The Fastest Way to Paint a Wall
Do the walls of your home need a new coat of paint? Wondering if there’s a way to do the job yourself without hiring a professional home painter? The YouTube channel, Art Insider, demonstrates how the average person can apply a solid coat of paint within minutes.
The first step that any pro painter will take is priming the wall. This will allow any paint to stick better once it’s dry.
Next, paint the perimeter along the floor and ceiling, as the paint roller isn’t designed to effectively paint tight areas.
For large areas, drag your paint-soaked roller using a” V” downward as shown in the video. Doing so in an upwards motion will splatter paint all over your roof! The V-shape also helps spread any excess paint evenly. This technique is especially helpful if your painting tray is running low.
When choosing your paint roller, pick a thicker one if you want more efficiency for each application. The roller thickness is called the “nap.”
When using the roller itself, avoid using your wrists, and instead move with your shoulders. This will allow the roller to do most of the work, helping you avoid injury.
