6. Painting over high-gloss paint without sanding. New paint will not easily adhere to a glossy surface, so sand the wall first for optimum coverage.
7. Plunging your paint brush too deeply into the paint. One- third to one-half of the length of the bristles will supply the optimum amount of paint without causing a mess. And your
brush will be easier to clean when you are finished.
8. Painting aimlessly. Apply some method to your painting technique. Start at the ceiling and work your way downward, catching your drips as you go.
9. Painting over wallpaper with a water based paint. Yes! You can paint over wallpaper, but only with an oil-based paint. The water in other paints can reactivate the glue in the
wallpaper, and cause it to peel away from the wall.
10. Skipping clean-up. Sure you’re tired, but don’t stop now. Protect your investment in those high quality brushes and rollers by cleaning them immediately, wrapping them in
plastic or aluminum foil, and storing them away in their original packaging to retain their original shape. And any paint drips and splatters will be more easily dealt with before the
paint dries completely, or cures.
