How to identify type of paint on walls
After reading the post on using acrylic paint over oil paint, I'm now wondering what type of paint is on the walls of the house we just bought. The paint is shiny, does that mean it's an oil based paint? Is there any test to determine if it is oil vs acrylic? Also, the walls have a texture on them - I would estimate that 50% of the wall space is raised by maybe 1/16 of an inch, but smooth. If I have to prep these walls, how do I do it? Thanks so much for your help.
