Q) Is Water based paint any good, is it hardwearing?
A) Yes Water based paint is fantastic and is hardwearing but you must buy quality and do the preparation.

Q) Paint is Paint?
A) No there is a huge difference between specialized trade products and do it yourself budget ones.

Q) How do you cut real straight lines?
A) First buy the best synthetic 2/3inch brush you can afford and then it’s all down to practice, be patient and do not be tempted to use masking tape… it does not work.

Q) Can you paint melamine kitchen units?
A) Yes certainly, good de-grease and clean. Key all surfaces with light grade sandpaper/pad, dust off and then apply Zinsser Coverstain and away you go.

Q) Do I have to line my walls before the finish paper?
A) Yes certainly, lining paper gives a perfect surface for your finish paper and prevents seems opening.

Q) What wallpaper paste do I use?
A) Always check manufactures guidelines but in most cases ready mixed paste is the way to go, less water content which means the paper will do less stretching.
