I just painted the basement steps with Valspar gloss paint. Now I want to cover the riser with border paper. Do I have to prep the newly painted wood?

bad move
steps covered with gloss paint are very slippery so you have introduced a slip hazaed into the house
repaint with a non slip paint or paint again a sprinkle fine san in the wet paint to introduce grip
No --- newly painted wood is already sealed

Clean well/ dry completely. Lightly sand with a fine grade of sandpaper, apply either Fusion" spray paint by Sherwin Williams (Krylon) . It does a great job sticking to plastic without primer, and also has a durable finish. The finish is glossy, but not with much depth. To achieve that deeper wet look, add a coat or two of Krylon's Gloss Polyurethane.

Can I add latex paint to epoxy paint on a floor?

You can, but it will not adhere well, and will not stand up to wear. Latex is designed for walls and does OK on some types of furniture (depends on material and finish), but not for floors. If it will be in a low traffic area, and you really want to try it, then clean the surface well, let it dry well, and do a small test patch, then give it a few weeks, but I would not count on it being durable under even moderate traffic, especially if the traffic is with something other than smooth soled shoes. Nice idea, though!

Why does my gloss paint keep splitting as i am applying it

Most likely you have some foreign material on the surface, Furniture wax, lemon oil are a few. You will need to wash them down with wax/polish remover, then with paint thinner. You could also try TSP.

What is the correct concistancy the paint needs to be mixed at for the dynatec psg 45 electric spray gun

It depends on 3 things.
What you are painting.
Whether you are applying latex, oil-base, or primer.
What size TIP you are using.
We use spray equipment and use size 17 and 19 for latex, and 11 for oil.
Double-check the size that came with your gun and look at tips at Home Depot.
Old tips wallow out and the spray pattern is irregular/uneven and the gun blows out too much paint and our material costs go up.

The manual says "dilute correspondingly"
Let's say you are spraying oil-base stain: I would NOT dillute this material.
Oil-base primer: 1 thinner to 4 paint
Latex primer: use a roller and brush so you have a good undercoat for the paint.
Oil-base paint: I would add 1/8 thinner with 1 paint, and be careful of runs
Latex stain: try 1 water to 4 stain
Cheap interior flat latex: 1 water to 4 paint
Latex semi-gloss interior: 1-1/8 to 4 paint and apply very thin coats and let dry between coats.
Cheap exterior flat latex: 1+ to 4 paint, and add more or less water as needed
Good exterior latex paint: use a roller and brush because the purpose of latex exterior pain is to apply heavy protective coat over outdoor materials ... dilluted exterior latex will not give sun and mildew protection.
We use heavy spray equipment and apply exterior latex straight form the can. It's the only way to give lasting job, unless you're doing a temporary playhouse.

The key to successful spraying is to strain your paint to get out the lump and clogs - BEFORE putting paint into the gun.
We always strain the paint unless it's a freshly opened can.
If can was opened yesterday, we strain it.
That because paint gets a dry film that will clog the sprayer.

First you need to mix your material, so you need a couple buckets.
Pour the paint and thinning material in 1 bucket, and then to mix, pour back and forth between two or three buckets. This action will mix the paint thoroughly and save you an hour of rotating a paint stir stick.
Next, you need to strain the paint.
Wash out a 5-gallon bucket.
Buy 5 gallon strainer that fits into bucket.
Pour material into bucket with strainer, lift strainer up and then grab end of strainer and squeeze out all the paint.
Immediately put lid over paint so no drying film will form.
Wash out strainer.
You're ready to put paint in spray gun.

I just wanted to know what the flat watch battery is for in the kid tough digital camera?

It uses a CR-2032 lithium button cell battery.

It's a 3 volt battery made by a variety of generic and name brand manufactures including Energizer and Duracell. You should have too much trouble finding one as they are fairly popular in electronic devices.
