Part 4 Making Your Purchase
Water versus oil – When selecting an interior finish, try choosing a water-based enamel instead of an oil-based gloss paint. Water-based gloss enamels have less odor than conventional oil-based paints, they’re much easier to clean up, and they wear better over time.
Don’t cut corners on paint quality – High-quality paint performs better for a longer period of time. It’s less prone to yellow as it ages, goes on smoother, and won’t leave brush marks. It’s also easier to clean and is dirt resistant.
Purchase sample sizes – Paint a piece of scrap material such as cardboard, or even a portion of your wall, to see the effects of various light conditions.
