Top Secrets Only Professional Painters Know

If you are here right now, it’s quite obvious that you want to paint your house yourself or you just want to paint a wall in your office because you’d like that. Well, if that’s the case, then know that yes, you can paint a wall or a ceiling yourself, but before you do that, the wiser thing to do is to opt for some tips.

You don’t need to go to some special school to learn how to paint, and you don’t even need a degree for it. In fact, all you need is some professional guidance, some online Youtube videos, and of course, some practice. Once all of it is done, you can even call yourself a professional painter.

Hereby “painting” we aren’t only referring you to the one that’s done on walls and ceilings. In fact, we are also talking about painting a canvas. Honestly, when you learn how to play with colors and use your creative side, you can end up with some great paintings and drawings.

Speaking of which, here are some secrets only the professional painters know;

1- Choose the right brush
The very first thing you need to focus on is your brush that you are painting with. The brush is one of the most important tools, so don’t overlook the fact that you should get a quality one. Don’t worry about the price because a good quality brush won’t cost you more than $20 to $25. Just make sure to buy one from a quality place and make sure that the size is just right. This rule is for both kinds of paintings, the ones on a canvas and the ones on a wall too.

2- Use your creative side
There’s a creative side of every artist, and that’s what you need to open in order to paint the right thing the right way. For example, if you want to paint your wall and give it a cloudy look, you first need to jot down the things you need on a piece of paper and then imagine the final product first. It’s all about your imagination and before you dip the brush in some paint, just make sure to visualize your final product and then get started accordingly.

3- Avoiding drips
In case you are painting a wall, it’s imperative that you know how to avoid all those drips of paint. Especially if there’s some woodwork that you want to protect, masking tape is what you need to use. You just have to put masking tape on the part that you want to protect, and then once you are done painting, you can then take that tape off easily.

4- Sanding between the coats
Another great tip is to opt for hand-sanding. You see, no matter how careful you are, you will always make the mistake of putting a fresh coat of paint on ridges, bubbles, and sometimes dust. Now for a smooth topcoat, you are supposed to hand-sand all of the doors right after applying the primer. It might appear like a lot to you, but it isn’t it real, and it will just take you 5 to 10 minutes to do that.

These are some of the best secrets only professional painters know. The list goes on and on, but for now, we’ve jotted down the most important ones on your screen. Use these tips the next time you paint something and do let us know if they are useful or not. These tips are used by all the professional painters, so you should add them too in your to-do-list.
