WHEN TO SIEVE PAINT

Sieve paint if you see bits of debris in it, or if a skin has formed. A just-opened new can does not need to be sieved.

 

 

1. Use a knife to cut around the top skin. Remove the skin by carefully pulling it to one side of the can.

 

2. Stretch muslin or old nylon hose across the bucket and pour the paint through. Store the paint in an airtight jar.

 

 

 

PAINTBRUSH KNOW-HOW

For large areas use a wide brush or roller. Tackle intricate areas with an artist’s brush. A range of in-between brush sizes is available.

 

 

1. Use only new brushes for priming as they may shed bristles. To remove debris, flick the brush against your hand.

 

2. Dip a third of the bristle length into the paint. Dab the bristles against the bucket side to remove any excess paint.
