Painting- do I paint oil based paint over water based or water based over oil?


rule of thumb is that, given proper surface preparation, for exterior use you can apply quality latex paints over oil-based, but not the reverse. However, if you have many layers of oil based paint, stick to using oil on oil.

Has mold on it in places. What to use to wash off?


since you posted it wrong section auto mechanics and techs can pretty much answer all questions thrown at us so you can use a watered down bleach solution ---power washer with a mold solution or water hose with a deck--mold solution which you can buy at most hardware / home improvement stores

What is an alcali


Nothing to do with cameras....... Alcali is most probably incorrect spelling for alkali - a mixture of soluble salts found in arid soils and some bodies of water; detrimental to agriculture.

If its related to paints, this is possibly the best advice:
  • Allow fresh masonry surfaces to cure for at least 30 days before painting. If this is not possible, use a high-quality, alkali-resistant primer.
  • Test alkalinity of the surface with phenolphthalein or a pH pencil.
  • Paint with a high-quality water-based paint and avoid colours that are alkali-sensitive.

If 3 people can paint 2 fences in 4 days how long will it take 2 people to paint one fence?


You must assume they have the same working capacity.
  • 3 people can paint 2 fences in 4 days.
  • The same 3 people can paint 1 fence in half that time or in 4/2=2 days.
  • It will take one person 3 times as much as it takes 3 people, so 3*2=6 days
  • 1 person paints a fence in 3 days.
  • It will take 2 people one half the time it takes 1 person to paint a fence, that means 6 days/2=3 days.

I am an experienced spray painter, but I have been out of the game for a few years and things have changed in that time. I am familier with most types of paint, including synthetic, cellulose, 2 pack and...


water base paints are out there but as far i know i think you should error on the safe side and use a resporator with most all paints........ as far as i know they havent fully improved waterbase paints to the point that they hold up on metal correct me if i am wrong when the car companys use them for all cars then i will! ( base coat clear coat is the best so long as you follow the mixtures as directed on the cans ( call some paint suppliers , savage dupont ect they can guide you on most types of paints)

I own this 0525151 and am trying to spray a latex fence stain. worked for a little while, then nothing. I tried thinning the paint with water and a paint thinner product recommended by the Home Depot...


We used paint sprayers every day for years.

Tips come in different sizes. With oil base paints we used the small tip like a 4-11. With latex we used bigger tips, like a 5-17. Really big spray rigs use 5-19. Tip size matters.

Another important thing is to strain the paint. The paint store sells 5-gallon-size strainers. Put the strainer over a 5-gallon bucket. Pour the paint into the bucket. Lift the strainer up, and finally grab it with your hands and squeeze the paint out. Do this in the grass and then wash out the strainer for next time. Put a lid over the paint bucket so the paint stays wet and clean.

We used high pressure sprayers, and then wrapped a filter right over the intake... but the tips would still clog. We had guns with reversible tips ... rotate the tip around, fire the gun, and the clog was gone.

Maybe your tip is getting clogged real fast. When that happens, the gun simply doesn't shoot. The old guns, we had to take them apart every time the tip clogged. I don't know about the tip on your gun.

Your paint sprayer is probably not very high pressure, which means it would clog easily if stuff was in the paint ... and latex is thick and sticky and it gets crusty as it dries.

Suggestion: I would ask Sherwin Williams about the tip. See if they sell parts or tips at the Home Depot or Sherwin Williams.

Also you can clean the gun out with lacquer thinner. See if the lacquer thinner will pass through the gun. I would take it apart and clean everything with a toothbrush, and soak it in lacquer thinner. It might work, but the home-depot-home-owner-spray-equipment is generally not made for more than a few jobs. Especially the wagner-diaphragm-type guns.

Something else you might consider for a cedar-type picket fence. A roller. Sherwin Williams sells thick shaggy roller covers that hold a lot of paint. The little cheap roller covers can't paint a fence or anything else because they're too thin. We almost never sprayed a fence. We'd put masonite along the bottom and then just threw paint up with a roller [slap it on as the customers used to claim] >>> for cedar pickets, thin the paint with water (1 gallon water per 5 of paint) so it flows into the holes and gaps. Roll the fence, and then go back and touch up with a brush or the sprayer. A paint job on a fence always looks better the next day [unlike some things] so sometimes it's best to wait 1 day before doing the brush work.

Porter cable spray painter PSH1 it says what you can spray with it and I want to spray water base paint can I do it with this painter it is new and I didn't relize it was onl for laciur paint thank you...


Be sure to filter the paint you are trying to use so that you aren't dealing with large lumps of paint. You will need to experiment with hose pressure to get proper spray quality, and set the mixture control for a fairly fine mist as the paint is likely to be more fluid. Fan control is set so that you don't get an unpainted space in the middle of the paint swath. Make sure to wash the gun thoroughly after painting. If you are doing a lot of painting, expect some nozzle wear over time as the water base paint is somewhat gritty. Don't forget to trigger 'off' before the end of each stroke and trigger 'on' after starting the return stroke to keep running at a minimum. Good luck!
