Re: Mr. B Buys A Boat- Adventures in Boat Shopping
when rolling on non-skid, roll first in this direction / over the surface, then roll acorss the surface in this direction \ to even it all out and eliminate marks.
It really is easy.
The rolling part is self explanatory, the "tipping" is just LIGHTLY dragging a brush across the work to remove bubbles, lay down the stippling of the roller, and help the paint flow out. You not really painting with the brush, in fact it might best be described as UNpainting.
tip like you are doing a "touch and go" in an airplane. Gently and smoothly land the brush on the wet surface on the move, move it across the work and gently and smoothly lift off.
I recommend buying a cheap piece of 4x8 good -one -side plywood and paint it, practicing your technique. Then cut it into 2 2x8 lengths, lay on top of some 4x4s resting on sawhorses, and now you have some scaffolding to walk on when painting the side decks.
It's 5 o'clock somewhere:
