Nitro Mors should work well. You'll just have to adjust the contact time to get the best results. If you find that the tile surfaces are a bit jaded, you could always use a specialist tile paint to revive them.

Paint flaked off. How to repaint?


Scrape off any loose paint. Sand it down, removing any rust. Use an enamel spray paint primer first. Then finish with a good quality exterior spray paint like rustoleum. Put on a few thin layers of paint allowing it to dry between coats.

I have painted the wallpaper in my kitchen about three times about two years ago I used Dulux matt dark streaks have appeared on the outside walls condensation marks? the paint looks chalky do you think...


There are 2 types of paint I do not like, Behr and Dulux. Buy Benjamin Moore for best results. Painting wallpaper is not advised, if it is not adhered on well, you can have trouble. Streaks could be condensation, especially in a bathroom, a kitchen can also be damp because of boiling pots. Warm moist air condenses on a cool object. It could be the wall paper is losing adhesion. Check to see if the paper moves a bit when pressed. Remedy is remove the wall paper and repaint. Get all the glue off, scrape it after soaking the wall. Sand the wall, wash with TSP, rinse with clean water. If you don't do this, you will get a lousy paint job. You would be best to prime then top coat. Alternately get a paint that is self priming. In a moist area use Zinnser

Glossy Accents when dry on art tiles dip in the middle


Sounds like you're describing what we usually call a 'fish eye' in the paint. It usually comes from a greasy film on the surface. Normally the surface would need to be cleaned/degreased and/or primed before painting. Not sure what was involved in your process of 'making art tiles' but if you painted them with an oil/alkyd/solvent based paint, it could create a 'fish eye' effect if the glossy accents you applied on top is latex/water-based.

Is there a way to cover glazed kitchen tiles with plaster and paint?


Yes... First you will need an orbital sanding machine, use 120 grade discs and sand all your glazed tiles, then clean everything down as clean as possible and your ready to paint over, or plaster first.

I painted a section of my garage floor with a cup of paint 1/4c oil base acrylic mixed with 3/4 c water base latex...will it ever dry thoroughly? it is drying slowly and is really sticky. will I just have...


did you ever try to mix water with oil? what was the result? are you sure that you can cross the street without adult holding your hand?

unfortunately you need to remove all that paint, just drop few shovels of fine sand over, and scrape it... sand will adhere to the tp surface of the pain and will allow you to scrape it. after you scrape it off, use any degreaser or similar product to wash reminder off, leave it for few weeks to dry through and then in small patch try if it would accept latex pain, roll it very, very thinly and leave overnight, if it is dry (solid dry) after 24hrs and do not peel off, you can then use this paint on the rest of your garage floor.

now, i would advice strongly against painting garage floor with any paint except concrete paint (they are usually water based with strongly alcalic ph), and after that use concrete seal. this should give you long lasting surface, sealed from oils, dust, water and whatever contaminant you can imagine in the garage.

Is there something I can buy that helps me get excess paint off the brush before I use it?


I just learned a really cool trick that doesn't cost you anything. Just take a large rubber band and wrap it from the bottom to the top of your paint can, going across the opening. Then you can scrape your brush on it after dipping so all the excess paint will fall right back in to the can.

Same problem with grill bubbling what to do 2004 niss murano


I've decided to "black" mine out with a high gloss black. First I'm going to take the grill off & see if I can use airplane paint remover on a small area to remove the coating that is bubbling.

If so, then i'll primer the surface & repaint it as is since it should be smooth after the remover works and I scrape it down and wash it clean.

You could then leave it once the clearcoat is removed, re-coat it with clearcoat, or paint it any color, even to match. Automotive spray paint is available at auto-parts stores for this type of material, just get the right can of spray paint.

If I find the paint remover won't work without hurting the actual grill, I'll use some fine grit sandpaper and prep the surface, then primer it and paint it high gloss black. Color choice is optional of course!


Maybe this will help.
