    I am entrepreneur, and have started my business in a small office, though the look of office is quite nice but some of its walls have scratches, I do not want to spend in whitewash. Is there any way I can remove those scratches from the walls.

    Cover the walls in wood Epoxy paneling, preferable with honeycomb sandwich for outstanding strength.
    Or find a German stuccoer to handle the task.
    Works as nice on your machinery.............

    This BTW is the boatdesign forum............... but our knowledge is almost inexhaustable........... as you can see.

    Regards

    Walls are very important, it's best to vacuum bag them when you are doing the epoxy. For simplicity, you can use pre-preg and simply heat up your office to curing temperature by building an oven around it.

    Don't forget to post progress photos, as well as the results of your stability testing.

    Don't forget to apply a good anti-fouling compound to the portions of the walls that you expect to be submerged for any length of time. Your city building inspector should be able to tell you where the waterline is.


    Seriously? Get a tub of spackle and a couple cans of paint and some rollers and brushes and paint it yourself. You will not get a cheaper solution.

    Alternately, you may want to try talking to the owners of the building and see if they'll paint it for you. In fact, I'd try that first.

    Didn't Tom Sawyer develop a novel approach of applying whitewash with significantly reduced labor costs? You may want to search out his posts for information...

    Bugger the paint - buy a couple of paintings to hang on the wall - then at least your wall hangings have a chance to appreciate.....

    couple of pounds of PE packed into every crevice and linked to some nice pencil fuses, light the blue touch paper and retire..........rather sharpishly! You'll never have any trouble with those walls again (you may have some trouble with the prison walls if the police catch you but hey whats a few minor details.......................5 years?
