- I used to have all white walls. Boring! One day I decided to add color to my life, and I started painting. I painted every interior room in my house, including the garage. I didn't know what I was doing at first, but I got the hang of it quite quickly. Here are some painting tips I learned in the process. When purchasing paint, get a semi-gloss if you have children or pets. Walls painted with semi gloss paint are easily washable. When purchasing supplies, you will need painter's tape. I like the extra wide. This ensures that I won't get any on the ceiling. Go with a more expensive roller. Believe me, there is a difference. Better rollers hold more paint and covers better. Now that you have a few painting tips to get you started, go color your world!
- You can go to any of those home building supply stores and find paint in almost every color imaginable. I was looking for paint for our son's room; he is getting older and wants to change the theme of his bedroom. I first found primer to cover up the dark blue that was in there from before. There were flat, semi-gloss and gloss paints to choose from and several texture options as well. Once we had our paint chosen I needed to get brushes, rollers, tape and plastic to protect his furniture while I painted.
- When you want to paint a picture you first need to choose what you would like to paint. I would recommend do something scenic like flowers or trees. Make sure you pick colors that will duplicate the image you want to pain. Next you will need to get an easel and several blank canvases. You will need to make sure and have at least 10 brushes; you don't want to mix colors. Make sure to have water for rinsing and a palate for doing combinations colors. Once you have completed your picture allow plenty of time for it to dry and apply a top coat to ensure longevity of the picture.
