Frightening Professional Painting Quotes

Here are some Frightening house painting tips, tricks and other news that we compiled from other do it yourself sites, other painters and home improvement stores. This list is going to continue to grow as we find more. These hints are the kind of stuff that makes us pull the covers over our eyes so the boogeyman wont get us:




Quote:
"I suggested this to my professional painter. We tried it and IT WORKED! We didn't have a paint spinner but didn't need one. Also we couldn't clean the brushes and rollers right away so we just let them soak over night. They still came out great. He couldn't beleive how soft the bristles were!"


Response:
Oh my god! If your painter doesn't have a spinner you should fire him. And why would the home owner be helping a Pro Painter?






Quote:
"If you’ve waited several days to clean a brush, try soaking it in warm, soapy water for about 30 minutes before beginning the cleaning process covered in this project. You can also check a paint or home improvement store for products specifically designed to clean dry, hard brushes."



Response:
Um... Throw the thing away. The sentence at the end is priceless. When in doubt run to the store to buy something to help.




Quote:
Dip a 2½-inch angled brush into a bucket of paint, loading the paint only a third of the way up the bristles. Tap off—don't wipe—the excess on the side of the bucket. Use the brush to cut in a 2 to 3-inch band of paint at all corners, against the ceiling, and next to molding; this will give the roller some breathing room so it doesn't bump against adjacent areas.


Response:
Don't get me wrong on this one but... a 2.5'' brush is gonna take for ever to cut in a ceiling or anything else. Use the absolute biggest brush you can! Start with a 4'' oval or wall brush. When more detail intricate painting is needed then go to a smaller brush.
