Yea brush sometimes we forget the little things because we do it so much we don't think about it. But for someone doing it for the first time it can be confusing. That's why I think we should kinda look over each others shoulder, not to show we're smarter or better.

Wall covering PRIMER is what is needed, sizing is an antiquated term
