Do I need to sand walls before painting?
While sanding is not required for every paint project, rough spots on walls, whether they have been previously painted or not, need to be sanded before they are painted to ensure the paint goes on smoothly.
Do you paint walls or trim first?
Pros usually follow a certain order when painting a room. They paint the trim first, then the ceiling, then the walls. That’s because it’s easier (and faster) to tape off the trim than to tape off the walls.
Is painting harder than drawing?
But does that mean that drawing is only a lesser skill in support of painting? No! It’s at least as hard as painting, and maybe even harder. Although color mixing and blending with paint is challenging, paint is also very forgiving.
