About Me

When testing out paint colors do not paint them on the walls!

Posted by Scott Martin on Saturday, April 16, 2016 Under: Painting Tips

When testing out a new paint color for a room in your home please do not paint them directly on the wall. Instead use a paintable sheet made just for testing sample colors. They come with instructions.
They are low tack peel and stick and easily removable and replaceable on other walls around your house to see what 
 the  the color will look like elsewhere. You really don't want big test spots on your wall for several reasons.
  1. They can be hard to get the final color to cover.
  2. You could leave brush marks that will need to be sanded smooth. Why make more work than needed. 
  3. You may have to wait awhile before you can paint and you don't want your room to look like a mess.
 They can be purchased at Amazon using the link below.
