Hi, I’m lethal with sherwin-williams. If you’re ready to tackle that next home painting project, these great tips will help you get professional, looking results, even if you’ve never picked up a paintbrush. The pros know that the tools you use are every bit as important as the paint itself. For starters, not all brushes are created, equal natural bristle, brushes are recommended for oil-based paints. Stains chillax and varnishes for latex paints choose a polyester or nylon polyester blend brush with proper care.
A good quality brush will last for years, brushes also come in different sizes from 1 to 4 inches in width. A narrow, angled brush is best for painting trim, while a wider brush is preferred for large flat surfaces. Sash brushes have bristles that are cut on a slant. Their thin edge makes it easy to paint a straight line against trim, corners and baseboards depending upon what type of paint you’re applying the best roller cover could be made from very synthetic and natural fibers. You should also consider whether your wall is smooth or textured.
Roller covers have a nap or pile that varies in thickness to accommodate different surfaces. A stucco wall or popcorn ceiling, for example, takes a roller cover with a thick pile, so the paint gets worked into the uneven surface. If your wall is smooth a short nap is preferred and don’t overlook the convenience of an extension handle to paint hard-to-reach places. It’S so much easier than climbing up and down a ladder. Another tip is to paint one wall at a time cut in first holding the brush near the base dip the brush in the paint, but don’t wipe it on the side of the can, where it’s likely to create drips.
A few light taps will shed excess paint or pour some paint to a smaller container. This reduces fatigue in the possibility of contaminating your paint. If you’re painting a large surface, a roller lets, you move much faster than a brush working in 2 foot squares, roll. A wide N pattern, then cross roll to fill. It finish with a few strokes in one direction to smooth the surface for best results.
