Glossing

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Whats the best and quickest way of removing gloss

 

Also, what would happen if i just painted a new layer of gloss on top of the old gloss?

 

Is there any hints or tips that people could tell me.

 

Kind regards Mark

Hi, giraffe76

 

If the existing paint is sound, all you need to do is make sure it's clean, and rub it down with 120 grade abrasive paper and dust off. Either apply an undercoat, then gloss, or a one coat gloss if you prefer. If there's a colour change, go for undercoat and gloss.

 

Removal of old paint is something to avoid, unless you really have to do it.

Thank you for your advice.. ive got lots of the abrasive paper you've mentioned so ill go ahead with the idea of  sanding it down,undercoating it and then gloss it again as its just white on white but i want it to look good and not have to do it again for quite sometime.
