Regardless of the base of the paint (water or petroleum product), all paints will raise the grain of the wood. Therefore, you want to rub down the wood to as smooth a texture as you can achieve. 400 grit sandpaper or a sanding cloth or pad will do the job for you quite nicely. Use a 1” or so paint brush and a vacuum cleaner to get off all of the sanding dust. If you have a compressor, use it to blow out all the nooks and crannies. Canned air will also work. Lastly, rub down the surface about to be painted with alcohol on a lint-free cloth. Now, you’re ready to start painting!
