Using the 3″ brush that comes with the toolkit is highly recommended as the bristles are specially designed to be neither too hard nor too soft.

  • Rinse it under running water immediately after use.
  • Let it dry after.

faq-15

  • Remove all dirt, dust, and grease from the surface.
  • Be sure to remove any dust or cobwebs.
  • Don’t forget when painting the kitchen and bathrooms, check around corners, air vents, ceilings, shower stall, sink, switch plates, etc.

faq-16

  • Mask off areas that will not be painted with a masking tape to avoid making a mess.
  • Start painting from the corners to ensure a smooth painting process.
  • Dip the brush and sweep it along the edges and corners.
  • Start moving the brush out and using irregular criss-cross strokes.
  • Work the paint in one direction (E.g: L to R or R to L) in a top-to-bottom approach.
  • Use the same batch of paint for each job or structure.
  • Be sure to be consistent in the amount of paint applied.
  • To prevent joint lines, keep a wet edge to avoid paint from drying out.
  • Don’t stop painting in the middle of a continuous wall or trim surface.
  • Do not stop painting until the whole wall is completed. If you do, paint will dry and colour will intensify and darken causing joint lines.

If paint is still wet:

  • Dilute the paint with some water, go over the lap marks and smudge the intensified area using a circular motion or criss-cross strokes.

If paint has dried:

  • Use the leftover paint available or get a new tub of the same variant.
  • Then, add paint onto areas A, B, C and D that are now lighter than the lap marks to make it even again.

Note: Red line in diagram reflects joint lines.
