Choosing the Right Toolpainting
Since most ceiling is a large, flat surface, the most practical tool to paint a paint roller.You can, of course, paint the ceiling and a brush, but it will be
building tools on the market today there are many different kinds of them, making it difficult for new selection procedure.This mats, foam rollers and chenille.The price for them is not much different, which can be misleading about their supposedly identical qualities.But the difference is really very substantial.And select the roll will be a greater degree of influence on painting the ceiling.
Of the various varieties of rollers best result is achieved by using a roller with bristles (filaments).In this situation the foam is not fit because of the fact that it absorbs too much paint which accumulates at the ceiling surface, and because of this, and shows the bubbles.But velor tools take a little paint.
If you are going to paint a larger area, the important point is to choose the largest possible roll, since we are talking about the area of the ink surface.You can also spend the ceiling painting with latex paint spray gun, but today we talk about the most simple version.
Worth roller to select the best average of the fact that a large absorb too much ink and thereby causing a rather large coat of paint and a little nap, it is likely to leave no space dyed.The rougher the surface of the ceiling, the need to choose from a long nap roller to paint hid all invoice and fills the cavity.It is also recommended that you do not use rollers with a handle on the bolt or foam because they are easily damaged.
In addition, you should know how to pick up rollers experienced craftsmen, and how to distinguish quality from poor tool:
- When selecting roller is recommended to compress it in his hand with the quality cushion the contraction will not be deformed.
- Inspect seam roller: a quality product an explicit joint tissue does not, as such are able to leave the seams on the ceiling in the process of color bands.
- Check the strength of the villi, thus pulling them over: a quality roller will not give any stretch villi, while cheap imitations will be left in the hand noticeable tuft.
under your cushion to choose painter's plastic utensils, which is filled with paint and where further material is rolled out with a roller.Remember that when the roller dipping just a bucket of paint, you can not expect a beautifully painted ceiling!In order to use the roller from the floor without the use of scaffolding, it is necessary to purchase a special telescopic tube.With such a long pull-out handle you can reach at any desired location.
to access different corners and similar places on the corners, use a brush.For this type of work is used hammers finishing brush.In retail, there are special types of tools.These brushes do not leave behind a characteristic bands and provide substantially the same result as the roller.With regard to the width of the brush - it is better to buy a brush with a very small thickness (3 cm) and a tool bit wider (8 centimeters).
Removing the old finish from the ceiling surface
Before you spend painting the ceiling surface water-based paint, it is necessary to do the preparatory work and to protect against splashes and dirt floors, window sills, radiators and furniture (it is better to endure).You can cover them with plastic wrap, newspaper or cloth, fixing slabokleykoy tape.She also needed to glue perimeter wall, risers and gas heating pipes.This sticky paper tape can be easily removed, it leaves no traces of this.To remove it, you can, as soon as the paint thickens.
After that ceiling should be exempt from layers of old paint or whitewash.In order to get rid of lime or chalk whitewash, you must drench it with water using a paint roller, then scraped off while using a steel spatula or chisel.At the end of the ceiling clean sponge.
To update the ceiling, painted with latex paint, you need to spend more time on preparatory work.All this is due to the fact that the process of removing old paint is time-consuming work because the previous layer is substantially insoluble in water, and therefore with a ceiling of scouring fully impossible.
This work often involves the removal of loose paint with a spatula, as shown in the photo on the ceiling painting with latex paint.To facilitate this, not exactly a pleasant experience, you can use the following method.Previous coverage moisten with plenty of water, using a foam roller or spray bottle for water.This procedure must be repeated twice at intervals of twenty minutes.
Moisture should thoroughly soak the previous coat.Then you need to make a draft by opening all windows and doors.The swollen water layer forms a bulge of old latex paint, which remove with a spatula is not difficult.Such work is to be performed fairly quickly to the surface on which the work is carried out, has not had time to dry.Next you need to treat the rust spots and stains from the 5-percent solution of copper sulfate.
If your ceiling will be hard-retractable spot, you can apply the following composition: two or three-percent solution of hydrochloric acid (gently wipe the spot, trying not to fall on the skin).Another such known recipes: twenty parts of a solution of powdered lime which divorced one part varnish, dense solution of lime and water with the addition of industrial methylated spirit (50 ml).Any mixtures of the last two superimposed on contamination at 10 - 15 minutes.And all this is repeated until the complete removal of contamination.Typically, the two procedures is sufficient.
Align the ceiling before painting roller
After a complete cleansing of the ceiling surface is necessary to carry out its alignment.For this purpose, it would be the best thin-layer coating, which is characterized by good grip.It has excellent ductility and gives virtually flat surface, which is perfectly handled fine sandpaper.Using a spatula substance is applied to the ceiling.Quite often, the ceiling is leveled by applying it putty-whitewash on oil-based adhesive, which is distributed evenly over the surface with a brush, roller or spatula.
