Why does objects painted black dry faster than those white?
Black absorbs more energy than white- this extra energy could explain the faster drying time.
yes objects painted black dry faster than those painted white because the black absorbs more heat than the white
# Generally dark colors dry slower then light colors because of the high amount of pigment in them.
No, about the same times.
The colour is really irrelevant, what matters more in drying time is the base of the paint. In general, a matt white primer will dry faster than anything else.
Many paints are tinted with a glycol based colorant that doesn't dry. The white paint doesn't have this colorant, so it will dry at a slightly faster rate than a tinted paint.
Oil based paints now have alkyd rather than linseed oil but this is still a yellow liquid. The Alkyd is mixed with the pigment to make the paint but from the day it is applied the separation begins and the familiar yellowing begins. Water based paints do not contain alkyd or any other oil so they are non yellowing and are therefore a better choice for interiors. Water based paint is not quite as durable… Read More
If it's a latex base white paint or a primer of any kind, it will dry within an hour. Cure fully in about 8 hours. Oil based paint will take about 2-3 hours to dry to the touch, 24 hours to fully cure.
Why does mixing the primary colors of light make white light and why does mixing the primary colors of paint produce black paint?
Light includes all colors of the spectrum. Light passing through a prism (or water vapors, as in a rainbow) will split into each of the colors. So when you combine those colors together, the resulting color is white. To understand why paint colors appear the colors they do, you must remember that the eye sees only the colors of the spectrum which are reflected from that paint. So when you see red paint, you're really… Read More
White spirit takes off some enamels and alkyds.
1. Inexpensive2. Ubiquitous3. Coolest in summer sun.
I beileve that many, many people thought that white would look good on a president's house. The White House is a neoclassical structure, and white was a popular color for such buildings.
white black and brown duhhhh
Go to Home Depot, Lowe's or even Walmart and buy Goo-gone and it will remove the paint from your countertop
I believe orange brick is very beautiful with black and white check it out it is by Dutchboy.
to reduce the effects of heat from the sun or other heat sources.Black absorbs heat and white reflects heat . To reflect the rays of the sun it also function is to reflect sunlight.
It's a thinner for many paints
it is said to do so and is most likely so =] but i sujest not painting walls black as yes it does indeed make a room appear smaller (i tried) -.-'
Yes, acrylic paint will stick to white cardboard.
4-6 hours if you used a primer.
They aren't and just like the United States they are all colors. One reason houses were not painted at one time is that paint was too expensive and when they were painted white that was the only color that could be bought. Why do you think that the houses in other countries are only white? I have lived in Germany and been all over Europe and guarantee they all aren't.
It's a tradition dating back to old barber poles, when the barber did surgery as well as cut hair.
Spirit based is oil based and oil and water don't mix. Use paint thinner or mineral spirits.
It's easier and less messy to scrape it off the glass with a metal spatula.
Paint can be applied over varnish, but it needs to be a compatible type of paint for the type of varnish, and the surface needs to be prepared by removing loose material, dirt and sanding. If it is not a compatible paint the surface needs to be etch primed. Contact a local paint supplier for advice.
Yes, you can because brown primer isn't that dark of a color.
How do you remove red window paint from white painted cement walls without taking off the white paint?
If the white paint is well-bonded to the surface, and the red is very fresh, a lot of times you can use a sharp razor blade to peel the red paint off the white. If the red is stuck on there, I would use a sanding block to remove as much red paint as I could without damaging much of the white paint, then put a coat of white paint over the area. Next time… Read More
Yes, as long as they are both the same base, you can mix many paints.
Will cleaning down a pool with white spirit prior to painting it with acrylic water based pool paint cause it to peal if allowed to completely dry before painting?
That sounds like a really risky thing to do I would personally not try it because white spirits are a petroleum product and this clashes with acrylics. If you feel that the surface needs cleaning prior to painting it I would be more inclined to use some sort of alcohol based thinners that agrees with acrylics..
You mix black and white and you will get gray
Yes, it is the paint, the rest is just color.
The process to produce white paint was invented by Dr. Peter Tillmann in Cologne Germany in the early 1930s
Yes, it's very common.
How do you you make a tan color paint when you only have red white yellow black and blue paint to mix?
Several reasons. Lowest cost colors. Longest lasting colors. Very visible under most conditions. Other colors would more likeyl confuse or not been seen by people who are color blind. While they may not see the difference between white and yellow, at least they don't blend into the road surface as red, blue or green definitely would. White and yellow paints are universal throughout the entire United States highway system. Yellow is always used to signify… Read More
You will get light yellow.
Shades of yellow or peach goes very well with the red carpet, just opt for some light shade colors, please don't go for any shades of blue it will spoil your interiors.
Of course! If it's a shiny finish you'll want to sand it before you paint it. But other than that it shouldn't be an issue at all for you to paint it. Just use thin coats and let it dry thoroughly between the coats.
Yes, you can.
It is NOT possible !
It will help, if you don't let it get into your skin. Wear gloves, or often rub your hands with vaseline. It also helps, when you open a window. It's not really healthy, but not totally poisonous either - I guess you can paint if you take care a little. for cleaning, try a citric agent like 'zest it' - that's less agressive.
One coat of aluminum paint.
Maybe, but Krylon Fusion for plastic would be a better choice. And it involves no prep work. Turns out Zinsser Bulls-Eye primer will bond to PVC fencing, after which you can use regular house paint on it.
Besides a few shades of black, white primer will reflect more light back than a gray primer under a paint color that doesn't cover well. Gray is often used under dark reds which would normally require several coats of paint to cover, The lighi that would normally be reflected from a white primer underneath the paint is, instead, absorbed by the gray primer, giving the illusion of an opaque surface.White primer is used under any… Read More
First, you should use a stain blocking primer, sold at most hardware or home improvement stores. If you don't use the primer, you may have to repaint several times, and the old color still might bleed through.
Did you thoroughly wash the woodwork with something like TSP? You may not see it but there could be dirt/oils on the woodwork. It may just need a second coat of paint.
