Presently, one thing you need to recollect about painting wood: Don’t overlook the groundwork! Sure, it’s enticing to do without the preliminary and start painting. It won’t have any effect, correct? Sorry, Charlie – it makes a major difference if you need your finish to be top quality. What’s the purpose of putting lots of time, exertion and cash into an undertaking just to undercut the quality by taking shortcuts on the last stride? I guess you get the point.
Something else about furniture painting: how to apply preliminary is of the utmost significance. Ensure the groundwork is thoroughly dry before applying the paint. But first….sand the wood with 320-grit sandpaper and wipe clean with a build-up free cloth. At that point, you can apply the paint. Try not to slosh it on – use long, smooth strokes with almost no paint on the brush.
When you’re finished furniture painting, how to tidy up is your subsequent stage. Oil-based can be tidied up with mineral spirits. For water-based paints use water (another reason I like water-based paints), and veneer can be tidied up with enamel more slender. Following this, clean your brushes and sprayers with soap and water to keep them soft. So there you have it – a beautifully painted venture and a spotless workshop. Life is great!
