Primer is the first step in any kind of painting. It laid a foundation of color on any kind of surface. So it is very important to know about the priming colors. Generally water-based color and oil-based color are suitable for the priming and it gives a perfect sleeper surface that helps to keep the next coat of color much flat and smooth. Latex type paint is mostly liked by the color lover to use at the early level of the painting. Here is no change at the initial level of the work because here at the initial level every type of painting need the same treatment for the surface so latex paint is the best choice for the early level of the surface to give a coat of paint.

Early Coat

The first coat is one of the most important levels of painting because here you may decide that the color you choose is suitable for your house or not, from here the main work of painting begins. Water-based two or one coat is enough for the initial coat of the surface. Here you should show a lot of artful mind for the great use of your surface.

Because flat is such a kind of quality painting that will give a perfect looking to your wall or ceiling and it can mix with your walls very nicely. This type of paint is perfect for the surface that has high moisture and a tendency. Flat type painting also suitable for the edge of any surface you can also use this type of painting by spraying. A little bit of water is best for this type of painting.

It is not easy to process this type of painting. But here you need to be a great artistic minded and you have to get up your artistic quality and you should use an acrylic type of painting in this type of coating. It is mostly seen in the metal surface that gets rust. So to prevent this type of rusting gloss and satin type of coating is important. Here you need to mix the color with a little bit of thinner or the vinyl.

Water-based and solvent base color:

Water-based colors are latex and acrylic colors and they are great for any surface. They made from pigment and they are environment friendly. The solvent-based colors include the oil-based color and they are made from the extracts of the tree and many other natural worlds.

Some surface is critical and rough so for this type of surface we need to do such kind of paint that is really very much different from other paint as a learner you need to know this type of color. For toilet or bathrooms or kitchen you have to select flat qualities paint that cannot give any chance for the fungus to grow. For the floor paint, you need to use a solvent and water-based color.
