As our #PaintTipWednesday continues we bring you the quote that inspired this weeks tip:
”Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars, but check when you say the paint is wet?” – unknown
And as many of us know, there isn’t enough time in the days to get everything done — especially waiting for paint to dry to get on with the next layer before putting your home back to functioning order . . .
So, if you’re looking for a way to quickly dry your paint, grab the hair dryer out of the bathroom closet and focus on the wet spots that are really drying too slowly.
It’s important to keep the end of the dryer about two feet away from the wall (or whichever wet surface) to keep the paint from forming bubbles. Moving the dryer slowly over the wet areas until the paint appears to be evenly dried.
*Of course, this technique works very well on smaller surfaces.
For those larger projects, it may be best to close off the room, turn up the heat and either open up the windows or add a moving fan to help the warm air circulate better.
