Re: Need help with rolling and tipping

It really does not matter that much what you tip the paint with as the most important thing tipping does is pop air bubbles from the roller

The roller really DOES matter as its job is to lay down and even film of paint and understanding how much paint you can load on it and how far that goes is the KEY

You must tip ONE TIME AND FAST then you must leave it alone to do its thing and roll the next section ASAP before you lose the window to tip the joint between sections

AS TAQ explained the paint viscosity and the drying time the thinner provides must be at the point the paint can self level
