Q What is the best method to paint double hung windows using oil-based enamel?
Load the cutting in brush with paint ... keep a rag with you when you're doing this ... make sure that there is no paint on the front guard ... this guard always stays in contact with the surface that you don't want to paint ... the glass in the window ... a wall where it meets a skirting board. Start with the guard against the glass and the handle at a 45% angle ... make a mark ... this is your starting point so that you can see where you are ... now bit by bit start to lower the handle ... you will see the bristles will get closer and closer to the glass. Don't use any pressure when you're working with the edging brush ... when you find the right angle hold it steady and follow it through ... once you get the knack of this brush you'll be amazed by how much time it saves you ... and at just how many fiddly little jobs you can do with it ... quickly and easily.

A really light touch is what you want ... just the weight of the brush ... too much pressure will only squeeze the paint out of the pad ... Oops!!
