This is the place to discuss any interior or exterior decorating projects falling under this category. Wall-papering Preparing surfaces, cross-lining, and hanging all types of wallcovering from vinyls to hand prints and Lincrusta. Specific reviews of tools should be posted under Tools! Exteriors The same as interior painting but different challenges, different thinking required. From preparation of woodwork, metalwork and render, through to finishing coats. Spraying Discuss HVLP, airless, Air Assisted Airless... where you use them, with what and why. Painting Discuss every which way for painting walls, ceilings and woodwork. Preparing all and any surface; priming, sealing, undercoats, topcoats using brushes, rollers, pads, spray kit.
