When you undertake to paint something, you immediately face many problems. One careless movement is enough to stain everything around you. Paint is a material that does not forgive mistakes. Therefore, it would be nice to remember a few useful tricks that will save you from a number of serious problems.
1. Down with the spray from the roller
In order to avoid splashing from the roller at all, it is most correct not to collect too much paint on it. However, the "intuitive skill" is not developed quickly and comes gradually, with experience. Until this happens, it makes sense to attach a protective screen to the roller on one side.
2. Stand for brushes
Putting a brush previously dipped in paint on the surface is not a good idea. Therefore, it makes sense to build some kind of stand. This can be done from a regular plastic tray and a piece of polyethylene foam (or other similar material), in which slots are made for the handle. The stand not only protects against splashing, but also saves paint.
3. Protective corner
Anyone who has already tried pouring paint from a can knows that a significant part of it is guaranteed to start flowing along the wall. In order for the valuable finishing material not to be lost and not to stain everything around, it is enough to build a funnel corner on one of the edges of the can using ordinary electrical tape.
4. Protective package
What is the fastest cleaning in the world? The one that did not exist! A number of tools can be protected from paint by packages for the duration of the work. For example, this applies to the tray for coloring instruments. If you pull a bag over it and tie it, then you won't have to wash the tray later. It will be enough to remove and discard the bag.
5. Acceleration of cleaning
A method for the laziest (that is, for all of us)! If there is no desire to peel the paint off the brush by hand, the process can be mechanized. To do this, simply attach the brush.
