I have collected the most common questions and answered them here.
The following five questions are asked at least every day. So if you ask the question, don’t worry, you’re not alone!
In addition, you have come to the right place because Rock Painting 101 is about the beginner of the stone painting.
Where do you get all these stones?
While you may be grabbing the first cliffs on a walk in the neighborhood, you will soon discover that this is not a sustainable way to get rocks to paint.
I like to visit a local landscape architecture. They release me and pick out a bucket full of stones at a reasonable price. That way I can choose the shape and size I like!
The best thing I’m looking for is a nice smooth stone. For more information on landscape architectures, check out this post!
If your home or property has peeling paint on wood, concrete, steel, etc., you will know too good the frustration of having your home repaired to see that paint blowing and peeling again in a few short months.
This problem can have many causes and is usually not so easy to solve after it has occurred.
What are the reasons for color scaling? Sometimes blisters and shells or flakes paint due to insufficient cleaning or surface treatment before applying the paint. Perhaps the wrong primer is used, perhaps no primer is used. In fact, color applied to previously poorly prepared surfaces is sure to be loose and come off the substrate / remove.
Some of the most common substrates that throw away paint & # 39; in buildings are the following: concrete window frames, wall decorations, concrete panels, wooden window frames, fascia boards, gates, galvanized steel gates and railings, shop fronts, painted bricks, to name a few. Shiny surfaces such as aluminum, uPVC, glass, etc. are also well-known problems for color decolorization.
Let's remove paint from concrete first. Window frames and wall caps are two of the biggest precursors to this problem. One of the reasons for this is that the molded concrete parts are usually made in molds and these molds are normally sprayed with a molding oil to make it easier to remove the concrete from the molds after they have been set. When these concrete parts are installed, most people are not aware that there is oil that contaminates the pores of the concrete and continues to apply color.
Use or hardening of the problem. New prepared concrete should be thoroughly cleaned with a solvent to get rid of the oil and allowed to dry before applying the primer coating. When the surface is dry, a suitable primer should be applied to ensure adhesion to the concrete. The latest developments in this area are known as cover binding primers such as EB or Bonzit etc that you add to the first coating of any water-based color, saving an extra application. If concrete has already been painted and has a history of scaling, you should remove any traces of loose material with a brush or even a power tray used at a very sharp scraper & # 39; Angle.
In the case of wood as fasciate boards, etc., the rinsing problem usually arises due to insufficient priming in the first instance or sufficient time was not allowed on newly planned wood before painting. As with concrete above, remove any traces of blowing or peeling paint by grinding or removing chemicals if appropriate. When wood has been prepared, apply a good quality primer or if you have a good painter nearby you may be able to get one of these tubes into oil band primers that can save you additional time and effort.
If you need to paint shiny surfaces such as glass, tile, melamine, plastic etc. you have to take great care of yourself and choose a primer or a light surface treatment that is specially developed to take care of such surfaces.
