1 :: Explain me how many coats of paint do you prefer applying to any job for perfection?

I always give 2 coats, if the walls have a feature wall or required a lot of filling I usually do 3 or 4 coats.

If you count painting and decorating a small wall for a month, then ihve been a painter for a month.

3 :: Explain me what is more important, the money or the job?

Well, one thing is connected with the other. I always like to fine the balance between bouth and feel satisfaction of a well done job.

4 :: Tell me do you have your own hand tools?

Yes I have all my own tools and whites.

5 :: Do you know what are the major duties of a painter?

The first thing that a painter needs to do is confer with clients to determine their specific painting requirements. Discussing colors, shades and design are all part of this work. Once a color, shade and design is decided on, it is the job of a painter to acquire all the supplies and plan how to go about the painting job so that deadlines can be met.

6 :: Tell me what particular skills do someone need to work as a painter?

Color vision is perhaps the most important skill that a painter needs. Great attention to detail, organization and the will to satisfy customers come close too. Knowledge of applying primers and sealers and performing buffing duties are also important.

7 :: Tell me what instruments of trade are you most comfortable using?

Apart from paintbrushes, roller covers and sandpaper, I am able to use scrapers, joint knives and wire brushes.

8 :: I know you are primarily a self-taught painter, do you ever regret not getting formal training?

No regrets! I’m not sure really what formal training could’ve done for me that I couldn’t achieve with practice and patience. I’ve often heard negative reviews about formal training for the simple reason that formally trained painters end up painting like their teachers want them too, not in their own way and style. I’m a big believer in that there isn’t any ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ way to do art. This should not be confused with ‘good’ and ‘bad’ art however.

9 :: What are your favorite colors to paint with?

Generally I love bright colours, colours that stand out. However if you were to measure my favorite by the volume I use, then white would be on top, with black a distant second. Blue would probably be third.

10 :: Tell me what is the use of trisodium phosphate?

Tri-sodium phosphate is like any other soap or detergent; it is used as a cleansing agent, but benefit of using tri-sodium phosphate is that it does not leave any residue behind.
