Default Contour Colors

Hey guys, I have a question with regards to what colors are best when working on contour surfaces.

Im trying to paint a wall that has a wavy/curvy surface. I just was wondering if there was a special type of paint that could be used to bring out the shape of the surface of the wall so that it is easier to see where the "dips" and "bumps" are. Maybe a paint with a glossy tone? I don't really have a clue.

This site is designed for the professionals to come and talk shop, I appreciate that you wanted to get your answers from the pros but for a hobby or DIY painter the is a better site for you. There are many professionals that frequent that site and I am sure your questions will be answered there. Maybe even provide a pic as to what your problem is.

Higher sheen will enhance the imperfections. So the lower the sheen the more hide.

Try the other forum I linked I am sure you will fit in. Thanks for posting on PT, this thread is closed.
