Fall Painting Simplified by Right Methods Home owners who are planning to |)»lnl their houses this Fall will fiutt that 11 pays lo use n profession^ approach to assure an attractive and protective paint Job. The selection of paint It of first Importance. Since most paints » rt made tor specific vnirptkm, It Is Imperative that the paint to be used Is of the correct type. Thi« Is determined by Hie surfaces to b« covered. Unless skilled In selecting paints, the average person finds It worthwhile to rely on the advice of a reputable dealer. He 1$ qualified to deliver correct paint mixtures for every job, whether it Is for wood I'oncrelc, metal or stucco. When paint Is purchased ready to use. all the amateur painter haj to do Is to mix It thoroughly Just before using. At that time. It Is holp.'ul lo Imvc two galvanized steei paint buckets and a wooden mixing paddle. Galvanized steel buckets ire extra sturdy and have ball handles for easy carrying. They »nd the paddle greatly simplify mixing. Good brushes are almost as important as II' paint itself. A poorly mode brash loses bristles anrt gives an uneven distribution of paint. whereas a well made brush holds its bristles and permits K smooth distribution of paint. When buying bri'shes. It is false economy to let lirlcc be the determining factor. '!'!>•? final chore, applying the paint, Is one that can't be hurried. Anmtuer painters Invariably do n better job If they Uke their time, applying two thin, evenly distributed coats of paint Instead of only one coat which Is like)? to be thick and lumpy. v contraclor. Olher applications include four for residences, one to move a house, one for a garage and one for in addition to a business building. Permits were applied for by the following: '' } Fred L,.
