If you love Christmas time and are looking for painting tips to get you in the festive mood, Warrior Paints has some handy advice you should read before embarking on your painting project! When you’ve got leftover house paint there are plenty of ways to put it to creative use, such as painting Christmas tree ornaments, painting greeting cards for family and friends, painting mugs, bowls, jars and much more. A homemade painted gift is a meaningful way to show someone you care about them.

Are you tackling a bigger paint job this Christmas, such as painting your walls or the exterior of your house? Here are some painting tips for you:

  • Make sure you properly prepare for your paint job. This includes removing everything from the room, cleaning the walls and removing any existing loose powdery and peeling paint.
  • If you’re painting a light coloured paint onto dark walls, first paint the walls with a stain blocker as this eliminates bleed through of the darker colour and requires fewer coats of paint.
  • Use the correct type of paintbrush or roller. If you aren’t sure, the expert team at Warrior Paints will be happy to assist you in choosing the right tools!
  • Protect your floors by putting down plastic and put painter’s tape around the edges.
