Can you use ultra white paint as a primer on a wall before painting it?


Not recommended, especially if the ultra white paint is anything but "flat." Primer is designed specifically to adhere to other paints. Look into KILZ primer (if it is available where you are), as I have found it to provide excellent coverage for color changes.

Tip

Painting patterns using stencils


Painting a pattern on your wall can be very difficult if you want all the shapes to be the same size and level. But just like when you were little and had letter or shape stencils to help you draw perfect drawings, you can make stencils yourself for what ever it is that you want to paint on the wall.

Using a sheet of cardboard or a contact sheet draw and cut out the shape that you want to paint. If you want to make a pattern that goes all the way around the room then you should make two or three stencils so you can level them.

To use the stencils first prepare the wall you want to paint, you want to paint the base color before you use the stencil because painting around your design can be very challenging. When the wall is dry take your stencil and using painters tape, tape the stencil to the wall so it doesn't move. Making sure that you don't over load the paintbrush paint inside the stencil trying to be careful around the edges. When you finish filling the stencil carefully lift it off, make sure that there isn't any paint on the underside of the stencil because if there is and its wet it will leave unwanted marks on the wall.

Repeat the process of taping, painting and lifting until you have finished painting your pattern on the wall. When you are finished step back and enjoy your handiwork.

How do I calculate the amount of paint needed for walls in a 12 foot by 16 foot room with 8 foot ceilings?


Ceiling paint estimator

Use the following formula to estimate the amount of ceiling paint you need. Double the result if the ceiling requires two coats.
1. Multiply the length of the ceiling times its width to find its area.
14 × 20 = 280 square feet
2. Divide that number by 350 (the estimated square feet covered per gallon) to figure out how many gallons of paint you need.
280 ÷ 350 = .8
For this example, you want to buy 1 gallon of ceiling paint for a single coat.

Wall paint estimator

Use the following formula to estimate the amount of wall paint you need. Double the result if the walls require two coats.

Paint bubbling and peeling soon after painting a newly rendered wall........how do we fix it?


Sorry for the paint peeling and bubbles. It's not the drywall tape that has bubbles... right? Paint can react like this when it is applied over a sanded wall that has not been cleaned and still has a layer of drywall dust on it. When primer is applied to the wall, it is best to use something to push the paint on the surface to combine the dust with the paint. This could be done using a paint pad but should be more than just rolled on. The paint needs to mix with the dust and stir it in with the paint so the paint get under the dust. You might try thinning the paint a little to allow for better attraction to the wall. So now how do you repair this? By scraping the loose paint off and starting with a new coat. You know. it could also just be bad paint.

A newly painted wall looks splochy, shinny in some spots and dull in others.


I would hope that you had the paint mixed well before putting it on and that the entire wall was done in one event. Also it would be of help to have primed the existing paint first.

How could i put a glitters with my wall at my facebook


  • SPRAY CLEAR GLITTER ON DRY WALLS -- Go to your local craft store and pick up a couple cans of spray glitter. You want a clear base so you can keep your current wall color. Look for a spray that says something like clear glitter finish or clear glitter sealer. Then just spray your walls with the clear glitter spray.

  • PAINT YOUR WALLS WITH GLITTER SPRAY PAINT -- If you want to change the color of your walls you can spray paint them with colored glitter spray paint so you get the painting and glitter done in one easy step. However, spray paint can be expensive and you may find it is difficult to get a nice even coat of paint. So this method would be good for a small room or an accent wall.

  • PAINT YOUR WALLS THEN ADD GLITTER -- This is the cheapest way to get the glittery look you want. Buy your wall paint in the color of your choice. Then buy tubes of glitter in the craft section. As you paint your walls, do one small section at a time. Then pour out a bit of glitter on a paper plate and gently blow on the glitter so it blows onto the freshly painted wall. The glitter will stick to the wet paint. Then move on to the next section and do the same thing! If you are applying two coats of paint to your walls add the glitter to the second coat.
