First, it’s important to know where to use gloss paint. Gloss is an oil-based paint which does not flow as smoothly as water-based emulsion but when dry forms a very hard layer. This makes it perfect for small areas of trim such as skirting boards, wooden windowsills, furniture, doors and door frames.
We always recommend you start by preparing the room. Move any furniture out of the way and then lay a Seriously Good Double Protection Dust Sheet and tape it into place using some Essentials Masking Tape. Use some Seriously Good UV Masking Tape to protect any areas around the trim you will be working on.
