How do a i paint a interior door

Preparation is a large percentage of the job beginning with has the door been painted before? If so how many times?

If the paint is chipped around the edges the best plan is to remove all the paint until the door is bare wood and a blowlamp and scraper or paint stripper is what gets the job done. If the old paint is particularly loose a Skarsten scraper is what you need to make a good beginning.

If the door has been painted only once or twice before and painted particularly well it will need sanding to remove runs, brush marks and any remaining gloss and to thin the paint thickness close to the edges. Defects will need filling and then more sanding with progressively finer abrasive paper.

Once the door is flat and smooth it should be wiped over with a damp cloth to remove all dust and the surrounding area cleaned. Visible knots should be sealed with shellac or knotting and bare wood primed with a thin coat of wood primer and when dry denibbed.

Next is a light coat of the correct undercoat and further denibbing/light sanding followed by another clean and a further (full) coat of undercoat and more denibbing, etc.

When applying paint it is important to work systematically and to thoroughly brush each new brush full of paint in every direction and blend it into the last painted area in order to obtain a uniform paint thickness and then finish each area with long even strokes in the same direction.
Modern paints dry or become tacky very quickly and so each fresh brush full should be laid without delay close to a wet edge and then blended into it.

The final coat or top coat needs special care because mistakes are difficult to correct without applying a complete new coat.

I hope this helps - it is a much abbreviated description of what usually takes a long time; spread over several days or even a week when allowing proper drying times between coats of paint.

How to paint kitchen

Clean the surface well you want to paint. Buy proper color paint from any shop. Buy a good quality brush.
Thin the paint using some turpentine.
Dip the brush in paint, and paint wherever you want.
You can even paint yourself to disguise an other.
Never paint to some parts of your body. I think; you can understand, what I meant by this sentence !!!

Best way to fill in a deep scratch on car door caused by what I assume was a key...?

At Canadian tire they sell paint that comes in a pen type canister. has a ball point end and a brush. use the ball point end and just trace the scrtch with the paint pen. (exact match paint) this will hide the scratch well, but for best results. do a few coats. letting it dry between each time. which doesn't take long. and it will built the paint up flush to the original paint. when its dry. wash and wax over the surface.

Do I need special brushes for watercolors?

Yes you do, watercolor brushes have more hairs that are longer which help the brush to absorb more paint unlike other paint brushes.

How to clean them

Clean your air tower fan by using small paint brush and wet rag(s). Turn off power and unplug, then open the fan by using screw driver either flat or crossed type. Eliminate dust and dirt using paint brush and rub it with wet rags. When disassembling put screws in box and be observant so that you'll able to assemble it later. Do not wipe motor with wet rags only the propeller, front back cover and so on.
Good luck.

Touch up paint

if your after touch up paint, it depends on the paint on your heater some of them are enamel, powdercoatings, or a high temp paint and you must know what type of paint is on your heater first as they can react badly if you mix paints. If it is a powder coating or a enamel paint you could probably get touch up from a near by wholesaler if heat paint we get from a company in australia as where our shoowroom is but its called stove bright and you can find it on the internet and coast about $25au, and it comes in a spray pack or tin to brush on, you can also get high temp black paint from most auto repair shops or wholesalers so it really depends on your heaters paint job if you don't know what type of paint try manufacturer

Does this dental air compressor have a oil pressure safety switch?if so, where is it located? can I find a wiring diagram

Air compressors are designed to operate many different tools. The value of a commercial air compressor is many times greater than the purchase price because of the amount of work a single air compressor can perform. Dental air compressors are some of the most reliable because of the high-quality air they supply and precision tools they operate. As a result, dental air compressors can be adapted for a number of different tasks, including artistic air brush painting
1.Disconnect the air compressor from the dental tool air supply. Pressure and air supply rate-of-flow settings are different for air brush painting than for air delivery for dental tools.
2.Reset the air pressure on the tank to a range between 15 and 20 pounds per square inch (psi). The exact operating pressure for airbrush painting will vary, depending on the application and the type of paint used.
3.Reconnect an air-supply hose and a siphon style airbrush to the compressor.
4.Fill the airbrush's paint vile with lacquer-based paints. Test the air brush and paint performance on a piece of cardboard, or scrap piece of cloth
material before beginning the painting project. Every time the air compressor is connected to airbrush, or a new paint color is loaded into the brush, a short test spray should be performed. After each test adjust the air volume, and the paint flow in the gun to achieve the desired results8_16_2012_1_32_17_am.jpg
