Painters and decorators apply the paint with brushes, rollers or spray equipment. They can use emulsions, polishing materials or paints resistant to staying out in the open. Part of the job is to apply a single color of paint, but for other posts, you have to paint the edges of a different color or do a beautiful job like a mottled or veined.
Painters and decorators dedicate a large part of their time to the preparation of the surfaces they have to decorate.
Before starting work, they should:
- Cover furniture with care
- Remove old paint and paper with special liquid or with a specialized steam machine.
- Clean and sand surfaces.
- Repair cracks and cover holes with putty.
- Remove sand and dust from the surface to prepare it for new decoration.
Decorators use patterned papers and other types of wall coverings, such as fabrics. Each piece must be measured accurately before cutting and sticking with an adhesive. There are different techniques, such as mopping, that are used to create special effects.
Once the work is finished, they should thoroughly clean their brushes and equipment, and they should leave the client’s facilities clean and tidy.
Sometimes they show graphs and color samples to customers’ clients and inform them about the most suitable type of paint or coating.
