Lincoln students get confident with colour at Bell Decorating Academy thanks to Crown

January 2020

Lincoln students get confident with colour at Bell Decorating Academy thanks to Crown Paints 22/05/2019

Working in collaboration with Bell Decorating Group, we marked the launch of the first Bell Decorating Academy in Lincoln with a morning of workshops for the students of Lincoln College.

The workshops were hosted in the recently-opened Decorating Academy at Lincoln College, which Bell Decorating Group created in partnership with us.

Representatives from Bell Decorating Group and Crown Paints were on hand to answer any questions the students had. Alongside Bell Decorating Group CEO, Craig Bell, contractor/specification sales manager for the central east region, Paul Burton, and Dave Hooper, regional sales manager central east attended the full session.

As part of the event, 27 full-time learners from the college’s painting and decorating courses had the opportunity to learn more about how to choose colour and the factors that play into it from our colour consultant Jemma Saunders.

Apprentice Decorator of the Year judge Kevin O’Donnell was also on hand to provide a demonstration of paint application, showing the benefits of our primers, the Fastflow system and Clean Extreme and provided hints and tips. We also donated products for the students to practice with after the event.

Paul Wilcockson, lecturer at Lincoln College, said: “The session gave our learners a real insight into what painting and decorating is all about in the real world. The event created a real impression upon them afterwards, and our full-time learners seemed to be very motivated and keen to progress with their tasks following the workshops.”

Colour consultant, Jemma, said: “We are delighted to be supporting the Bell Decorating Academy at Lincoln College, and I very much enjoyed meeting the students and encouraging them to think about how to apply their knowledge of colour to real-world situations where they might be called on to advise their clients.”

Bell Decorating Group’s Les Birtles, community engagement co-ordinator said: “The Bell Decorating Academy at Lincoln College is designed to support the painting and decorating students to gain valuable knowledge and fantastic work experience placements. It’s great to work collaboratively with Crown Paints again to give the students valuable knowledge and the hands-on nature of the morning helped them to improve their skills and their employability.”

WORKING OUTDOORS? LOOK AFTER NUMBER ONE WITH SANDTEX 365

WORKING OUTDOORS? LOOK AFTER NUMBER ONE WITH SANDTEX 365

While many decorators will be focusing on indoor projects in the winter months, sometimes external surfaces still need a refresh and simply can’t wait until the weather improves.

Thanks to Sandtex Trade 365 All Weather Masonry Paint, there is still the option to work on exterior projects even when the temperature drops or rainy weather is threatening. Sandtex Trade 365 is uniquely formulated for use all year round: it’s shower-resistant after just 20 minutes, and can be applied in temperatures as low as -10 degrees Celsius.

What’s more, it offers up to 20 years’ protection, with excellent opacity and a spreading rate of 10 m2 per litre. Sandtex Trade 365 can be applied by brush, by medium or long pile roller, or by airless spray, so it’s easy to get the application right for your surface.

However, even with the right product to hand, applying paint in wintery weather brings its own challenges, so here are some top tips for working outdoors in the cold.

Wrap up

As temperatures fall, you’ll need to make sure you’re suitably dressed for outdoor work. Wear light layers to keep in the heat, and try to opt for breathable fabrics, especially for things like scarves as you’ll find you’re much more comfortable. Keep a warm hat and gloves in your van for working outdoors too, and wear a weatherproof coat to keep the wind and rain at bay.

Take a break

So, you’ve got your first coat of Sandtex 365 on the wall: it’ll be recoatable in 16 hours, but it’s touch dry after just two hours so you can leave the exterior work for the day and get on with something indoors. It’s important to warm up after working outside, so maybe take a break and have a warm drink – or, better yet, a mug of hot soup: the vitamins will help keep your immune system in good health too.

Keep moving

This one is simple: the more you move, the more you’ll generate heat! That won’t be a problem when you’re working because – as you know – painting is a physical job, so you’ll probably be fine while you’re on the tools. However, if you’ve finished the wall and you can’t immediately head indoors or to your vehicle, find a way to keep your body active, whether that’s tidying the site, or even going for a brisk walk.

Follow these simple tips and you’ll be able to complete your external work with Sandtex 365, whatever the weather!
