We just did our big painting project (it was HOT! 100 degrees!!). Sprayed white (next time we'd hire somebody to sand and backroll
and get a real respirator) and now rolling color. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my Purdy brush and the SW Duration paint. My first (bright apple green kitchen wall) was SW Cashmere. Nice. Then I did the child's bedroom in Duration some sort of purple and it was sooooo smooth!! I could have painted all day!!
When I did the green I use painter's tape on one end. But then I found that with my brush I could paint really straight lines. So the area with no tape was awesome and the one with the painter's tape had some leaks
and tomorrow I'm going to have to touch it up.
Before I had to focus really hard to get straight lines and today it was painless. I love my Purdy so much I got it a brush and paint cleaner so that it's always pretty.
I spent the $$ on a nice roller handle, Woolster, and rollers, Purdy, and they were awesome! No blisters and my walls are so pretty!!!
Bottom line is: don't skimp
Thought I'd share
