I have paint a clients architraves and skirtings and could use a few pointers.
- Which degreaser? - I have run out of KrudKutter so was thinking about trying Gloss off for this next job.
- Brushes - I usually use a 2" Corona or Purdy for my trim but always find doing the edge of the architraves a pain as the bristles always split and either hit the wall or mess up the face of the architrave. I was thinking about getting a small fitch or sash to help and have two brushes on the go?
- The client is painting the walls after me. So it looks like my cutting in will be in line for some scrutiny as it won’t be me covering any dodgy cuts with the emulsion. Is taping the walls going to help? Are there any particular technique tips to help me here? The skirtings are 2" chamfered/pencil round so tricky to plant a brush nicely onto it.
- We are using Dulux wb satinwood. Anything to look out for during application? I used some wb satin weathershield recently with lovely results.
