I can tell you that I have mixed latex paint with Portland cement(Mortar mix). I put the slurry into a spray hopper and sprayed my concrete block wall. I wanted the wall to match the house in color and finish. It worked perfectly. I did this in 2008, and the wall looks as good today as the first day I sprayed it. The wall has an adobe finish, and the grout ...

Carpets and paints can be made from a variety of materials. Water might clean it up. Paint thinners might dissolve the carpet (depending on the carpet). You could try isopropyl alcohol without much risk. But I would start by testing some carpet fibers (cut a few fibers off with some scissors) in a dish of paint thinner before testing thinner on the carpet. ...

DO NOT ever use elastomeric paint on stucco.....Stucco needs to breathe.... in truth stucco should never be "painted" at all. It needs to be lime washed or mineral coated. This actually bonds chemically to the stone and will breathe, not mold/mildew because of the alkalinity, and fill in small cracks. Minerals can last 50+ years, Lime wash less. Also you ...

I'd go ahead and paint it as-is, just as I'd paint my living room after a year, or ten, without any special prep. Kitchens with evidence of grease should probably be cleaned locally. I've never had paint fall off yet after dozens of personal and professional projects over several decades. Modern paints are very good.

TLDR: the information you quoted specifies a brand of paint, not a color. Even if it did, it wouldn't be available or wouldn't match. Better off taking a 1" square sample to the store - they can match it. Here's the problem. Pigments are not stable. Any paint formula is expressed in ratios of pigments. Pigments disappear, because they outlawed a toxic ...

2 part epoxy paints are the toughest for garage floors. The floor paint in 1 can really has not held up well for those I know that have used it. The 1 part stuff pulls up where the tires sit. I had a 3 bay shop with a 33' motor home in 1 bay and 3500 diesel truck in another and the floor looked great after 8-10 years when I sold the place. some of the big ...

Mayonnaise! My son has bright blonde hair. While we were spray painting beds he got bright pink spray paint in his hair. We tried everything and nothing made the paint come out. I put some mayo on his hair and he jumped in the shower and scrubbed it out. All the paint gone!

Found this site while looking for the RGB values of an Olympic paint. Irregardless of all the free guesses given above, for Sherwin Williams you can find the RGB values easily. Here are most if not all of them. ...

This sounds like a good project for a modern paint stripper. Get a sample size of SoyGel (or CitriStrip or whatever), and cover the whole surface with the goop. Then cover the gel with strips of plastic wrap, and leave it overnight. In the morning, you'll be able to remove it easily with a scraping tool; it just melts off. Repeat as needed if you have ...
