Common Painting Mistakes To Avoid 

Common painting mistakes to avoid 

When you know how to avoid these faults, painting becomes a lot easier! They’re simple to make, but simple to avoid! So, let’s look at our selection and start painting your flawless backdrop

1.Picking the wrong color

Finishing a job just to realize you chose the wrong paint color is a disaster you can completely avoid. Be careful to test your color throughout the area you’ll be painting. The backdrop’s 12×12″ adhesive swatches are simple to stick and re-stick, making it possible to move them around without bothering to paint spots all over the place.

2.Testing without all lights

It is critical to check your paint color in several sections of the space at various times of the day to ensure that you’re satisfied with the atmosphere it creates. Paint may seem significantly different in various lighting, so this is essential to prevent being caught off guard as the sun sets and you find the hue is not what you expected. 

3.Not cleaning the baseboards

Cleaning down the walls and baseboards quickly before painting may have a significant impact. Any strange material left on your walls will get onto your painting supplies and spread over your wall. Taking a few minutes to wipe off the surface can save you from having hair and dust permanently adhered to your wall, something that no one wants.

4.Always use tape

Taping creates clean lines. Simply make sure you seal it tightly (we prefer to use a putty knife for just an extra-firm push down, but a butter knife can also work). While the paint is still wet, remove the painter’s tape.

5.Not applying plastic drop cloths

Use canvas drop cloths at all times! Plastic drop cloths are slippery and tend to remain wet for a prolonged period, so utilizing them could result in an unexpected floor mural of footprints all around the house. Canvas, unlike plastic, is not slick and absorbs splatters, and it is not plastic.

6.Being aware of the roller

Many do-it-yourself painters are too delicate with their rollers. Make sure it’s saturated but not leaking, and you’ll have enough paint to smoothly slide that roller. You shouldn’t have to use your muscles to get paint on your wall.
