Transcript A PAINT PRIMER /^ ROCKWELL KENT Rockwell Kent was born at the quiet Hudson river village of Pocantico Hills, New York, fifty six years ago. Since his school days—he studied art and architecture at Columbia University —his has been one of the fullest and most adventuresome of American lives. His paintings hang in the leading museums of the world. His wood cuts and lithographs are proud possessions of rich and poor alike. His books, are classics. He is an architect, an artist, an author and, probably most proudly, a carpenter. He is a famed traveller and an authority on Cape Horn, Greenland, and Alaska. He is truly that rarity, an "all around man." Up at Ausable Forks, New York, he lives in a simple white house. It seems to be just the house all of the experiences he so delightfully describes in "As You Make Your Bed" would lead him to build. Of all his work, this house (Page 20) is the best. That is as it should be. Painting is fun—every can of paint you use adds to the joy of living in your house. For the big jobs be sure to consult a reliable painting contractor — it pays. For the little jobs you do, be sure to look at the instructions on the label on the can. You'll save money by thinning the paint according to the suggestions on the can. Stir the paint thoroughly. Before you apply the paint see that the surface is clean and dry. A great deal of the beauty of your paint job depends on the brush you use. We will help you select the right one. Two light coats of paint are always better than one heavy coat. If the surface has never been painted before, ask us for the proper undercoat to use. If you're going to put on more than one coat, let each coat dry before you start with the next. Avoid using strong colors such as bright reds, orange, bright greens, on large surfaces. Keep in mind that color affects lighting. Light colors reflect more light than darker colors. Flat finishes are best suited to the larger wall areas. Do not use a flat coat directly over a glossy finish. Gloss, especially high gloss, finishes are usually best for floors, woodwork, furniture. Semi-Lustre finishes, halfway between flat and gloss, are equally effective on walls and woodwork. They are ideal for kitchens and bathrooms. Now you don't have to delay painting that you know should be done. Because Sherwin- Williams offers you a Budget Payment Plan that makes it possible for you to paint right now and pay for the whole thing, labor included, in either 12 or 18 easy monthly payments. You pay nothing down, the first payment is not due until 30 days after the job is completed. We will gladly explain and handle the simple details for you.
