What is the best type of paint for crown moulding Flat Semi-Gloss Satin etc.?
Generally, a satin or semi-gloss sheen is best for decorative trim. The shinier paint will be a bit easier to apply, be smoother after application and will accent the crown molding. I always paint crown, doors, door trim, and baseboards in high gloss. Here in the south we also use only one color, white. I also use ceiling paint as the primer coat because I paint it (the crown moulding) when I paint the ceiling. Then I apply 1 coat of...

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 **** Another thought. Do not thin the paint too much as it will change the durability of the topcoat. Buying a 2nd qt, gallon of flatter paint will also change the sheen but cost you more in the end and you will have a bunch of paint sitting around....

Can you paint over semi gloss paint with satin paint?
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). ...

What would you do if your 12 year old son insisted on going out with his friends wearing one of his sisters favourite navy blue satin Chinese style dress with no underwear on?
you should 1st find out why he wants to and if he does burn the dress CORRECT ANSWER: That is of course silly. He should be wearing a bra and panties at least and maybe a half slip and stockings. If he is going to wear a dress then he needs panties for sure and not boxer shorts but soft silky nylon bikini panties and I would suggest a garter belt and stockings since most Chinese silk dresses have a slit up...

Using a curling iron on fabric satin ribbon is there something you can use to keep the curl in the ribbon?
"You could try hairspray or fabric starch." If you have a spray bottle - put in one cup cold water per 2 tsp of corn starch to make homemade starch. Or you can buy it. Hairspray works, but can get gummy. You can also soak in water, wind ribbon on a wood dowel and bake it at 200 degrees until its dry, they let sit until coool. I have wound ribbon on wooden dowels dry, but them in the oven at 200...
Did Hilda Morley paint?
I knew Hilda from 1973 until her death, and discussed much of her life with her. She never spoke about painting herself. Gene Morley, her second husband, was a painter connected to the New York School and it was through him that she developed her eye and love for painting. I often went with her to exhibitions at galleries and museums in New York and elsewhere over the 25 years I knew her. She went to the Lincoln School, a progressive...
Can you paint over satin paint with a flat paint?
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 paint the top coat with the new paint. I prefer the latter, as I always have buckets of cheap flat white leftover, which...
