Advice comes with every can usually. if you're unsure what type of paint to and do read the labels before you buy or use Paint manufacturers know what their products will or won't do and they go to some lengths to inform the buyer of the performance qualities of their product.

To calculate multiply the width of each wall by the height and the width of the ceiling by it's length. Then add up the figures. For you have a room measuring 12 feet in by 13 feet in length by 8 feet in height. Figure the square footage this way. 2 walls of 12 feet by 8 feet equals 2 x 96 sq feet equals 192 sq ft 2 walls of 13 ieet by 8 feet equals 2 x 104 sq. feet equals 208 sq ft 1 ceiling of 13 feet by 12 156 sq ft Total surface to be 556 sq ft Most cans of paint will indicate how many square feet the contents will cover There's little quite as frustrating as not having enough paint to finish a wall and then discovering the paint shop is closed for the holiday weekend And by the if you buy custom blended paint you should buy all you need at one time for consistent color matching Before even opening the paint fill the wall cracks the hairline with filler Use a putty knife or a thumb for this job Large cracks will need special patching plaster Read the instructions on the filler package to make sure you are doing the job properly Let the filler dry and sandpaper it smooth before applying a primer paint or an undercoating.

Masking tape can be used to cover surfaces of electrical fixtures you're either afraid to touch or can't move Masking tape may also be used to cover trim areas where a different color paint or varnish is to be used Masking tape is good insurance for even careful painters some painters rub protective cream on their hands and arms before starting. The film of cream makes it easier to get off paint that drips onto skin. This tip applies to the man of the house as well as to the housewife Cover the furniture in the room the with old sheets or newspapers to protect against spillage. A wooden paddle can be used to stir the paint to blend in the color pigments The coloring usually needs a stir during the painting job because it tends to sink to the bottom of the can Do a good job of blending before and during the otherwise you might get a wall of different shades.
