Painted kitchens and culture – Martin Guest in Birmingham
Painters are people, you know! and we do have interests outside of microns and bristle technology. Here is an example from Martin Guest of painted kitchens and culture combined!
Work in progress
After masking up the kitchen, it was given a thorough degrease, and sanded thoroughly with a combination of dust extraction sanders – the Mirka Ceros and Festool Rotex.
All surfaces were then double checked and wiped over with a tack rag.
My painting and sanding process is set in stone, and no short cuts!
– One coat of oil-based Otex primer undercoat
– Sand with Ceros/Rotex.
– Second coat of Otex
– Hand sanded with Abranet 320
– One coat of Tikkurila Feelings
– Hand sanded with 320 grade Abranet
– Final coat of Feelings.
If you want to kit yourself out with the same tools I used, you need a DuPont Concave roller for oil-based Otex, and a Dulux Glosser Microfibre and * Pioneer Spirit 1.5″ oval brush in the water-borne Feelings paint.
The new colour was matched to F&B Dove Tale.
Wot about the culture bit?
I painted this kitchen for possibly my favourite ever clients – we talked about Jazz, Guitars, German Impressionist Movement, German pre War and Post War Politics, even some of the same rock concerts we had both been to before meeting… It was a joy to work for them.
Please share it on Twitter, Facebook, or print it out for reference. Thanks.
