How to start your painting career
If you’ve ever thought about giving painting a try, now is the time to give it a go. The good news is that painting doesn't have to be difficult. In fact, there are many things you can do before hand in order to make the process as painless as possible. From picking out paint colors that work well with one another through understanding the best brushes for each job, there are plenty of ways you can make your painting experience smooth and seamless.
Tools you will need
Before you start painting, it’s important that you have the right tools to complete the job. These are some common items that will be needed before and during your paint job: -Paint roller and pan -Paint trays -Tarps or newspaper to cover floors -Duct tape -Tape measure -Ladders (if needed) -Drop cloths to protect furniture from paint splatters -Paint brushes, sponges and rollers (if desired) - Check out our free template to read about the others
The Right Clothing
First things first, you’ll want to choose a type of paint that is suitable for the surface you’re painting. If it will be an oil-based paint, you’ll need to have latex or nitrile gloves, safety glasses, and an apron on hand. The same applies if you plan on using latex paint. For latex paints only, rubber gloves and stir sticks are needed. For acrylic paints you need a drop cloth or old sheeting to protect your floors before wiping down with water and soap after painting. Acrylic paints also require spray maskers and/or respirators if you're going to be doing more than just one room at a time. And finally, for any type of paint job: rollers, brushes (a few sizes), sponges (a few different shapes), painters tape or blue tape can all come in handy.
Want to know more?
Painting is one of the most time-consuming art forms. It often takes an artist weeks to complete a painting, and this process can vary depending on technique, color palette and the complexity of paint handling.
The amount of time spent by artists varies greatly; some painters spend months sketching out their paintings whereas others may take only minutes before putting brush to canvas or paper for a quick drawing in order capture what they see at that moment in front of them.
A great place to look for inspiration is on Pinterest! We find it so helpful because you can search for random or particular styles, colors and ideas. Pinterest is also a great way to get ideas based on your personal style. It’s easy to upload pictures of items you like and pin them to boards that represent rooms in your house or spaces you want to paint.
Paint is the most important decision you’ll make when painting a room, but what type of paint should you choose? There are so many options to choose from, which makes it hard to know where to start. When selecting paint, there are a few things to consider:
- The color you want to use.
- The feeling you want to create via your painting
- The light in the room the painting will hang.
- Your personal preference
There are three main types of brushes: natural-haired, synthetic, and pseudo. Natural-haired brushes have bristles made from animal hair such as sable or squirrel hair. They can paint a finer line since their hairs are thinner than the other two options available for painters.
Synthetic brushes use materials like nylon to create the brush hairs that can hold more water than natural-hair ones which makes them great for painting small details on larger canvas paintings.
The last option is called a "Pseudo." These professional quality tools mimic some of what you would get with an expensive traditional brush but they're easier to maintain cost less in comparison so it's perfect if you're just starting out!
