Before you begin that painting job, there is one very important decision that you need to make. Do you go with oil-based paint, or with water-based asian paint? How will you know which is the better choice? Which paint should you use when painting over a surface that has already been painted? Which is best for painting exterior surfaces? Which is best for painting interior surfaces?
Water-based asian paints definitely has some advantages over oil-based paint. For one thing, water-based paint is quicker to dry than oil-based paint. Another advantage to water-based asian paint is that it won’t show stroke marks as distinctly. In addition, it is easier to clean off than oil-based paint. For many people, of course, the biggest advantage of water-based asian paints is that it doesn’t permeate the room with the strong smell that oil-based paint does.
