Paint Shield trim and edging kit

Blog, Painting, products

This is a review of the Paint Shield trim and edging kit from Dave Karroll at Quic Keypaint. The mini roller has a gasket on the end, and I thought the premise was that this design will let you roll tight against skirtings and ceiling lines, and eradicate the need for cutting in with a Read More

Blog, products

What is the best sealer to protect mahogany worktop? One option is definitely Patina. For 20 years I have been using a wood care product called Patina to seal and protect mahogany worktops, oak hand rails, pine tables… if it is wood, don’t oil it, wax it or French Polish it, Patina it!

tip of caulk tube

Blog, products

The tip on a 400ml caulk tube is generally sealed, so you can cut the end as small or as large as you like. However, the tip on a 300ml (retail size) tube of Soudal acryrub caulk, or any 300ml tube for that matter, seems to come with a small hole preformed in the end. Read More

Update I have been looking over a house re-decorating job that involves painting about 1000m2 of ceiling and wall area.

Dust free sanding with Abranet

abranet, Blog, Mirka, preparation, products

Mirka’s Abranet sanding system is almost, but not completely dust free. (When you sand a flat area, it is dust free, but as you near an edge, dust is pushed off the edge, beyond the reach of the suction.) The videos show a) how abrasive Abranet actually is. and b) how effective it is at Read More

Specialist paint products – don’t forget Europe

Blog, Mirka, products, suppliers

When looking for up-to-the-minute or alternative specialist paint products and painting ideas, we painters are no different from the rest of the British population and tend to look across the Atlantic for inspiration.
