In this day and age, house painting has gone well beyond a brush and a bucket. While the old standbys are still handy, painting techniques are now involved enough to mimic wood, stone, weathering, textures, and patterns at a fraction of the cost of the real thing.
At the same time, painting technique is not all pomp and circumstance. Rather it is as much about sanding, patching, and rolling as it is about marbling, sponging or stenciling. This section of our CalFinder Home Improvement Library will address the many painting techniques, from the art of glazing to the function of sandpaper. We hope you will learn and enjoy. Also check out our many painting ideas and pictures including exterior paint, interior painting, bathrooms, kitchens and more.
