Q Can I do louvre doors?
Q Can I use a brush for water paint, wash it out and then use that same brush for oil paint? And vice versa? Or must I have two identical brushes and keep them separate - one only to be used for water paint and one only to be used for oil paint?
Q
A
Yes you can. The rule of thumb to go by with painting is that you should always do the worst jobs first ... in this case it's the mortar joins. Turn the large brush on the angle and use the edge of the pad to get into the mortar joins ... if you don't get full coverage ... don't press harder ... turn it round and use theother edge of the pad. Then use a short wriggled stroke with the brush flat on the brickwork ... the more you wriggle it the more the suspension system will force the bristles to do the hard work for you ... and don't use pressure ... too much pressure will ruin a good job and wear the pads prematurely.
