Depending on the chosen paint, it is also determined how long the walls will look fresh and presentable. Therefore, it is necessary to distinguish several principles concerning the correct choice of paint and work with it:
The wallpaper for painting under painting consists of two layers of polyvinyl alcohol, between which is nonwoven. This makes it possible to use several color options.
Most often they are painted with a brush or roller on the wall after completely drying.
However, if you want to emphasize the texture, another option is used: the lower layer( purl) is stained and the paint is gradually absorbed by the non-woven fabric, and only then it is glued to the wall. The paint appears through the layer and protrudes from the outside.
An interesting effect of playing light and shadow can be achieved by applying two coats of paint of different shades of the same color. Then the volumetric drawing on the wall will seem more textured, and the color - more complex.
In addition to the actual paint and wallpaper, you must prepare all the tools in advance so as not to be distracted in the future. We will need:
Layout allows you to smoothly and accurately paste wallpaper. This is especially important for relief wallpapers with convex horizontal and vertical lines. With such wallpaper, any deviations from the vertical level will be noticeable. Directly it concerns the transitions to windows and doors.
In order to mark up, you will need a building level. It is necessary to measure the distance equal to the width of one strip of wallpaper from the corner of the wall and outline the horizontal line. In the gluing, you often need to do an overlap, so it is important to provide 15-20 cm. Avoid joints in the corner.
Special glue is required, prepared solely by instruction. Cooking time from 5 to 20 minutes. To apply glue, you need to use a roller, gradually spreading a uniform layer. Then proceed to gluing the roll.
You do not need to cut the roll into separate sheets. It is much more effective to stretch the roll and align along the marked line and the height on the wall. Glue it, straightening the irregularities and expelling air from under it, with a special spatula. Movements on the canvas should be directed from the center to the edges "top-down".
For docking you need a plastic spatula, which should be pressed between the baseboard and the wall. After that, the top slice is needed. You can use a wide putty spatula or ruler. The bend on the wallpaper should be as tight as possible under the plinth. Cut off the remainders with a blade. After cutting off the top, cut off the bottom glued part. Above the bottom, you can not really try, because, most often, at the bottom set the floor skirting, and it covers the shortcomings. The joints are smoothed with a spatula and a special roller.
Non-woven and vinyl wallpapers are suitable for painting the most, but this does not mean that other wallpaper can not be painted.
