Outstanding decorating products

Listed under abranet, Blog, Mirka, paint, products Posted Jan 27 2011

I was contacted today by a Dulux representative who asked me two questions?

What is the Dulux paint you would miss the most and why?
Answer: Dulux Supergrip Primer, because I paint kitchen cabinets and the water-based primer sticks fantastically well to laminate, melamine and clear lacquer.

What is the product you could least do without, and why?
Nowadays I am completely attached to Wooster Alpha brushes, simply because they are the best brushes I have ever come across. You can load them up with paint, and because of their design and construction, you can either paint longer straight lines or cover larger areas than ever before. And they are so well balanced. Perfect.

Decorating products I highly recommend

These are some of the products I rely on during the course of my work. Without them, standards would drop down to very average.

Brushmate – a vapour box to keep oil paint brushes in perfect condition. Cuts down cleaning to a minimum.

Numatic – a full range of robust and well designed vacuum cleaners, from Henry on up to twin turbo monsters.

MAV Erfurt – the leading manufacturer of high quality lining paper and specialist lining papers

Owatrol – Includes a range of paint conditioners to improve flow of paint, slow down drying, reduce brush marks

Abranet – Mirka’s revolutionary abrasives offering massive range of grades with super efficient dust extraction.

Do you have any other must-use products to recommend?
