How to Apply Paint to Walls by Brush:
Ensure all surfaces are sound, clean, dry and free from dirt, grease and other contamination. Do not paint over weak layers of paint. Sand back any previous weak paint layers before you start. Where required apply Farrow & Ball Wall & Ceiling Primer & Undercoat. This will improve paint adhesion and promote depth of colour.
Using a fine-tipped synthetic bristled brush, apply the paint in a vertical direction. Spread the paint out evenly in a horizontal direction. On the application of the final coat, lay off the paint in a single direction. This will ensure that any brush marks and brush patterning effects (sometimes visible in certain lighting conditions) are minimised.
How to Apply Paint to Walls by Roller:
Using a medium pile woven polyester roller, apply the paint in diagonal strokes to create either an ‘M’, ‘W’ or ‘V’ shape. Fill in and over the shape, you have just painted to spread the paint evenly. Repeat this process, working in small sections. Always work from dry to wet areas, maintaining a wet edge to minimise roller marks. On the application of the final coat, lay off the paint in a single direction to ensure that any roller patterning effects (sometimes visible in certain lighting conditions) are minimised.
