Process – Getting ready to paint a stair railing.

Banister rails are complicated to paint.  Spindles, rails and posts have a lot of detail and angles to deal with.  There is also a ton of negative space where the paint just passes through the spindles and goes beyond the thing you are painting.  This makes preparation of the surrounding areas an incredibly important step.

Cleaning and sanding the railing is also important.  Cleaning will remove the oils and grime created by constant touching.  Sanding the rails will help to remove any deficiencies and create bite for the paint to adhere.

The articles in our learning center will focus on all these things and more.
