stupid wall took a lot of prep. But now I'm putting the final coat of paint on it and it looks much better than it did.
But this is really good stuff. Considering the quality and how long it will last, $50 a gallon is quite reasonable. It's twice as much as the cheap Despot paint, but much higher quality.
First thing is to use my trusty Hyde paint tool to open the can.
I like to make three drain holes/slots in the rim of the can. That way the paint that gets in the rim can drain down into the can.
Just put your paint tool's pointed end on the rim and whap it with a hammer.
I tried to get an action shot of this, but failed.
These work pretty well. I didn't invent this technique.
Anyway, Purdy brushes are signed by the brushmaker. I think this one was made by "Chomsay"?
The color I used is called "Roman Column." It's got a little cream color to it. Looks pretty classy I think.
