Painting tips & tricks of
Drying paint and the temperature
Paint in a ventilated and temperate space. When temperatures
are between 10C and 32C there's no risk, although 15c to 22C
is ideal. Latex paint will dry in a few hours at this
temperature. Oil-based paints will dry more rapidly in a
warm, dry environment.
preparation before painting
When we paint wood, we're decorating it, but we can also
protect it for good if the surface is prepared properly. New
wood must be sanded along the grain. Painted or stained wood
as well, unless you strip it down to its bare surface.
Pores, screw and nail holes can be filled with plastic wood
or joint compound, according to the case. Remove all
accessories to minimize trimming. Paint over knots with
orange shellac to hide them forever. Finally, be sure that
the wood is dry and clean.
