To date, the best paint is an acrylic latex, which is based on acrylic resins.Its distinct advantage is the high strength and elasticity.A more affordable option appear vinilakrilovye, akrilosilikonovye and styrene acrylic compositions made on the basis of acrylic copolymers.
Modern acrylic paint is a plurality of types of compounds that differ in their texture and composition.There are paints that are intended for coloring ordinary dry rooms and paint for bathrooms with high moisture resistance properties.It is not recommended to use these substances for other purposes if the composition is intended for dry areas, it is necessary and use it there.
solution acrylic paint for the ceiling is most often sold in white color, but to achieve the desired color using special callers: depending on the level of saturation, it decided to add the required number of tubes with the mixture.Also on sale are brand acrylic paints with ready colors.
In terms of all the white acrylic paint can be divided into 3 conditional.It is a white, super white and milky white color.For painting the ceiling is better to get the most white paint.However, remember that some vendors at the bank with a milky-white paint to write "white", and the other on Superbelaya wrote that the painting - "white".
therefore ask the store to lift the lid a little seller in the bucket of paint and compare the color of the composition in a bucket with a piece of white paper, which is used for the printer that you want to take with you.If white will be similar, the similar substance suitable for painting the ceiling.When the seller is not going to meet you, then pre stipulate that you require the maximum whiteness, and that you return the jar, if it will not.
Acrylic ceiling after drying has a glossy or matte surface.But in choosing paint, remember that matte ceiling is a very important indicator along with its whiteness and is one of the criteria for its impeccable appearance.The more matte surface you get, the various defects are less visible on it, for example, various bumps or uneven application of layers of paint.
But if you want to color the ceiling, it is best to use a high-gloss paint.This composition is advisable to choose, if your ceiling is perfectly flat and has a large squaring.Also take this paint if non-residential premises.Among domestic and foreign manufacturers have high quality products company Dulux, Tikkurila, Shiro mat plus Innetak, Himaton, Himos, Svyatozar, Supermatt.
Before painting the ceiling with acrylic paint, close the plastic wrap or newspaper floors and all the furniture, not to dirty the surface during the preparation and painting of the ceiling.For this reason, unnecessary wear clothing, rubber gloves and a hat.
Then clean the ceiling of the old whitewash and dust.To do this periodically soaking in the warm clear water roller or brush, go over the entire area.The same procedure was clear it continue, until the water which falls roller or brush, no longer to thicken.Pay particular attention to seams with walls and ceiling corners, they should be washed with a brush.
If the ceiling or semi-gloss, the water is recommended to add a little detergent and wash process after the ceiling of sandpaper with grain number 8. If the surface there are depressions and cracks, then they need to be repaired, and open with a spatula, cleaned and smeared with putty.
Then you need to primed surface.The primer is needed to increase the adhesion of the ceiling to the future composition of the dye, durability of the coating and prevent the formation of mold and mildew.Remember, choose filler and primer is necessary so that they are fully compatible.Since you need to paint the ceiling has a sleek and smooth, make sure you strip the dried putty with sandpaper to create a rough surface texture.
Also before painting the surface with acrylic paint decorating the ceiling, do intermediate pre-prepared items.Sockets, moldings, borders and other items you can buy on the market or hardware store also has an opportunity to manufacture such decorations from scrap materials.
From that, rightly or wrongly prepared composition to obtain the desired density depends on the result of your work.Remember that thick paint is not able to hide the joints between the stripes painted.At this stage, dilute with water to the consistency of the paint, which is recommended by the manufacturer, and mix it with a mixer, as shown in the ceiling of the painting acrylic paint.
If the manufacturer recommends in the paint to add water as a rule, it will require no more than 5-10%.It happens that the paint does not require that it is diluted, then it says simply "mix", so just toss stuff with great care.If supposed painting surface in a single layer, then such agitation will suffice.Most considered the best one for dilution of paint to the state of the milk.
