How to remove paint drips and apply paintwork without streaks
In case streaks and streaks appear , usually the first thought may be to apply another coat of paint and varnish composition.
But this will not solve the problem, the defects will be even more noticeable and new ones can be added to them. It is best, of course, not to immediately allow their appearance.
Let's take a look at how to prevent problems such as paint drips and smudges, and if necessary, how to fix it.
There may be one reason, or several at a time.
When painting any surface, the following factors should be avoided:
The thicker the coating, the more difficult it is to spread it over the walls or ceiling. Before starting painting, the paint must be well diluted, and this is extremely important for the very first coat.
The amount of liquid can be more than 1/10 of the total volume of paint, and at the same time, more than 1/5 of the total volume should not be added.
And after perfect drying, the walls will be striped.
On wet surfaces, it can be difficult to see areas that are not fully painted. For this reason, consider installing a bright, but not dazzling lamp, or feel free to wear glasses.
If you apply the paint and varnish material on a plane in the form of stripes, then the borders after drying will be very noticeable, and the coating should be applied with W-shaped movements, which will be discussed in more detail later.
On the contrary, it will show "in all its glory."
Consider what to do if the problem has already appeared and something needs to be fixed urgently.
Avoid smudges and it is much easier than removing them afterwards. But still, no one is insured, and if this has already happened, you should not gasp and groan. You should arm yourself with patience and take on the correction.
Firstly, the area should be cleaned of the applied layer of paint and varnish using fine sandpaper or a special device. You should act very carefully so as not to remove the putty layer along with the paint and varnish material. Secondly, the cleaned area should be sanded until it is perfectly smooth. After that, the ceiling or wall should be wiped with a damp cloth and examined for items of possible flaws. If such are revealed, the surface should be applied with a finishing putty and made another sanding.
When the area becomes smooth and even, it needs to be primed. The primer should be applied in one layer, which should dry perfectly, and then an additional layer. After re-drying, it is important to evaluate the smoothness of the walls or ceiling, and if in doubt, repeat the primer procedure.
Paint without streaks and old stains is considered easier. Sometimes there are perennial stains that appear from old leaks.
No matter how much you carry out repair work, they will show through the painted layer again and again. To remove such unsympathetic places, they need to be perfectly cleaned and washed. Further, problem areas should be treated with any biocidal solution (means for removing mold and fungal colonies). You do not need to wash off the solution! Be sure to wait until it dries perfectly to make sure no re-cleaning is required. Further, it is important to apply a blocking primer to the areas.
It will be waterproof and will reliably protect walls and ceilings from smudges and stains. After drying, you can start painting.
Let's consider what will become the key to an excellent result:
In winter, the air in the room is very dry, which will speed up the drying process of the paint and varnish material. You simply will not have time to distribute it over the entire area, and in the cold season it will be more expedient to use air humidifiers.
The roller must not be dry. You need to dip it in paint and walk without pressure along the ribbed slope, and the paint will be distributed over the fur coat, and the excess will drain into the ditch.
Make a zigzag, distribute the covering over a square - go to the next one. Roll out the contours of the sections and move on. This will prevent paint drips. If you are painting walls that have previously been plastered, spread the paint in a vertical pattern. In log rooms, the paint will roll horizontally, that is, in the direction of the wood grain.
You already know how to remove paint drips, and now it remains to see what nuances should still be taken into account.
Smears most often appear when working with semi-gloss and glossy types of coatings.
If you are unsure of your own craftsmanship, apply matte paint. Imperfections are best seen on white, and to protect yourself from potential mishaps, you should not use a snow-white coating or add a little pigment to it.
On large areas, there are also more flaws, and the larger the surface to be treated, the more carefully you should approach the work. To paint the surface of the walls, take whatever paint you like best. For the ceiling, you should take the highest quality, and the ceiling from all planes will be the most fastidious, especially since you cannot cover flaws with paintings or pieces of furniture.
The main components of an excellent result are a well-prepared base, a coating that is not at all viscous and adherence to the rules of the staining technique. But at the same time, you should know that there is no ideal, which means that you should not squeeze all the strength out of yourself to achieve it.
