PAINT BRUSH LINK


I know a fellow contractor who has no employees yet buys his brushes for his techniques painting walls by the case. You would think he acquires numerous amounts of bristled tools because of the number of appendages he has, not so.

My buddy insists he purchases his brushes only when there on sale. He says his reasoning for buying so many latex applicators is due to there durability.

He has cases and cases of unused top of the line two and a half inch cutting in tools because they will last forever. See what paint does to your brain cells.

On the other side of the coin I have a contractor friend who's been in the painting industry for over twenty five years. Through the duration of his illustrious career I'm sure he has used the same tools he originally started his company with.

As his cherished brushes get older they start looking like seeded out dandelions. With scissors in hand he removes the most offending hairs then proceeds to his techniques painting walls projects.

One person after borrowing a wooden handled weed from my friend asked if he used it to swab the deck of the titanic. Of course these gentlemen would say I've exaggerated their story's a tad.

In years past a home was painted using only a brush. A tedious task indeed. Even with this fine invention some older CONTRACTORs still dream of the ROLLING days. I know of two painters who recently brushed latex onto a 1000 square foot cinder block wall. Why you ask. I being the curious sort approached these fellows with the exact same question. With a big smiley grin the oldest of the pair replied "we just got new brushes and wanted to test them out."

Ten years back instead of a techniques painting walls project I decided to repaint the fascia on my house. I started at the back brushing (yes I said brushing even I can be a little old school some times) the wood and eavestrough. I efficiently moved the LADDER around the house alone in my own little world. Up to the top down to the bottom up to the top and down to the bottom. It was a nice day and lost in my own thoughts I clipped along quickly. I eventually ended up at the entrance of my home. I situated my self between the front door my picture window. I Quickly scampering up the ladder and painted the fascia and eves. Once done I proceed on to the highest peak of my home. You being an astute reader noticed I didn't mention moving the ladder. I had forgotten where I was and had stepped off the very top. I fell to the ground passing the middle of the aforementioned window. My father had been inside reading the news paper. Every so often he would glance up to look out the window. This time his view was obstructed by a white blob with flailing arms and legs zooming to the ground. He ran outside along with the neighbor lady from across the street. She had been watching me paint while washing her dishes. They of course asked how I was.
