correct nap size


Last time I painted interior masonite doors, I think I used a 3/8" nap. Yesterday, I started painting pvc exterior columns w/ 3/8 nap and it was too textured so I ended up using a brush (the columns didn't really "absorb" any paint so I think it made the texturing worse). Anyways....it got me thinking as I am about to paint all new masonite doors....is 3/8" the best size or should I use 1/4" for smoother finish??? They are smooth doors and I am using Ben Moore paint. Thanks...

If it is full cut clothing, an X large is fine. If it is more body conforming, a XXL is better.

I don't know. Sometimes threads kind of get lost.

Glad you got an answer, from somewhere anyway.

the lower the nap the nicer the finish Just more of a pain because the sleeve holds less paint
