Painting tips & tricks of the day


Masking knots before painting
Knots in finished wood will appear sooner or later after painting. Before painting, seal the knots with a lacquer. It is the only liquid sealant that will efficiently seal in knot resin, without discoloring the finishing paint.

Choosing the right paint texture
Each paint finish has its own properties. The more matte the finish, the more it hides imperfections and uneven reflections, but it's less washable. The glossier the finish, the more washable it is, but also the more sensitive to imperfections and it will mask less efficiently. In order: glossy, semi-gloss, pearl, eggshell, satin, matte. Semi-gloss is best for hall walls and for windows and frames; use matte on ceilings and satin and pearl for the rest. Kitchens, bathrooms and basements have their own antifungal paints.
