The easiest way is to do all the edges first with the edging brush ... then using the large brush work in about a 1 metre track ... an arms sweep really ... hold it flat ... don't press hard and every time you move your arm you paint an 8" path. First just get the paint on from the ceiling to the floor then go back over the work and using no pressure lightly lay it off ... smooth it out ... in one direction. Move along the wall ... paint the next metre and lay it off. Repeat this until you're back at your starting point. to paint a 1 metre track takes only minutes of work ... the paint is all still wet as you're working quickly so there'e no overlaps or join marks and the job is done in no time. We do recommend that you apply 2 coats of paint for a really good finish and a job that;s going to last.

. If you are painting on a really hot day do remember that you will have a much faster drying time so work in areas about 1 sq. metre at a time.
