To paint a new wall you have to prepare well so that it can receive the paint and give a better finish, although there may be no consensus, we believe the steps below are ideal for you to prepare and paint a new wall. Get more info when it comes to the polished plastering.
The first thing you need to do is sandpaper as thick as 60 or 80 to remove the excess sand left in the plaster after it dries. But this sandpaper should be ironed only to eliminate excess and should not be too strong not to create grooves in the wall. Run the sandpaper lightly and after you finish use a broom to remove excess sand remaining on the wall.All this if it seems to be very dry and free of moisture.
Apply running putty or sealer
If the wall was internal the ideal is to apply the putty to correct any defects in the wall and leave the surface even and smooth, giving a better finish. The putty should be applied in two coats and after applying each one of them you must sand to allow it to be perfectly finished. The last step of sanding should be done with the help of a lamp to allow you to see small defects and thus correct them.
In the case of exterior walls or walls where not normally applied to the putty, it is recommended that you apply a sealer before applying the paint so that you have a better use of the paint later.
Apply the paint
After the above processes are properly completed, the paint should be applied in two coats, respecting the deadlines set by the manufacturer between one coat and another and thus it is possible to obtain a more suitable painting result of your home.

Ceiling is almost consensus that it should be white. Inner walls in very light tones. Ice white is a color to make without fail. Remember that the color of the wall will interfere with the lighting of your home. External is free, but avoid loud colors, no one can stand to look at it for a long time.