If the surface of the film there, then it should not be mixed with the rest of the paint, because the dried paint is not able to dissolve.As a result of this mixing is obtained with the composition of the lumps.Therefore, the film is recommended to carefully remove and drain the remaining material and then stirred.You can add additional components against the fungus, which are highly resistant to washing.
choosing than to paint the surface, you can stop your choice on a roller or brush.Each instrument has its own characteristics.Application brush is justified in small areas.On the ceiling of large area is better to use a roller.Let's see how to paint a ceiling acrylic paint with a roller and brush.
to paint does not drip down on the brush during operation, you can attach the handle to the foam cushion slightly below the wrist.Brush by staining should be kept under a slight angle or exactly perpendicular to the surface.Omitting the brush in the paint, make sure that the bristles are not concerned with the bottom, otherwise the tool is deformed.When removing it, tap on the edge of dishes, eliminating this way the excess paint from the bristles, but in any case it is impossible to wipe the brush on the container.Do
uniform waving to get a wide band, then these bands should be shade.Pen brush keep as close to the surface, and as it moves to increase the angle of inclination.
If you smoothness of the surface is important, try to put the finishing touches, crossing over them.Do you need two smears - first up, and the next - down, and recommended them to one site.When it is necessary to use a brush rotated periodically about an axis to prevent uneven wear of the bristles.It is also recommended in the process to squeeze the paint.
doing work breaks, do not leave to dry brush - it will be tough and will become unsuitable for further use.When you have finished painting the ceiling acrylic paint, wash the brush to her left dye composition.The most common use for these turpentine or mineral spirits.
choosing how roller to paint the ceiling, we must proceed from the room size, the size of the tool in any case it must comply with.Roller is easier to work if you pour acrylic paint in a special container.In such a pan pour the paint to about half.Roller during the dive must be completely impregnated.
After dipping tool to roll the container with paint on his broken surface - mesh, bath, or a piece of wallpaper or linoleum unnecessary.This will more evenly distribute the ink composition on the roller surface and have a uniform coating result.If you ignore it, it will form on the ceiling of the so-called "neprokrasy" that form on the surface of dried stains ugly.
paint process begins at a distance from the angle of approximately one meter.Getting started is distribution over the surface of a generous layer of paint.The roller should be on my own.When using roller smears locate cross each other, so the paint layer evenly distributed over the surface, and will not be visible traces roller.
Now let's look at how to paint the ceiling with acrylic paint.From this fact, with some effort, you click on the brush will depend on the evenness of the surface.Light pressure will provoke that the paint will go to narrow strips, the layer will be thicker and thus with gaps.A strong pressure will lead to the formation of water stains, but the resulting layers will be thinner.
If you paint the ceiling with acrylic paint for the first time, it is recommended to choose for themselves "testing ground" somewhere in the country.Use should be slack pressure, increasing it as waste ink.
better start from the corners, with a special brush to paint over a well and not miss not shaded areas.On the other hand, try to apply in one movement only one layer not overlap already shaded place.Otherwise, the ceiling any different color patches.It recommended move in one direction.
next layer is applied perpendicular to the first.And then it is recommended to smooth the paint and joints to perform this roller or brush without paint.Before painting the ceiling a second time to vote from another angle freshly painted surface.Immediately correct results are not dyed place, and if the paint has dried, then mark these places, and in the process of painting the next try in the first place to paint over these areas.
NOT, however, can not gloss over the more dense areas of paint, it will be worse.Repeated layer must be liquid, to get a little blur the first and at the same time to eliminate defects.But the place that double-dyed processed by almost dry roller.
After the first coat is wiser to wait until the first coat has dried.Carefully read the instructions, it shall specify the period that should be allowed between coats of paint.Each layer is applied only after the previous one is completely dry.
If you start a second layer applied on a damp surface, the first may be blurred.Re-painting again, and apply the latest towards the light, make sure that the joints to do.Ceiling rarely cover one layer of acrylic paint.The composition of foreign origin, apply two layers, but the domestic - only in three layers.
after applying acrylic paint on the ceiling, it is recommended to wait time (a few hours) and make sure the entire surface is covered with paint and has an even color.But it happens, and so that you did everything right, and as a result found that the spots were formed!In this case, do not try to paint a "hole", nothing happens.Arm fine sandpaper, better bar and grind the ceiling.
That's all, or spotting persist.This technique is considered to be effective if you are dealt a 1-2 layers.But if applied more layers, in which case the price of acrylic ceiling is doubled, because the output you will have only one: complete overhauls, which includes grinding, putty and paint directly to the new ceiling.
So you familiar with the advantages of acrylic paints.They vary by type of use.There are coloring compositions for conventional and premises where need high humidity.Do not use water-resistant paint, which is designed for wet areas, in dry rooms.This is primarily due to its high price.
