Emulsion paint and how to paint with it! Is it the best one | PaintOutlet.co.uk

Emulsion paint is a water-based paint. Many people find it pleasant to work with oil-based paints, as they produce a less powerful odour and are easier to clean. The process for painting a wall with emulsion paint is very similar to that for all paints, with only a few specific issues to be addressed.

Now here’s the perfect way to apply it!  

You can buy the emulsion paint at our store www.paintoutlet.co.uk.


 You will need a base coat of white emulsion paint along with a second coat of any colour you prefer. When you finish, only the second coat will be visible.

The white base coat should generally be a matte emulsion paint, although the second coat can be any of the three varieties.

Collect the appropriate application tools. 

Generally, it is best to paint the edges and corners around the corners of the wall using a paintbrush. However, you should usually paint the rest of the wall with a roller.

A 5cm (2 inches) brush will work well for painting the edges and corners on the sides of the wall.

It seems obvious but clear the area. Before painting, you should remove as many decorations and furniture as possible. Cover the floor with plastic sheeting to protect it from any falling emulsion pain

Now, clean the wall. Rub the wall down with warm water and mild detergent to remove any oil from the surface. Rinse with cold water and let the surface dry.

Then, strain and stir the paint. Emulsion paint that stays in the shops for a long time usually forms lumps and a film. It may be a good idea to strain these solid portions and mix the paint before use.

 The next step is to apply a base coat. Using a base coat will cover any colour or pattern that is currently on the wall. That way, you will prevent that original colour from being seen through the second final layer of paint.

Paint the joints before painting the larger surface. You should paint the edges and corners with emulsion paint around the wall joints using a brush. After you have covered the joints, switch to the roller and apply the emulsion paint over the rest of the wall.
