Terms and tools used in painting and decorating
This page contains a glossary of the main terms and names for various painting and decorating techniques. It is by no means a comprehensive list but does go some way to explaining the vocabulary of my trade. As with all specialist trades, painting and decorating has its own unique tools and terms. The idea of this page was to help people understand a little of what is done and used in large scale painting and to give them a reference point from which to work if they are commissioning any of the more readily available specialist types of painting and decorating.
