If you use a roller be sure to paint the corners and edges of the wall first with a IVz" or 2" brush. Then take your roller and paint the wall from top to baseboard in three to four foot strips. * it * ff you prefer a brush, be sure to pick a good one. We usually recommend a good quality 3IV' or 4" wall brush. Start In the upper right-hand corner of the wall you're going to paint, Carry a three or four foot strip (just like you do with a roller) down to the baseboard. Repeat the process until you have finished the room. - • * * * Be sure to use a fairly generous amount of paint in your brush. Flew the paint on. Don't try to stretch it out too thin, Never dip more than 1/3 of the brush into the paint can, * * * What's the best kind of paint to use? You. can't go wrong wjth our Super Kemtone. It goes on smoothly. Covers beautifully, Is washable and has no unpleasant paint smell, And Super Kemtone is thinned with water Instead of turpentine making it much easier, to clean rolleri and brushes. W» hopt these basic hints will be helpful. If you have any questions, come in and talk them over. We'll fee glad to help. STOEBER HARDWARE .
