This is perhaps the most economical type of
painting available in the Indian market today. It can be classified as
a "Whitewash" job. This term is probably deep rooted in our vocabulary
as home owners whitewash their homes prior to renting it out and
occupants insist on a periodic whitewash from the home owners ! The
major constituents of distemper are chalk, lime, water and some
coloring agents if necessary. Distemper is a water based paint
This type of paint is also water based and
provides a rich and Matt finish to interior walls. The differentiating
factor of emulsion paints is its acrylic quality. Its composition
imparts excellent durability to the painted surface and gives the walls
a just painted look. It washable and most stains can be removed easily
by wiping with a cloth dipped in a mild soap solution. The paint film
is also fungus and mildew resistant.
Solvent based paints(Lustre/Enamel)
Solvent based paints - Lustre paints, Enamel
paints and oil paints all come under the category of solvent based
paints. They cannot be pre-mixed with water. Oil based paints take a
longer time to dry and often produce strong odors which are irritating
and sometimes even toxic in nature. The advantage with these paints is
that they really last long and produce rich and desiring effects on the
Functional paints are not just decorative paints, they have specific
functions like eliminating insects, bacteria, fungus or dust mites.
Functional paints have an in-built, safe and non-toxic mechanism to

| Post subject: VENETIAN PLASTER|
Venetian plaster is a decorative painting technique used to create an
effected stuccoed surface. Invented by specialized craftsmen, the
plaster finish originated in ancient Rome and has been used throughout
the centuries to modern times. The term Venetian plaster derives from
the use of this finish in the palaces of 15th-century Venice.
Materials and Tools:
paint: satin latex base coat ; highlight paint
painter's blue tape
wide, flat putty knife
Apply the base coat and let dry. Tape-off the ceiling, baseboards and
any side walls that won't be covered in the plaster so they stay clean
and don't forget a drop cloth.
2. Use the flat putty knife to
scoop up some of the mixture and slather it on the wall in small areas,
spreading it to cover as much area as possible. It's best to work it in
a couple of directions to create a random texture.
3. Once the
first coat is dry, which may take several hours, apply a second coat in
the same manner to fill in and even out some of the missed areas. Let
4. The last coat is a mixture of half Venetian plaster and
half paint added to lighten the plaster for highlights. Scoop up
less of the mixture and add a few strokes where desired for color
variances to give the technique some extra pizzazz. Let dry.
