HOW TO PREPARE BARE WOOD

Plan ahead when painting wood; it may need several coats of oil-based paint. Lightly sand any rough areas and wipe away the dust with a lint-free cloth dampened in turpentine. Seal knots with shellac or knotting. When thy, apply a layer of primer. When that dries, sand lightly, and then apply a couple of layers of undercoat.

 

 

HOW TO PAINT BARE WOOD

Wood is usually painted with oil-based paint. This gives off toxic fumes, so always keep the room well ventilated. When the undercoat is dry, sand and wipe. Apply one or two topcoats for a good finish.

 

 

1. Hold a small brush like a pen and apply vertical, parallel lines of paint. Work in sections 1 sq ft (30 sq cm).

 

 

2. Without reloading the brush with paint, join the vertical lines by brushing across them with horizontal strokes.

 

 

3. Finish with more vertical strokes. Reload the brush before starting on the next area. Begin by the wet edge.
