How to strip a textrued glass of paint?

I have an old piece of glass which is textured with little protrusions on one side. It has been painted over about 5 times. I used a paint stripper and removed most layers of paint, but am having trouble getting in between the little nooks of the texture. I tried using a scraper and a couple of brushes, even steel wool, but nothing seems to work so well.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to make this process smoother?

I would try a liquid paint remover. You brush it on and let it set and wipe it off. It's typically used on furniture. Lowe's, Target etc. will have it.

Paint will not dry

Could be the paint you're using was old, sat around too long and was not properly stirred, before applying? or did you apply multiple coats without waiting enough or too long in between? You will have to strip all the paint off using a chemical paint stripper. Then wash off all the stripped with the proper solvent, then wash off the solvent. Make sure the wood is totally clean. Then sand lightly to open the pours of the wood. Apply one coat of primer, let dry, then apply as many coats of paint as you want, just make sure its dry between each coat, etc..

Fixing textured (not popcorn) drywall ceiling

If you've got a house built in the 90's, you may well have a textured drywall ceiling with a pattern on it. The most common pattern is a blossom texture with patterns of repeating ridges form circles.

The problem comes when you have to repair this ceiling. Knowing how to duplicate the texture is the problem.

Here are the steps to do this:

Replace/repair drywall ceiling until the surface is paint ready, but do not paint. Sand texture off of some of the adjoining ceiling to avoid a visible border.

Make sure you have a drop cloth down!!! This might drip.

Mix drywall mud down to the consistence of pancake batter. You want it stiff enough not to drip, but pliable enough to texture. The mixture should just barely be pourable.

Pour into a paint roller pan, and using a long nap roller with the lint removed (use masking tape) roll the joint compound onto the repaired area.

Allow to set for a few moments to make sure it won't drip Now get out your stomping (yeah, that's what they call it) tool, and texture the ceiling.

You can buy brushes to "stomp" your ceiling at many paint stores, but they aren't cheap. Instead, you can do what most drywall guys do, and make your own. Go to the store and get an old fashioned string mop. When selecting the mop, look at the head. Some have a rectangular bar holding the strings in place, and some have a round tab, about the size of a quarter. You want the one with the round tab, and get one with strings, not cloth strips.

When you get it home, hold the mop up to the ceiling, and note how long the strings need to be to create the same size pattern. Cut your strings about two inches longer, since the whole string does not hit the ceiling.

Trim the strings to the correct length, then soak the mop for 24 hours to limber them up.

Now back to the stomping. Once you have your drywall mud applied, all you have to do is hold the mop over your head, upside down, straight up, with the strings hanging uniformly around the sides. The mop should be damp, but not wet. You can add a bit of drywall mud to it first if you wish, I do not.

Hold the mop about eight inches below your drywall, and starting at an edge where you can judge where to match the old pattern, "stomp" the mop into the wet mud, just like you were stomping your foot. Immediately pull the mop back, and you should have the same pattern as your ceiling.

Continue stomping until you've covered the ceiling. Afterward, you can wash the mop, and keep it for later if you think you will need it.

After stomping, let it dry for at least two days before painting.
When you buy your drywall joint compound, look at the prices. You can often get a five gallon bucked for only a couple of dollars more than a gallon. (I always buy pre-mixed, it works great). To preserve the mud you didn't use, after you're done with it, mix a teaspoon of bleach into a cup of water. Level the surface of the mud in the bucket, then pour a layer of the bleach/water mix on top. This will keep the mud from drying or molding.

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.

Hole in kitchen wall. How do I fix it?

First I would cut around the hole using a dry wall knife -I would make it a square. Then get a piece of wood ( 2" high and Then measure the length of the hole if it is 9" then you would need the wood piece to be 11" long.) Insert the wood piece inside the wall (hold on to it) and then drill using dry wall screws from the out side wall into the wood piece you installed. Then cut a piece of dry wall the size of the square you made and insert into the wall then screw into wood piece. Then take some joint compound and spread light over insert dry wall spreading on the old dry wall and let dry and then sand so it is flush with wall.

Someone scratched the right side of my car with a piece of glass how can I get that out without having to get it painted

Hi Suzette, If the paint has been damaged through to the metal, there are no short cuts. If it is the top layer of paint which has been damaged there is a Turtle Wax product that may help you. In the event of needing to 'touch up' paint from your dealer. There should be a color code on one of the tags under the hood (bonnet), which will give a matched color. Regards John

2nd coat of spraying on the paint looks like it's textured. it's a damp day - could that be why?

Well, could be. You did not specify what type of paint you are spraying onto what type of material....

Are you filtering your paint? do you have an air line evaporator? The secret to drying compressed air is to COOL it first, often with long air lines (or refrigeration unit), then the vapor separator. If the air is still hot, vapor will not be separated.

and by textured, do you mean raised bumps or valleys?

I have a Royal KMM typewriter that my parents purchased for me when I was in high school. It was used when they bought it. I am 64 years old so that tells you how long I've had it. It has been sitting in...

It has no real value any way. A really beautiful typewriter. He is right about the paint. I have not been able to find wrinkle paint for over 20 twenty years and have painted more than 200 old typewriters with regular paint with no problems. We overhaul these vintage typewriters for about $ 100.00 in our area.
