Undercoat paint: It’s not just for walls

As someone interesting in decorating, you know that undercoat paint is very important. Not only does it give you a good, even surface that the paint will stick to, it also protects and seals the material you’re painting onto. What a lot of people don’t realise is that undercoats are not simply just for walls – they’re for any surface that you want to apply paint to, like: Woodwork. Whether it’s window and door frames or old furniture that you want to refurbish, you need an undercoat in order to get the perfect, flawless results that you’re hoping for. These primers are easy to apply and provide an excellent balance between filling, penetration and adhesion. Metalwork. Undercoat paint for metalwork is the best way to ensure that your final coat adheres to the surface. It also provides protection for the finished product, as it is anti-corrosive. This will ensure that your paint project will be durable and long lasting, giving you many more years of pleasure. Artwork. If you want to get the best results from your artist’s canvas, you need to make sure that the material is primed and ready to use by applying a thin coat of undercoat paint. This makes the canvas less absorbent and more adhesive, helping your paint not to leech into the fabric and spread through the fibres. Whatever your project, it’s a good idea to find out how undercoat paint can help you get the finished look that you’re striving for and protect all of your hard work. The last thing you want to do is end up with an unsatisfying result simply because you skipped a step in the preparatory stage.

Acrylic house paint means less mess, less smell and fantastic results!

Acrylic house paint is becoming an increasingly popular choice for home decorators, for several reasons. We want our houses to look their best and reflect our personalities, but we also want the job completed quickly and with minimum hassle. So why choose acrylic house paint? Low odour. This paint has lower odour than any other paint and this odour will disperse faster, so you can use newly painted rooms sooner. Low odour is especially characteristic of eco-friendly acrylic paints, so they are a great choice if paint odour really affects you. Faster drying time. Because these paints are water-based, they dry very quickly. This is especially great if you need to move into these rooms soon or if you need to apply multiple coats of a colour. Less mess. Acrylic house paint is very low mess, as it can be cleaned away using soap and water. This makes it the perfect choice for home DIY, as any messes can be easily wiped away. It’s still advisable to cover furniture and flooring however, as it will adhere to material and wood as soon as it dries. Wide variety of textures and effects. These paints are available in an incredible variety of colours, textures and effects, so there is no way that you won’t find the perfect product to get the look you want. From eggshell emulsions, matt and low sheen finishes to the popular suede effect paint; there is everything you could want and more. Available in eco-friendly ranges.
