4. Can You Apply Latex over Oil Paint?
The Key to painting latex paint over oil paint is to sand the surface very well, that means every little nook and cranny. Not only that, you need to make sure that the surface is not greasy or oily. To guarantee adhesion it may be best to apply a primer first, and then 2 top coats of 100% acrylic latex finish. If you have any questions about this process please do not hesitate to call.
5. Why do painters wear white?
Nobody really know for sure, but it is speculated that we wear white because it’s a sign of cleanliness, the less paint we have on clothes might signify how good we are at our trade. Wearing “whites” also distinguishes us from other trades, as painters we are proud of our craft, and we definitely like to stand out in the mix of so many other trades.
