Fine “prep” dust irritates the lungs and skin. Protect yourself with the use of surgical-style dust masks. Cover as much of your body as possible with a long-sleeved shirt and a hat. Sanded areas should be brushed down and vacuumed immediately after prep work is completed. This keeps dust from spreading further, and contributes to a healthy work zone. Lingering dust also reduces the quality of a finish. LEAD Lead was a common component of most oil-based paints before laws eliminated it in the 1950s.

A few guidelines are helpful; use the following when making color choices and planning combinations. Warm colors greatly predominate over cool in decorating choices made by professional decorators and interior designers. A common example of this idea is linen white, which is warmed by a touch of yellow for painting trim work. The cool choice for trim would be a pure white, which is antiseptic, as the decorator might say. The majority of off-whites offered on paint charts are in the warm family.

The greater the sheen of the old paint finish, the more involved the preparation for the base coat. Don’t count on faux finishes to conceal bad surfaces. A lack of prep work is likely to accentuate defects. A bumpy, irregular ground will compromise the appearance of a glazed finish. Sanding with fine paper makes a tremendous improvement, and promotes adhesion of the paint layers. Polished Venetian plasters can bring to light old, poorly patched picture hook holes and irregular corner taping.