Remember that you must face it in the ceiling repaired all the cracks and crevices, reviewing video of the pre-painting the ceiling latex paint and fill them with specially prepared staff.For a complete filling gaps need to putty before applying them to expand.The next preparatory step is priming the surface, which is made of the same color.She applied a very thin layer, then allow the composition to dry thoroughly so as to prevent tearing putty.
Preparatory work before painting the ceiling
To start make a discovery of the paint prepared in accordance with the instructions dilute the paint to the desired thickness.Manufacturers often recommend adding a solution of about 5-10% water.If, nevertheless, the manufacturer does not recommend the paint can be thinned, it need only be stirred.This is easily done with a screwdriver on the electric mixer.For coloring the surface in one of the mixing layer will be sufficient.
can not be used for painting the ceiling vodoemulsionkoy roller, which you applied the primer, it is best to take a new or replace the old coat.Take the roller in hand and dunks it in a bowl of paint.It is important to note that, according to the technology of painting the ceiling latex paint, you do not have it completely lowered into the tank, but only to dip.Roller wet usually on one side and the edge that gets wet, it becomes hard.But you need to ensure that the entire circumference of the tool uniformly absorbed the paint.
To do this, you roll it on the trough roller (a special dish, which is sold in special painting kits), a grid or a blank sheet of hardboard, linoleum, but not on the ceiling surface.Few clutching the sheet roller, you can paint evenly soak the entire surface.Then you need to once again dip into the paint roller and roll out again.If suddenly you will not roll evenly wet, then to complete the repair will neprokrasy.After drying, they form the ill-fated spot, we talked about at the beginning.
sufficiently experienced painters do this automatically, but you certainly need to be trained.This work is not very difficult, but we must be careful here.You can work out for greater certainty in the area unprepared wall, a piece of drywall or any surface that is not sorry for experimental use.
vodoemulsionkoy Paint the ceiling with a roller
Once you unrolled cushion and thread are uniformly filled with paint, begin painting the ceiling latex paint.All work is best done in daylight hours, starting from a remote corner.The key is to remember that you need to paint the surface of the ceiling applied evenly, without tightening the whole process.Refinement of the ceiling even in a large room takes only 15-20 minutes.
Apply latex paint on the ceiling must be parallel to the stripes.Try to do the band, that have a width of nearly 50 centimeters.Paint should be lapped, each new phase in this case must be superimposed on the previous 8 - 10 centimeters.Thoroughly rub the paint and make sure that at the edge of the layer of paint dries not.
When working, do not release the roller from the surface, increasing the consumption of ink pressing force.Traces of the need to roll the edges of the roller in the perpendicular direction.If you plan to paint the ceiling of water-based paint in several layers, then remember that the last layer must be located in the direction of the windows, and the previous - in the perpendicular direction.
For painting the corners of the ceiling is necessary to use a brush.Dip it in paint on a third and press the edge of the banks surplus stock.Narrow strokes of paint, apply a strip around the perimeter of the ceiling, which has a width of close to 5 centimeters, and thoroughly mash.Obtain a thin and smooth layer that later merge with the fresh paint layer main surface.
painter painting the ceiling, looking at it from the right angle, and can not see the place where he had "walked" roll.His vision also fails to see how many times he touched the roll a certain area.The whole ceiling has acquired a uniform shade and moist so visually it seems that the whole plane is painted the same.This is where the hidden next bobble.Painters with extensive experience in this case, sometimes deviate towards the ceiling and look at a different angle, as are immediately visible neprokrasy.
When neprokrasy any, must be combated.It happens that the spots remain even after your efforts at resuscitation ceiling.Further work is useless and will only lead to a waste of material.This work needs to be redone.Correct errors can be the only way - the entire ceiling grind fine sandpaper.If you paint over only 1-2 layers, you will succeed.But if you have been a lot more roll, you have to grind and putty, and fresh paint.
Eliminate all drafts in the room, curtain the window so that you can avoid falling to the surface of the ceiling of direct sunlight.Do not use additional heating devices in order to accelerate the drying process, because the temperature in the room should fully comply with the instructions indicated on the label cans of latex paint.
And finally, remember that you should not only focus on low price ceiling painted with latex paint, you must strictly follow the technology!It is best to carry out the work in the afternoon in order to be able to repeat the process in the morning.Remember that the surface after each layer of paint must dry thoroughly.If the first layer does not allow to dry, then the second razmoknet and will raise the already existing paint.
