Door painting

In order to quickly paint the entire surface of the door, use a brush with a width 7,5 cm. Start at the top corner on the hinge side and paint over squares of approx 60 cm2 ending with a square in the lower corner on the side of the handle.

Start painting each fragment with vertical brush strokes, then spread the paint with transverse movements, finally finish with light upward brush strokes. When painting the edges, try to avoid the formation of thickenings there, where possible, go beyond the edges with the brush. Narrow brush (5 cm) it is the best for this purpose.

Beware of a common mistake, by applying paint too thick to the top edge of the door and too thin on the sides. Work fast, to prevent the edges of the painted squares from drying out. The large and smooth surface of the smooth door requires particularly careful application and spreading of paint, because it highlights all stains and unevenness.

Locking the open door
Open the hinged door and lock it, pushing a wedge under them. Thanks to this, you will gain access to the outer edges of the door and avoid the unpleasant situation of locking the door after removing the handle. Make sure the paint is completely dry before closing the door again, to prevent the door from sticking to the frame.

Painting panels and edges
We always paint the panels from top to bottom. Avoid stains, resulting from "overload" of the brush. Of all types of paint, it is the oil paint that most often creates stains. For painting the edges (above) take a small brush, this way you will avoid the formation of lumps. The invisible upper edge of the door does not require painting. Before applying a new layer, smooth the previous one with sandpaper, to increase its grip.
