It might not exactly be the Sistine Chapel in Rome, Italy, but there definitely is an art associated with painting. If you don’t know exactly just what you are doing, or how to do it properly, there are many problems that can commonly occur. If the surface of your home is too dirty, it is possible for the paint to peel. Paint also has the ability to not adhere to the layer of paint below it, and will shrink into individualized islands, which can cause what is referred to as “Alligatoring.” Painting, when not done properly, can also blister, wrinkle, or chalk. Running sags can also occur because of applying the paint improperly, like using too much paint on the brush or roller.
