Color makes it possible to play with volumes and atmospheres. For an aesthetic and homogeneous rendering, the application must be done on a clean, dry and healthy support.
Paint in color
- The color alone creates the atmosphere of a room.
- The choice of tint – warm (red, yellow …) and / or cold (green, blue …) – is enough to change the perception of space.
- It can also be applied as a discrete touch on a single wall to enhance an architectural element or play contrasts with the furniture.
- It finally makes it possible to conceal the irregularities of the walls.
- Be careful however to chromatic harmonies.
- Ready to use, murals come in an almost unlimited choice of shades, thanks to the tinting machines available in all major DIY stores.
Prepare the wall
- Lightly sand the surface (medium-grit sandpaper), to remove the rough edges.
- Dust and fill the cracks with the filler if necessary.
- Paint adheres better on clean support: clean the walls with a damp sponge soaked in Saint Marc’s laundry diluted in water.
- Rinse with clear water.
- After drying, apply masking tape to mark the surfaces to be painted (here, skirting boards and cornices remain as they are).
- Be careful to be careful at the junctions.
Paint the edge and angles of the wall
After mixing well in the jar, pour a little paint into a truck and, using a rechampir brush, start applying it to the bottom of the walls, just above the skirting boards.
Proceed in the same way for the surfaces to be painted at the cornices.
