat with the new paint. I prefer the latter, as I always have buckets of cheap flat white leftover, which saves some cash, as the top coat is usually about $30 per gallon. ( Full Answer )
You will have no problem painting satin over top of flat paint. Just remember to use the appropriate paint that will stick to the old coating. If the old coating is latex (water based) you can go over it with latex or alkyd (oil based) paint. If the old coating is oil based you can only go over it w…ith oil based paint or a hi performance latex that is specialy made to go over oil. Most latex will not stick to oil based paint. ( Full Answer )
LOL...no sorry, it will just be a bit shinier than anticipated. (gloss is quite scary if painted over an entire wall - better for trim and cabinets, etc)
mix a gallon of flat latex paint with your satin latex paint and you will reduce the statin gloss by 50 percent
Whenever you want to paint over a shiny surface such as gloss paint, you must first lightly sand the entire surface to make the paint stick. I didn't do that once and the paint looked great anyways...until it all started peeling off a week or so later. The best bet is to lightly sand, prime and th…en paint. ( Full Answer )
You didn't mention whether you were using latex or oil based primer and paint, but generally the point of using primer is so that you can paint over it with any form of wall paint. Just read the label on your primer can to make sure it is compatible. On the other hand, if you wanted to paint the p…rimer over the satin gloss, you need to sand the surface lightly to remove the sheen of the paint and provide a suitable surface for the primer to adhere properly. ( Full Answer )
Yes as long as you use the same base paint. You just need to sand it enough to where the paint will adhere. Make sure if the original paint is latex, use latex. If its oil based, use oil based.
More important is, that both paints are of the same kind (like: oil-based paint, acrylic paint, latex paint). Semi-gloss is more easily painted over then high gloss, but first better find out what the old paint layer is made of. Check with the help of alcohol - if paint comes off in any way when you… rub it with a cloth of alcohol, it's latex or acrylic paint (and can be painted over with acrylics). ( Full Answer )
Yes this should not be a problem. Satin paint makes a better base for instance then gloss paint. Always clean and sand the area you intend to paint.
you cant move down the scale matt, satin, silk, gloss. you can move up you might be able to dilute the colour, i tend to mix my own paints, with the samplers from diy stores, i suggest you buy a few samplers roughly the same colour as the paint and mix them together well, dont add the samples to …quickly as the paint might split. incidently this is a great way of saving money buy giant pots of bog standard white matt, choose the colour you want on the chart and then buy a colour about 2-3 shades darker then mix with your white. beware you must mix to much in case u run out ( Full Answer )
YOU can't, but the paint dept where you bought it often can if it's the right base. Take the can to them, many are very helpful and will do changes to paint that they have sold.
No because it looks like the same color sort of. Also it like a litte lighter but you barely can tell .There is technically no difference. That is your answer,Thank you
the answer is GO TO A HARDWARE STORE AND ASK FOR THE PAINT ISLE OR ORDER PAINT ONLINE!!!!
If painting a scratch on the hood of a 15 year old car and you bought new paint is there any way to get the paint to match better and should I worry about the fading of the car from the sunlight?
