Paint problems from the Paint Quality Institute

Listed under Blog, paint, Painting Posted Oct 02 2008

I wanted to call this, “When it all goes horribly wrong!” but on reflection “Paint Problems” it is!

I have, of course, made countless mistakes over the years, (and tried not to repeat them). I could run off a few paint problems that saw my own work wrinkle, peel or fail miserably ahead of time, but rather than re-invent the wheel, I refer you to an excellent compendium of paint problems from the Paint Quality Institute. You get a photo of the problem, a description, and most importantly, a solution. Enjoy.

And if you have any horror stories of paint failures, please share!

We appreciate you taking the time to read this.
