Most are simplj variations on old standards. • In painting, the one real- 'ly new tool to come along in I many, many years is the paint i roller. Though it's now well icstabished with more than a (cw years of use, there are still people who are not aware that the roller can be used to advantage with just about any kind of paint, if the paint is being applied to a large flat surface. It you have failed to use a roller successfully with a variety of paints, the trouble may be that you are using the same roller for all of them. The popular medium-length nap roller made of so-called lambs' wool (really a s>-nthetic) is used for walls and ceilings when using alkyd-bascd or oil- based paints. Latex paints or rubber-base paints should be applied with a roller with an extremely short nap, generally with a mohair cover. The longer nap leaves a heavily textured surface. (Vou can switch materials, of course, depending on what tj-pc of surface you desire.) The short nap rollers also are best for enamels, high gloss paints, varnishes and fast drj-ing finishes.

The cover can be slipped off of a good roller easily. Avoid those that require fumbling with a nut or thumb screw before you can pull off the cover. Cheap rollers have no bearings, don't work smoothly andj will tend to stick. Clean Roller Cleaning rollers is a little messier than cleaning brushes, but is no more difficult if done immediately.

Rough textured walls or ceilings require a roller with a deep pile. This will carry the paint into the crevices. .As you would with a brush, get a roller of good quality. Then clean. Rinse several times and wring out the extra fluid. After the roller has been washed, wipe with a clean drj- cloth and wrap in aluminum foil. This will keep it soft until the next time it is used.
