What sort of paint do we need? What type is already on the walls? What is the substrate that is to be painted? What kind of finish can we use? The list of questions goes on…
We underestimate the complexity of paint until we visit the paint store to do some small DIY chores, for a small touch up here and there, change of wall colour and soon we are laden down with choice. The type of paint you choose is just as important as the colour, if not more.
Colours are also very important to interior design. Not exclusively does it impact human feelings, it is likewise the fastest method to instantly change a room. A layer of paint can significantly change interiors, disguise outline issues, and different deformities.
Keeping this in mind, JS Institute of Design organised a much needed and informative visit to Berger paints for its students.
The name Berger today is synonymous with colour worldwide. With modest beginnings in India in 1923, today, Berger Paints India Limited is the second largest paint company in the country with a consistent track record of being one of the fastest-growing paint companies for the past few years.
At the site visit, our students were fortunate enough to be introduced to diverse interior wall painting systems and the various processes involved such as surface cleaning, patch-repair work, POP & putty work and then, finishing with priming & finishing coats.
- The students were also educated about the variety of paints, varnishes and emulsions and even given a demo of the same.
- The students got to know about a variety of painting tools and their application including brushes, rollers and sprays. The professional tools which are not seen with local painters like moisture meter, laser meter and pH paper and their uses were shown to the students and hence, they understood not only about how professional painters work but also how important it is to hire skilled painters from established companies like Berger paints.
The faculty at JSID is always excited at the prospect of imparting hands-on learning to their students. Our esteemed faculty member Lily Tandon, who has more than 10 years of experience in architecture and interior design shared her thoughts: “The visit proved to the students the importance of embracing the new technologies in the paint industry for better interior paint finishes, especially the damp-proof technologies that are much needed today.”
