Hi I’m Bob Vila from Home Again with an important tip for homeowners. Any painter will tell you good brush technique is key to a neat job. Hold the brush with one thumb on one side and your fingers on the other. Dip about a third of the brush in the paint, getting rid of the excess. Keep the brush perpendicular to the surface using light strokes to avoid lap marks. For more information check out my website at bobvila.com. Good luck with your home improvement projects.