the severity of the fade is dependant on the colour. often reds and yellows and some whites are the worst. heavily metallicised or pearled paints are often better wearing to sun fade or bleaching..BUT.. often harder to match due to their complexity of the colour itself. often repainting a hood requi…res repainting the whole hood. sometimes it requires the painting the hood and the top portion of the fenders with a blending/feathering/fading technique at the downward curve of the fender. the technique requires the new colour to slowly fog into the old colour in an area where you expect the colour to change or "gradiate" sharp or dramatic curves are where the blends usually take place. a fender flare can be repainted off the car and then reinstalled and look perfect due to the complex nature of the curves over the relatively small surface area. old 50's style hoods often have chrome strips down the middle. you could have 1 side painted up to the strip. if the fade is not dramatic the match will look perfect even though it is not. as a general rule when a scratch is cleaned (washed wit soap and water and then paint thinners) if at any point through the cleaning the scratch becomes invisible.. it does not need painting. (thinned clearcoat can be used as a touchup then wet sanded as a guarantee) wetsanding and polishing will do for 90% of those kinds of scratches. If the scratch is not white in colour (on clearcoated cars) often paint is required. ( Full Answer )
Yes, it will give you a finish between the two. Just remember it you need to touch up a spot down the road, you are going to have a hard time, unless you make the exact mixture again, that's why it is better not to try mixing different paints together. Its hard enough getting the color to match e…ven when you have a paint code to follow. ( Full Answer )
If satin paint is latex and the gloss you are painting is latex painting over is fine..but if one is oil paint and one is latex they will not stick on wall surface...check for type by doing simple test using rubbing alcohol and scrub a spot if there is residue left on the rag it most likely is latex…...if nothing on the cloth most likely oil paint or alkyd paint ( Full Answer )
Yes but there is no guarantee that the colour on the surface will not streak or show a different colour through. Added to this is the fact in many houses in particular there are spray polishes used. These become airborne and do make their way to pained surfaces even if you don't actually polish that… surface directly. Its a safer bet with same colour paint to give it a light rub with sand paper , then wipe with a clean damp cloth and then the satin coat should adhere to a much better standard ( Full Answer )
Yes, Eggshell and Satin are very similar. Though i would recommend scuffing the walls with a sanding block or sandpaper to help with adhesion . Also current and new colors will make a difference, you may need to use primer if applying a lighter color over a darker one or if there are excessive stain…s on the walls. ( Full Answer )
yes, although with every paint job you should prepare the surface first. It is easier to put eggshell paint over satin paint finishes, but it is harder to do the opposite. To put a satin paint over an eggshell paint, you would have to sand to obtain a smooth surface first.
If you have the satin, you can add flat paint and take some of the sheen off. This would have to be done before application. It will never be a true flat though.
Yes. As with any prep, the old paint must be given a "tooth" for the new paint to grab. This is done by sanding or painting it with a special primer that will give it a "tooth". Either way it must be a clean, sound surface. As always, in old homes, be careful around lead based paint.
The buyer is unknown but they did buy it for 800 francs a lot for a new painter at that time.
If they are both of the same base you can. Satin paint can be an acrylic or a latex,or an oil. Check on the can cleaning instructions for base. Jason Pollock used both in his work 'Bluepoles' which hangs in the Canberra museum I think
The purpose of painting is to show the beauty of your mind to others. painting is on of the most creative work.
The sheen. Satin has a little bit of a silky gloss, flat means: really matte.
If you take it back to the store you bought it, they can sometimes change it.
Yes, after ensuring that the surface is clean, oil-free and dull. Lightly sand the shiny surface to help the new paint adhere. Even though the paint is marketed as paint with primer, it still requires basic prep work prior to application.
As long as they are the same base, ie latex and latex, or oil and oil, then it will not be a problem mixing sheens. Just make sure that you have enough to complete your job with, hopefully, a little touch up paint left because you probably will not be able to match it in the future.
Satin or Eggshell are more resistant to dirt and easier to clean than Flat. But new advances in high-quality paint have recently created Flat paints that are easier to clean. I'm an interior designer and I typically use Eggshell on walls.
If you mix a flat and semi-gloss 1:1 you should end up with a paint in the eggshell range. Mix the same paints 1:3 and you should end up with a satin. Experiment with small amounts to get the desired gloss.
Yes, as long as the surface is free of dirt, wax and grease, and the eggshell and satin are both the same type, ie latex or oil, then you should have no trouble at all painting a satin sheen paint over an eggshell. Also, if the base is water based and the topcoat is oil, that will work fine too.
It depends on the type of paint. Lacquers can be flattened with the addition of flattening agents, however most architectural coatings can not be flattened with over-the-counter additives.
If it's an oil based paint, once it has dried fully, about 72 hours, you can sand it with fine sandpaper or use some 00 steel wool to reduce the gloss. Your results my vary on a water based paint.
There are different kinds of satin paint - you'd have to know if it was latex, oil, enamel, alkyd etc.
Satin paint usually takes about 2-4 hours to dry, but if you are recoating, then it will take 8 hours.
Wassily Kandinsky was a Russian Painter. He is best known as painting the first purely abstract work. Some of his paintings include "Der Blaue Reiter" painted in 1903 and "On White 2" painted in1923.
To accurately answer this question I have to know the type of the paint and possibly its color.
