Always use a good quality roller, our sleeves are microfibre which releases the paint evenly and leaves a professional finish. Medium sleeve are the best for inside paint (as shown above). The short/mohair finish is good for oil-based finish and the 9 inch long pile sleeves are best for exterior walls. They hold a lot more paint than an inside roller sleeves and plenty of paint on exterior walls
Rinse new rollers in water (for waterborne paints) or turps (for solvent borne paints) to remove any loose fibres or dust before use. If your roller handle has been used before, place a drop of oil on the roller handle bearings (i.e. the two plastic end caps) – it will make painting much easier.
When using waterborne paints, lightly dampen the roller sleeve before use. Ensure excess water is removed. It should be slightly damp rather than wet to touch.
Make sure your roller tray is clean when using the 9 Inch Roller Sleeves. Tip the paint into the tray to the paint level shown. If you overfill the tray, loading the roller is more difficult and spillages are more likely. Once you’ve got the right amount of paint in the tray, roll the roller into the paint to saturate all the fabric.
Use the ribbed section of the paint tray to squeeze out the excess paint and ensure your roller gets an equal distribution of paint. Repeat this process several times to ‘work’ the paint into the roller. This will make application easier and more consistent.
