Best advice from Home Painters

Boiling the interior walls or from the house or apartment is not a simple but not too complicated task if you have little time, skill and courage. In order to do the job as best and easier as possible, it is important to respect a few steps. Here are some tips from professional home painters.

Preparing the materials

Get the necessary materials and tools: lime (paste or dust), color, primer, plaster, bark, brushes, spacing, paper tape, plastic foil.

Prepare the room

Prepare the room where you want to turn, releasing the space next to the walls. If you can release the whole room, you will work more easily. If this is not possible, you can place your furniture and other things in the middle of the room and cover them with a plastic wrap or something else. In this way you will avoid their mess. It’s much easier to prevent than to clean them then. It is also very important to cover the floor, door and window glasses, or other non-movable objects (sockets, switches, etc.). Besides the plastic wrap, we can also use newspapers or cartons to stick with a paper tape. Look at this.

Prepare the walls for boiling

Depending on the condition of the walls, we will have more or less work at this stage. First of all, clean the dust walls with a sweep and if there are cracks or pieces of plaster that are ready to fall, fall down with the gap. Then repair holes and cracks. Before plastering them with plaster, moisten with the primer to make a better connection with the wall. Ipsos is prepared in small quantities for a few minutes it hardens and can no longer be used. If the holes or cracks are not too large, there may also be a rebar on the repair.

After drying the repaired parts, we finished with abrasive paper. Also, we can smile all over the walls if we want to finish them more before the new look. Once you finish the walls, we apply the primer to the quartz. This has the role of better grasping the walls.


After the primer has dried, we can proceed to boiling. For a quality boiling, it is important to prepare the lime paste that will be applied to the walls. The lime paste, mixes well with water and then passes through a thick sieve (can also be used with used stocking stockings). This is how we avoid impurities that will be seen on the walls. The paste thus obtained is mixed with glue (about one kg of glue to 20 liters of lime paste diluted with boiling water) and color. The paste must be colored more intense than the final color we want to obtain because the drying process opens a lot. The water dilution of the lime paste must be suitable so that we can stretch it easily with the bitter. If the paste is too thick, it will stretch hard and will remain strings, and if it is too thin it will not cover the wall well and will have to make several rows of varnish. It is advisable to start baking the ceiling (if necessary) and then the walls starting from the top. To make it as easy as possible, simply insert the tip of the slurry into the lime paste, shake it a little to avoid leakage, and then apply it to the wall by moving it horizontally or vertically, starting from the top of the wall. Through narrow areas, besides sockets or heels or corners, the brush is used. The second layer is given only after the first coat has dried out. Usually two layers come in, but if you did not get the shade of color you wanted or did not cover the old varnish well, you can give it a layer but only after the other rows have dried out well. It is important to know that until the dirt does not dry well, it is seen through the previous appearance. Good luck with that.

If you want to paint a room yourself (either because you want to save money or to make it happen) you have to make sure from the beginning that the “land” was well prepared. The walls and the ceiling must be straight, sanded, without cracks, imperfections or holes. Besides, you have to spend special time for this (maybe a weekend) and some money. You need to buy your washable paint, a primer and plastic foil (for parquet protection). If you buy a quality paint, a box of 15 square meters comes in two packs of 8.5 liters. All this will cost you around 400 lei. Use a Long Tail Roller At the edges of the ceiling, using a 4-5 cm wide brush, draw a paint strip to prevent rollers from touching the walls. It is advisable to use a long-tail, possibly telescopic tail roller. Beginning from a corner, he paints a section of a square meter of the ceiling in zigzag, drawing the letter “W”.
