Allright — it’s time to tackle the “should we sand” question. Mostly because we hear it so often from so many places!
Have you seen paints for sale that claim no sanding is necessary?
Yes, they are out there. MudPaint is considered one of them since it adheres to almost anything and there are plenty of MudPaint customers that don’t sand and their painted pieces look good for years to come. We typically always recommend a light scuff sanding your piece if at all possible. And, our new RAD Sanding Pads are a great option!
Sanding will even out the surface so that you are starting with a smooth canvas. It helps to minimize wood grains. Sanding will remove scratches and nicks. It also helps to remove the cleaning supplies used and any dirt, grime, or grease that may be lingering. We truly believe a little sanding goes a long way and the time spent doing it is well worth it.
