Paint Brushes

The typical paint brushes will perform reasonably well with all types of coatings, no matter what the brand. However, there are special types of paint brushes designed for specific purposes or types of paint.

Paint Rollers

Paint Rollers are used to paint large flat surfaces rapidly and efficiently. The roller is usually made of two parts, a roller cover that absorbs the paint and applies it to the surface being painted, and a roller frame that’s attached to the cover. The roller cover is usually disposed of after use, although it can be cleaned and reused. The roller frame is reusable.

Paint Sprayer

Paint Sprayers are used to spray paint, ink, varnish, or other coatings onto a surface, using a compressed gas—usually air. The basic principle is the same as with airbrushes, but airbrushes are used for detail work, such as painting nails or retouching photos, while spray guns are used to coat large surfaces. They can be hand-held or automatically operated and they come with interchangeable heads that have different spray patterns. Aerosol paints cans are readily available in department stores and even some large supermarkets.

Foam Brushes

Foam Brushes make it easier to control where the paint is applied than ordinary bristle brushes, and they eliminate much of the brush-stroke appearance on a corner or piece of moulding.
