Tip of the Week

There are two basic ways to apply paint. With a brush and a roller. The brush is used to apply paint around the edges of what you are painting. For example walls, ceilings, and baseboards. The size of the brush depends on the detail of what your painting and the area. There are latex brushes and oil brushes. Rollers come in different sizes from nine inches to three inches. How thick the pile is on a roller is called the nap. The thicker the nap the rougher the finish will be.
