By Ray and Wilfred Stoeber Today, there are dozens of types of paint to choose From. Sometimes several types of paint may be suitable for a particular project. No wonder many people are confused about what finish to use for what surface. * * * * Here, briefly are a few yardsticks to use in choosing the right paint for the job: Lefs take fhe various wall finishes first. A wall finish has three, variables: color, washability and gloss. Wash- ability increases with an increase in gloss. Low gloss flat pdints are good for living rooms and bedrooms while high gloss enamels are best for kitchens and bathrooms. * * * We recommend that you use SUPERMIX Alkyd Flat Wall Paint (or Super Kemtone if you prefer a latex base paint) when you need a flat wall paint. When you need an enamel, we recommend SUPERMIX 4-Hour Enamel or SUPERMIX Satin Finish. * * * Choosing a good outside paint is no longer a problem. We carry one paint that is tops in quality and suitable for any outside job - SUPERMIX House Paint. If you want a good one coat house paint, we recommend SUPERMIX One Coat House Paint. * * * SUPERMIX Floor Enamel is the best paint for porches, steps and floors; either wood or concrete. Either SUPER- MIX 4-Hour Varnish or SUPERMIX Plasti-FiJm Varnish is the best for solid hardwood flooring where a natural finish is desired. .* * * If we haven't covered the type of finish you've been wondering about, why not come in and talk it over. We're sure we can help you pick the right paint.
