Stop showers from raining on your paint parade


With the arrival of spring, rain becomes an occasional companion. For painters, this can pose challenges. Fortunately, we have some expert tips on how to keep your projects on track even when the weather is wet:

Choose the right paint | Go for water-resistant solutions like Prominent Paints’ Neuklad, designed to defy the rain, ensuring your efforts can weather the elements and stand the test of time.

Surface preparation | Ensure surfaces are thoroughly cleaned and dried before painting. This promotes better adhesion and prevents moisture-related issues.

Cover and protect | When working outdoors, have tarps and covers on standby. These can shield your work area from unexpected rain showers.

Indoor projects | Rainy days are perfect for indoor touch-ups and smaller projects. Consider tackling indoor spaces that could use a fresh coat of paint while you wait for the rain to pass.

Fast-Drying formulas | Prominent Paints Premium Matt offers fast-drying options (30min for touch- dry). This ensures your work remains intact even if the weather surprises you, and you can work in windows.

Patience is a virtue | If caught in a sudden downpour mid-paint, stay patient and allow the surface to fully dry before attempting touch-ups.
