Question about paint.net Image Editing

1 Answer

I painted our great room in a Pittsburgh Paint color Bahia Grass 310-4. The paint has too much yellow for our room. What is the quickest, easiest, least expensive way to "deaden" the color; i.e., add more gray. A decorator suggested we add a coat of a sage green color, but we have a lot of area to paint, and I'd prefer something easier, like a glaze or faux paint.

Hi,

You can use faux painting methods such as "sponge painting" or "color washing" painting techniques.

Hope this helps.

Clean the surface well you want to paint. Buy proper color paint from any shop. Buy a good quality brush.

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 !!!

Tips for Picking Paint Colors: If you don’t think you’re a very creative person...



    Tips for Picking Paint Colors:


      If you don’t think you’re a very creative person but want to paint your house or even just a room, you might be feeling overwhelmed by the challenge of picking a color! Don’t panic – here are some top tips for helping you choose a great color scheme for your painting project.


      1.Use the color wheel. Don’t be afraid to take a look at the color wheel – it’s not just for decorators to show off to their customers with. You can ask someone in a paint shop to explain to you how primary, secondary and tertiary colors work together (or sometimes against each other).


      2.Try and decide what kind of ‘energy’ and brightness you want in the area you are painting. Is it a lounge that you want to be cosy? Or a bedroom that’s modern and bright? It really helps to visualize the end result.


      3.Are you hoping to your space look bigger or a large room cozier? If so, you can use color to help you. Small spaces will benefit from pale, cool colors and larger areas can be made to feel more intimate with warm, darker colors.


      4.Watch out for lighting issues. Natural daylight shows the color in its truest way whereas fluorescent lights cast more of a blue tone over the overall color. So make sure you pay attention to the lighting issues around the area you are painting.


      5.If you want to play it safe you can always go for neutral colors. These are colors that don’t stand out but you can use furniture and decorations to really add the splashes of color while keeping the walls in more subtle neutrals.


      Have fun! You can always paint really small areas to see how it looks on the wall. And try to be bold – you’ll probably be surprised with how good it looks.

Change color


You can paint it. Be sure to use a "kids room paint" since it will be less toxic. Use a good brush, not a roller for a smooth finish.
It looks like the finish is flat (not glossy), if so, you can paint right over i. If the finish is glossy sand it down just a but (to get the gloss off), especially in the areas that get a lot of use (like the top rails). Clean off the dust well (wipe down with mineral spirits for best results). and paint. Any general purpose paint will do well.

I painted light gray that now looks lavender on the wall...I am pretty sure it is the lighting in the room (CFL bulbs) as when I take the roller into another room with natural light or fluorescent lighting...


I painted for many years. And now work with photoshop each day.
The selected grey was probably in the blue family instead of yellow family. Most interior colors look better if they come from the warm yellow family, including greys.
There are greys for every color in the spectrum ... from yellow to red to blue. If you pick a grey with bit of red, it will start to look mauve. Orange and it will look brown. Blues inside the grey will turn purple real quick.
Moreover, all colors and finishes are contextual and pick up surrounding colors. Especially satin-or-shiny finishes, because they pick up local colors that change intended hue. For example blue drapes will turn white room bluish. If the house next door is red, and the light comes in window, it will turn white room into pink. Green leaves, and the light from window turn white room green. So when you pick a grey that has bit of blue, the color can change for many reasons beside light bulb. Each room is totally different.
Most folks pick colors by looking at color chip in the store, instead of painting a section of wall inside home. And most folks do not ask the paint store clerk which tints are in that particular color. Sometimes the black tint will turn some bases into a bluish hue.
Go back to paint store and get another grey color from the yellow spectrum.

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.

    I need paint codes to repair damaged fairing it is a turquoise and black model


    When I have re-painted my bike.. Ive taken in a part to the painter, or local shop. they scan the color and the paint code comes right up. works great, especially because over time the paint is not the same color anymore from the factory, and ...well... i like my bike in 1 color.

    otherwise the other easiest way is to call the kawi dealer shop. give them ur bike model, year and they can also give u the factory codes. good luck......PK

    The white plastic(?) full length door handles OUTSIDE the refrig are turning yellow on my white, side by side refrig. What can I purchase or use to re-whiten them and make them look clean and white again?


    That yellow coloring is most likely a result of the white paint coming off, and the yellow plastic color showing underneath. Other than painting them with a good paint, which you would have to ask a paint expert for the proper type, my suggestion is to replace the handles altogether.

    I want to know how to camouflage a jeep the best


    Knowing how to paint a Jeep in camo patterns means you can hide your Jeep in the woods, marshy areas or in open fields without it being easily seen. Using Mossy Oak's Shadow Grass pattern, paint your Jeep with natural-looking shadows and grass blades. The 3-D look of this pattern allows you to easily hide your Jeep from water fowl, doves, deer and big game.

    Things You'll Need:
    • Sandpaper (120 and 800 grit)
    • Wax and grease remover
    • Lint-free towel
    • Camo stencil
    • Masking tape
    • Masking paper
    • Respirator mask
    • Automotive primer
    • Automotive paint (black, gray, light tan and brown)
    • Automotive clear coat
    1. Sand the surface of the Jeep with 120-grit sandpaper until the surface is dull. You can use a dual-action sander for this step to speed the process. This removes the top clear coat and prepares the surface for primer. Primer won't stick to a shiny surface.
    2. Mask off areas of the Jeep that won't be painted, such as the windows, tires and passenger area of the Jeep. Wipe the surface with wax and grease remover and a lint-free towel.
    3. Spray primer on the Jeep in three thin coats. Allow each coat to dry completely. Once the primer is dry, use 800-grit sandpaper to sand the top layer of primer until smooth. This leaves a smooth surface for the paint. Wipe again with wax and grease remover and a lint-free towel.
    4. Paint a thin base coat of gray on the Jeep. Cover all of the primered areas on the Jeep so that no primer can be seen. Allow the paint to dry.
    5. Go over the Jeep with brown paint, spraying small areas of brown paint in no particular pattern. The finished effect should look like the Jeep is equally painted gray and tan. Hold the first stencil against the Jeep and use black paint to fill it in. Move the stencil over and paint again. Start at the front of the Jeep and work towards the rear.
    6. Move on to the next stencil and use light tan paint to spray the grass pattern. The grass should start at the bottom of the Jeep and reach up towards the top. For longer grass, don't spray the tops of the grass but instead move the pattern up, spray the stems longer and then spray the tops, making the grass stems long. Repeat this around the Jeep and across the hood. Go back over the grass stems with black paint, lightly spraying a few of the stems to give them a shadow look.
    7. Finish by spraying three coats of clear coat paint onto the painted areas of the Jeep. This protects the paint from UV rays and keep the camo pattern looking good.

    Tips & Warnings
    • Paint is best applied using a paint spray gun and air compressor, but canned spray paint will work.
    • Never sand or spray primer or paint without using a painter's respirator mask.

    Finding the correct paint


    Body shop class taught me to get the paint right, go to the local paint supplier for Autobody shops.
    A place like PPG will have a paint sample book to look up the color code that VW used for that year. It's the best way to get the paint right.

    You should be able to find a supplier in the Yellow Pages under Autobody Supplies.
