Resene Popular Paint Systems – painting interior walls: training notes
This web page is an edited version of the Resene Best System Selling training notes provided to Resene staff and is provided to enable you to gain a greater understanding of the substrates and paint systems you may encounter in your decorating project. It is impossible to cover all decorating scenarios in a single document, so if you are in doubt about any aspect of your project please contact Resene for assistance.
Select the wall surface you will be painting from the list below to view how to prepare and finish the surface.
Note: Refer to the PDF flowchart for a visual of the steps below:
Using a soft cloth, wipe the walls down using Resene Interior Paintwork Cleaner or mild detergent and warm water
Fill all dents, defects and holes using Selleys Rapid Filla and lightly sand
Use Selleys No More Gaps on any cracks between the walls and skirtings and/or scotias
An average room will use about 4 litres of paint.
Hallways and stairwells are typically the worst for problems caused by critical light, especially stairwells as they often have high windows and horizontal joins in the wall linings.
There will often be dents and knocks caused by frequent use and the relatively confined spaces.
The actual surface area to be painted is often smaller than people initially believe as there are usually plenty of doors and in older houses, high skirting boards.
