Frequently asked questions about interior painting
- If the paint dries too quickly, lower the temperature and/or increase humidity. Wipe the surface to be painted with a damp sponge or cloth. To increase air humidity, hang laundry to dry indoors or spray water into the air. Please note that excessive humidity prevents the paint from drying normally.
- Make tests to determine the correct thickness of the coat of paint. Paint that is too thin tends to run and dry too quickly before levelling out. On the other hand, if you apply the paint too thickly or unevenly, it will run. Spread a generous coat of paint using criss-cross brush strokes to ensure that the paint is spread in an evenly thick layer all over the surface. Then finish the coat immediately using parallel strokes.
- If you apply Feelings Furniture Paint or use other waterborne furniture paints or lacquers, use a brush made of man-made materials with soft hair tips. This ensures a smoother finish.
We have a lacquered panel ceiling in the living room. Over time, it has darkened and turned yellow. The room looks pretty gloomy, and I would like to have a transparent light-coloured ceiling that leaves the wooden surface visible. Can it be done?
