Primer is a preparatory

The coating materials put before painting. Priming ensures better adhesion of paint to the surface, increases paint
durability, and provide additional protection for the painted materials.
 It can also be used to block and seal stains, or
to hide a color that is to be painted over. Emulsion paint is a water-based paint used for painting interior or exterior
surfaces. Varnish and shellac provide a protective coating without changing the color. They are paints without
pigment.  Wood stain is a type of paint that is very that is, low in viscosity, and formulated so that the pigment
penetrates the surface rather than remaining in a film on top of the surface. Stain is predominantly pigment or dye
and solvent with little binder, designed primarily to add color without providing a surface coating.  Lacquer is usually a
fast-drying solvent-based paint or varnish that produces an especially hard, durable finish. An enamel paint is a paint
that dries to an especially hard, usually glossy, finish. Enamel paints sometimes contain glass powder or tiny metal
flake fragments instead of the color pigments found in standard oil-based paints. Enamel paint is sometimes mixed
with varnish or urethane to increase shine as well as assist its hardening process.  A glaze is an additive used with
paint to slow drying time and increase translucency, as in faux painting and Art Painting.  

A roof coating is a fluid applied membrane which has elastic properties that allows it to stretch and return to their
original shape without damage. It provides UV protection to polyurethane foam and is widely used as part of a roof
restoration system.  Finger paint is a kind of paint intended to be applied with the fingers; it typically comes in pots
and is used by small children, though it has very occasionally been used by adults either to teach art to children, or
for their own independent use.  Inks are similar to paints, except they are typically made using finely ground pigments
or dyes, and are designed so as not to leave a thick film of binder. Titanium dioxide is extensively used for both
house paint and artist's paint, because it is permanent and has good covering power. Titanium dioxide pigment
accounts for the largest use of the element. Titanium paint is an excellent reflector of infrared, and is extensively used
in solar observatories where heat causes poor seeing conditions.  Anti-graffiti coatings are used to defeat the
marking of surfaces by graffiti vandals. There are two categories, sacrificial and non-bonding. Sacrificial coatings are
clear coatings that allow the removal of graffiti, usually by pressure washing the surface with high-pressure water,
removing the graffiti, and the coating (hence, sacrificed). They must be re-applied afterward for continued protection.
This is most commonly used on natural-looking masonry surfaces, such as statuary and marble walls, and on rougher
surfaces that are difficult to clean. Non-bonding coatings are clear, high-performance coatings, usually catalyzed
polyurethane's, that allow the graffiti very little to bond to. After the graffiti is discovered, it can be removed with the
use of a solvent wash, without damaging the underlying substrate or protective coating. These work best when used
on smoother surfaces, and especially over other painted surfaces, including murals. Anti-climb paint is a non-drying
paint that appears normal while still being extremely slippery. It is usually used on drainpipes and ledges to deter
burglars and vandals from climbing them, and is found in many public places. When a person attempts to climb
objects coated with the paint, it rubs off onto the climber, as well as making it hard for them to climb.
In the application of liquid paint can be spread by direct application using brushes, paint rollers, blades, other
instruments (Note: some paints are toxic and can cause death or permanent disability). The coils are usually handle
that allows rods of different lengths that can be connected to allow the painting at different heights. Generally, roller
application takes two coats of flat color. Using a thicker nap roller to apply paint on uneven surfaces. The edges are
often willing bent brush.

After liquid paint is applied, there is a range where it can be mixed with other regions painted. The opening time of an
oil or emulsion paint based alkyd can be expanded by adding white spirit, similar glycols such as Dowanol ™
(propylene glycol ether) or commercial XR open time. It can also facilitate the mixing of different layers of paint to be
aesthetically pleasing. Latex emulsions Acrylic require the use of desiccants suitable for water-based coatings. Interior
exterior house painters tends to separate when stored, the resolution of the heaviest components at the bottom. It
must be mixed before use with a flat wooden stick or a paint mixture, pour back and forth between two containers is
also a manual mixing. Paint stores have machines for mixing the paint by shaking it vigorously in the box for a few

Water-based paints tend to be safer and easier to clean after use - the brushes and rollers can be cleaned with soap
and water, it is difficult to close the paint store and paint for a long period of time. Head shop for a good seal in a dry
place. Protect from freezing.

Professional painters require detailed knowledge of tools, including Sanders, scrapers, sprayers, brushes, rollers,
ladders, scaffolding, and more than paint to complete the job properly. Lot of preparation must be considered before
simply applying paint. For example, tape and cloth, the size of brushes or rollers, material types or dimensions of
rollers or brushes (there are different sizes or types of brushes and rollers for different paints), wood (including
sanding without scratching the wood grain), the amount of paint, the amount of paint layers, the amount of primer,
types of primers and paints, certain cereals and pieces of sandpaper, wallpaper Recall finish cutting (the act of
painting with a brush on the outline of baseboard, moldings and other finishing), and nail hole filling techniques just to
name a few.

When to use Primers

Typically, a primer is needed to paint any kind of porous materials such as concrete and especially wood (see
description below). Priming is mandatory if the computer is not water-resistant paint is exposed to the elements.
Primer plaster (gypsum) is also a common practice in building a new house or building, and sealing the wall and to
prevent mildew. The boot is also a good idea if the machine is dirty and for some reason can not be cleaned or paint
colors of light in dark colors available. Primer and paint form a chemical reaction that allows the paint to adhere much
better than if the paint is used alone.

Priming ensures better adhesion of paint to the surface, increases paint durability, and provide additional protection for
the painted materials. The proper disposal of paint is a challenge. Do not buy extra paint. Find a suitable recycled paint
before buying more. Try to find recycled uses left-over paint.

Similar chemistry of paints can be mixed to make a more uniform color. Old paints can be a good coat of primer or
intermediate layer. If you need painting, small amounts of water to the paint can be dried completely, leaving the lid
until it solidifies and then disposed as normal waste. But the oil-based paint must be treated as hazardous waste and
disposed of according to local regulations.
