IN INTRODUCTION TO PAINTING
The man in the street is often discouraged by poor results in undertaking a do-it-yourself paint job. The reason is that there is more to painting than just the paint itself. The quality of paint is critical, there is no such thing as cheap paint. If you have to paint 2 coats of poor quality paint as opposed to one coat of high quality, your coverage is 50% of the high quality paint or rather, the price of the poor quality paint is double that of the high quality. The situation is made worse by the fact that you will also pay double labour. Do-it-yourself painting can be rewarding if we keep the golden rules of a good pain job in mind.
