    A quock question… Im painting a lot of kitchens, bathroom vanities,entertainment units and warddrods. On flat large horizonal surfaces, whats the best technique to create the same continious leveled finish with just a bit of brush work showing. Even the slightest break in the continuiety destroys the perfection Im after. Scot Kesler, East Hampton, N.Y. USA

    Hi if you add a conditioner to the paint and roll and tip with a 3″ fine bristle, there should be no problem with keeping a wet edge going and minimal brush marks on large surfaces. I know painters who sometimes apply a light dusting of water on the surface before painting with acrylic paint if they are concerned the air temperature is too high.
