Tips for application
- When you are taking up a painting project, you need to prepare the area around you for this as well. Cover up the carpet, the floor, put a cover on your furniture and appliances. Use tarps rather than cotton covers.
- After you dip the brush into the primer, just wipe off the excess primer on the edges of the paint pail. Do not ever apply primer with a dripping brush.
- Start with the edges. Create a border around the corners and along the edges and then come to the center.
- Apply 2 coats of primer at least. This gives the most reliable result. For newly constructed ultra-luxurious property in Kolkata, one coat should be enough. Seasoned apartments require two coats.
After you finish priming and it gets dried up, sand your walls lightly and remove the excess dust later. This will bring a professional finish to your walls even though it is a DIY primer application endeavour. Now, your walls are ready to be painted.
