Tips On How To Use A Roller!
- 6 – 8 mm nap covers are used for gloss, and semi-gloss paints, 10 – 12 mm nap covers are used for low sheen, and flat paints on walls and the 20 – 32 mm nap covers are good for rough surfaces like textured walls or contract.
- To get rid of the fuzz off your new roller sleeves before you start painting, gently wash them in water before you paint.
- Pour your paint into well located at the end of your roller tray. Don’t get carries away and overfill it!
- Dip your roller into the paint until just under half the roller is covered in paint. Now, roll it back and forth along the ramp on the paint tray until the paint is evenly distributed on the roller.
- Start rolling the paint onto the wall in a large zig-zag Now, go back and fill in the gaps using a crisscross pattern.
- When you have completely covered the surface or area, you’re working on, finish off by laying-off. This is done with long parallel roller strokes. You need to do this before the paint dries, so finish one area before you move onto another.
- Once you finish, don’t leave your paint roller to dry. If you plan on painting again in a few hours or the next day, then you can wrap it in cling wrap and pop it in the fridge.
- If you have a lot of edges, then a paint application pad is the tool to use. Start off by loading up your paint pad. Next, put it onto the wall and make sure the wheels are and then run it around your doors, skirting boards, corners, or windows. Use long strokes with a firm, but even amount of pressure.
