Painting a clean, flat surface is pretty easy – it’s the corners and funny angles that will give you problems. A few things to remember:
- Use the correct size brush; it will take more than one. You can’t get into every little crack and crevice with a thick, wide brush – you need a small, skinny one. For wider areas that the roller won’t paint well, use a medium or large brush.
- For a professional-looking finish, use sandpaper to smooth any rough edges that formed when you scraped.
- If you use a high-quality roller, you shouldn’t have a problem with “roller fuzz” – loose fibers from the roller that get stuck in your paint. To be sure, wrap some masking tape around your hand, sticky-side out, and dab it all over the dry roller before you paint.
