Painting Tips The Best Way To Paint a Wall With a Roller
It can be difficult sometimes to achieve a smooth, even surface while painting a wall with a roller, but difficult isn’t the same as impossible. You can load up a roller with paint and not leave behind bumps, streaks, or drips as you are working. Here’s what you need to do.
#1. Make sure your roller is free of lint. Take a vacuum hose to the roller to make sure there isn’t lint that will transfer to your paint. Painter’s tape will work as well. Go over the entire roll 2-3x and then you’re ready to add paint to the roller.
#2. Don’t overload the roller. Just move the roller through the paint a couple of times at most to make sure the entire cover has a coat of paint. Overloaded rollers will often cause drips or splatters to occur.
#3. Today’s painting lesson is brought to you by the letter “W.” Use this letter pattern when applying paint to the wall. Make sure you work on the wet edges to make sure the paint blends into the wall well. Get as close as you can to the edges, corners, and trim without living a thin ribbon of paint that will need to be removed later.
#4. Don’t press down hard. You should only be using a moderate amount of pressure to paint, like what you’d use to write down something using a pen. Too much pressure will release too much paint at one time.
Then all you need to do is keep repeating this process until the wall has been completed painted. It takes a little practice to get used to this method, but it is by far the best way to paint a wall with a roller.
