The paint that drips the most – and shows the most – is going to be any paint with a gloss finish. Typically this finish will be used on trim, doors, or furniture and mess ups are not easy to hide. Instead of having to live with the mess, take care of the problem before it starts and sand the surfaces in between coats. Between each coat of paint, allow the surface to dry for 24 hours then go back with a fine grit sanding sponge and sand away any drips, paint brush streaks, or wood grain that is showing through the paint. This way, as your coats build up, you will be building upon layers of perfectly smooth surfaces. We suggest using a sanding sponge so that pressure can be applied evenly and it can reach into the crevices of molding better than regular sand paper. When your surfaces have been properly prepped and sanded, it will make the finished painted product ultra smooth – almost as if it has been sprayed!
