You should choose between alkyd enamel and oil paints, since the aqueous impregnation are better suited for walls, sheathed the new tree. The amount of paint determine by multiplying the value of average consumption (indicated on the Bank) to the area of the painted surface. The resulting number is double because the quality coverage you need to apply at least two coats of paint.

Remove from the walls of the cleaned husks. Architraves, window frames, doorways sand paper. To prevent the ingress of paint, using masking tape, close the glass wrapping paper or old Newspapers.
Before operation the paint mix thoroughly. Apply it with a wide brush from the top down. To do this you need to drips of paint could be rubbed, avoiding drips.
