How to paint walls in eight steps
This article needs more work - to help develop this article, click 'Edit this article' above.
First prepare the materials you need according to the product description and the different proportions of the preparation. Then gather the tools. Commonly used tools for wall painting include colour separation paper, kraft paper, wall painting rollers, brushes, putty knives, sandpaper and so on.
 1. Basic treatment
When brushing the interface agent, it must be brushed evenly. It is possible to enhance the adhesion to the base layer, avoid the hollowing and shelling of the plaster layer. This replaces the manual chiseling process and can save time and effort.
Uneven walls should be leveled with plaster so that the error of the wall does not exceed 3 mm. If the angles are not straight, plaster should be applied and a ruler should be used to make sure it is straight.
 5. Polish
This is a very critical step in the process. Try to use finer sandpaper. If the sandpaper is too thick, it will leave deep marks. After polishing, be sure to clean the wall thoroughly to avoid too much dust, which will have an impact on the adhesion of the paint.
 6. Apply primer
The primer must be evenly painted to ensure that every part of the wall is primed. If the has a large amount of paint, it is best to add a little more water to the primer to ensure that the entire surface is covered.
 7. Look for blemishes
After the putty is polished, there will be some blemishes. Under normal circumstances, it may be difficult to see clearly. It will be obvious only after brushing the paint once. At this time, it is necessary to check for repairs. See if the polish is even and the primer is applied across the entire surface.
