Whether you are a professional or a beginner in painting walls, knowing key techniques can help you make this job easier and obtain better results.
Before proceed to painting you should start by mask largest areas such as ceiling, walls, windows and furniture to protect them from any drips or marks from the paint.
Next, get rid of dirt and debris that will have an unsightly effect once fresh paint is applied on it.
To keep areas next to the wall clean and without any colour or paint splash you will want a masking tape that seal tightly to the surface and come off easily.
