If anyone know's anything about painting they will tell you that red is the most difficult colour to cover on walls. Here are some important tips when using the colour red...

- Tint your primer grey and the same shade as the type of red you are using. This helps the red pigment seem like it is filling in as a solid even color and not a transparent mess. This is the most important tip of them all.

- Use a quality brush and sleve for best coverage.

- Make sure to use a flat finished paint rather than a semi-gloss or eggshell.

Following these tips will make sure your red covers successfully in two even coats. For more information check out our website at
