The Basics of Painting

Updated: Feb 4, 2019

To paint, you must have paint, a brush or roller to spread the paint, and tools such as a scraper and putty knife for preparing the surface. However, it is easy to make mistakes choosing these items. These are some of the problems that you may encounter:

-The paint is the wrong type for the surface to be covered.

-Brushes or rollers that appear to be quality items in the store turn out to be rag mops when dipped in paint.

-The scrapers don't seem to scrape too well, and an ice cream stick may do a better job of smoothing the glazing compound than the putty knife you bought.


We recommend that you buy quality paintbrushes. A quality brush will help you to spread the paint smoothly and evenly over any surface with a minimum of muscle.Quality brushes are easy to clean, and you can use them for years which spreads your initial investment over a period of time.



The type of paint that you decide to use will determine the type of brush to buy. Natural bristle brushes can be used with oil-based alkyd paints, varnish, enamels, and shellac. Do not use natural bristles brushes in vinyl-acrylic or in any water-based paints; if you do, the bristles will become limp. Nylon bristles can be used in any type of paint, but they should not be used with varnish, enamels or shellac.
