These paints are intended for a particular use and typically include additives not found in regular paint. These paints are frequently utilized for particular rooms in the house and generally offer a distinctive texture, color, or purpose. We’ll talk about the most popular types of specialty paint today, along with some possible applications.

These paints use a medium, such as sand or another filler, to give the paint a texture in addition to shine.

Paints that are resistant to mold and mildew basically encapsulate the surface and frequently also contain an antibacterial ingredient.
