Learn About Painting and Decorating

Painting and decorating involves a range of knowledge, skills and thought processes and this online distance learning course is intended to address those.

Painting and decorating involve applying finishes to the surfaces on buildings, furniture, fences, or anything else. Surfaces are often given their final surface by painting them but there are other ways of doing this too.

For example, interior walls may be tiled, wallpapered, or panelled; exterior walls may be rendered, veneered, pebble-dashed, and so forth.

The work involved requires more than just having the skill to use a paint brush. You must also consider all the options and make appropriate choices about the type of finish you want, then select the appropriate materials, understand what equipment is needed and how to use it, and have knowledge and skills in the techniques which may be used in order to achieve that finish.

More advanced skills may include having an appreciation of design, such as colour matching and colour schemes, using different textures to compliment other surfaces, use of tone, and so on.

You might also need to consider things like longevity, since not all finishes are especially durable. Some might last for many years whereas others might need changing or ‘brushing up’ every so often.

Furthermore, regular maintenance can be expensive so whilst the initial outlay may be reasonable, ongoing costs could make what seems like an astute investment at the time become burdensome.
